If you do get the CLA45 AMG will you attend the AMG Academy? With the purchase of any AMG the Basic course if free. There are 4 different locations around the continental US that offer this.

I have been to 5 Academy schools. Best fun I ever had. Will use my credit to upgrade to Pro if possible. If you never have been to one, it is worth the time:D

I have never been to one and I plan to. Just have to decide on which one. The one in CT is the closest but I've always wanted to check out Laguna Seca.

Any more details on this event? and any idea how it is compared to BMW's driving experience course? I know BMW uses just about any vehicle M and non-M vehicles, seems like this is strictly AMG.

All the info is here: AMG Driving Academy - Home
You will get a chance to drive all the AMGs they have. They provide the cars, you can't bring your own. I asked about the inclusion of the CLA45. They said they will have one there when it comes out but won't be a part of the driving fleet right away. It will be there for the student drivers to check out. I asked when they will include it in their driving fleet and they said they haven't decided yet but most likely it will won't be until next year.

Perks of owning an AMG but what about the base models that aren't AMG :(

Nothing for the small guys or what?

Anyone can take the courses. Because you'll be paying less for the CLA250 versus the AMG, you will have to pay the $1795 for the basic course. The cost of that is included in the price of the AMG.

I have been to both and if you only can go to one, you have to go to Laguna Seca :D If you live closer to Lime Rock, maybe take a HPDE class using your new car after you learn how to drive at AMG Academy!
You have no Idea what these cars will do until you hit the track !
Enjoy
