After first being unveiled in early 2013, we got a closer look at the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Edition 1 during the Detroit Auto Show earlier this month.

The AMG edition of the new four-door coupe features a 2.0 liter, four cylinder turbocharged engine with 360 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, allowing it to 0-60 in under 4.6 seconds. It also sportsĀ a seven-speed, and dual-clutch gearbox.

The model displayed here (from NAIAS) boasts a Cirrus White exterior color with graphite stripes along the sides, a gloss black rear spoiler, contrasting red hits, and matte black 19-inch wheels.

The interior is done up in black leather with red hits, along the stitching and other elements to match the outside of the vehicle. Carbon fiber trim is also added as an upgrade, though aluminum is the base with additional options of walnut and ash wood.

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 Edition 1 starts at just under $48,000.
