Mercedes-Benz Announced New CLA Edition 1 Special for Europe, Priced from €35,402

47,291: That is the equivalent of €35,402 and 50 cents (sic) in good ol’ U.S. dollars at today’s exchange rates, and it’s what Mercedes-Benz is asking for the new limited production CLA Edition 1 compact sports saloon in base form with a 122PS (120hp) 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine in Germany.

If you want the more potent CLA 250 with the same 211PS (208hp) 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four petrol that will be offered in the States for the base model, you’ll have to pay €44,625 or about US$59,611! Think about that the next time you say cars have become very expensive in the States…

The Edition 1 models will be limited to one year after the CLA’s launch in Germany. They feature special equipment, including an AMG styling kit and wheels, bi-xenon headlamps, lowered sports suspension, sports seats upholstered in leather and black microfibre DINAMICA with yellow stitching and ARTICO man-made leather with yellow stitching for the dashboard.

Exterior color choices for this model include mountain grey, cosmos black, night black, cirrus white and designo polar silver magno.
