The Mercedes CLA 45 AMG Racing Series looks brilliant

This is the Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series concept, and it looks fantastic.

It even features an 80s-style TURBO badge.  Check it out.

The CLA 45 AMG Racing Series follows its elder sibling, the SLS AMG GT3 into racing.  Mercedes want to make it and sell it to customer teams who will race it as part of a one make series.

It gets special suspension, carbon brakes, a mahoosive roll cage and carbon fibre splitters and wings.

Of course the cynical side of me reckons this might possibly have been a hastily put together 'concept' ready for the Frankfurt Motor Show when Mercedes realised it had nothing brand new to show.
