The production-version CLA-Class made its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and even though it’s a young model, it already received lots of tuning kits. The latest kit comes from Piecha Design, which decided to offer the luxury four-door coupe a sportier appearance while retaining the car’s overall elegant appearance.
The kit is based on the CLA 250 fitted with the Sport cosmetic package. The tuner adds an aerodynamic package that includes a restyled front bumper with a chin spoiler and a pair of matte-silver air splitters. The kit continues with new front wings and side skirts, new roof and trunk spoilers and for the rear, a new diffuser that hides the four 90 mm (3.54 inches) tailpipes. These tailpipes can also be applied to all the other models in the CLA lineup.
The new Mercedes CLA GT-R by Piecha Design was unveiled at the Tuning World Bodensee in Germany.
