Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG rolls out on Dunlop Sport Maxx RT
Dunlop will supply its Sport Maxx RT tyre to Mercedes-AMG as original equipment on its new CLA 45 AMG model in size 235/35ZR19 91Y XL MO, which was specially designed for the sporty coupé.
With a peak output of 265 kW (360 hp) and maximum torque of 450 Newton meters, its turbocharged engine is the most powerful four-cylinder unit in series production worldwide. The tyre is designed to meet to the needs of driving aficionados. The Sport Maxx RT is characterised by its high level of grip on dry and wet roads combined with excellent handling capabilities and great braking performance, Dunlop says.
The tyre is built using Dunlop’s racing technologies, as is the case with all Dunlop road tyres. This technological lineage can stem from the compound or the hundreds of thousands of hours of track experience brought in by its engineers.
The fitment is in line with several other fitments of Dunlop’s Sport Maxx RT and Sport Maxx Race to new high performance Mercedes-AMG cars. This includes the C63 AMG Coupé Black Series, the A45 AMG, the SLS AMG GT and now its CLA 45 AMG model.
“The fitment on the new CLA 45 AMG is another example of our ability to deliver new levels of excellence to high performance driving,” said Guillaume Carli, marketing manager at Dunlop EMEA. “Our Sport Maxx RT tyres deliver excellent performance, enabling the massive power generated by the CLA 45 AMG to be transferred to the road in an optimal manner.”
