In celebration of AMG‘s 55th anniversary, Mercedes-AMG has now created a limited-edition 2023 CLA 45.

Dubbed the 2023 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 Edition 55, the new vehicle pays tribute to the automaker’s 55th birthday by being limited to just 55 units made for the U.S. market. The car itself is mechanically identical to the standard edition, meaning its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine will generate 382 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque pushed through all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission and shift paddles. 0-60mph comes in at just four seconds.

Performance aside, however, the special CLA 45 does receive a range of other aesthetic and functional upgrades. The exterior now comes in Cosmos Black Metallic paint paired with AMG-themed decals and 19-inch cross-spoke wheels, while the body kit is enhanced with the brand’s Aerodynamics Package, adding a front splitter and a trunk lid-mounted spoiler. The interior also receives a sleek makeover, with black and red leather upholstery covering most of its surfaces alongside a Microfiber-upholstered steering wheel and numerous “55” emblems and logos dotted around the cabin.

Unfortunately, Mercedes has yet to announce pricing information for the 2023 CLA 45 Edition 55, but they’re expected to arrive in the U.S. sometime in 2023.

In other automotive news, Rolls-Royce has just introduced its Phantom Series II for 2023.
