CLA Black Series??

does AMG want another model in the Benz lineup. The two CLA prototypes, one white and one black, in this video let off an interesting whistle at the top end of the power band, either from the turbo or the exhaust.

This is pure speculation but this video could be showing a test mule for another engine, some sort of racing spec CLA or its a Black Series version of the CLA 45 AMG. Could they really crank more power out of that 2L Turbo 4?

Most plausible is its an overboost function.

Also, if you look closely the White CLA has a full roll cage installed...

what do you gguys think?

It would most likely be a black edition of the 45 AMG.

Maybe a bit more power? Lighter weight? A bit more hardcore racecar?
maybe, but that whistle is eerie. I know Ford has been fiddling with an overboost function in the Focus ST, its essentially like hitting the turbo button in Need For Speed.

The CLA doesnt scream race car, besides they already use the C-class in DTM. It still sounds like a turbo 4 going by, but really how much can those AMG guys wring out of the poor thing. Unless thier fidgeting with larger turbos??

Still doesnt explain the whistle :confused::confused:
it could even be a modified exhaust so that competitors can't make out the maximum rpms and transmission shift points while the AMG CLA is still being tested. Which is funny because the car is available for sale, why does it still need testing?
