Mercedes-Benz CLA Fairy Design-1

The Mercedes-Benz CLA has just received a wide-body kit from custom specialists, Fairy Design. The relatively unknown company hails from Kyoto, Japan. It has taken a bold step to give the four-door coupe a style that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but cool nevertheless.

Before that, a quick look at the company’s website shows that it has done work on premium cars such as Porsche and a Maserati Quattroporte. It is also understood that the Japanese company has been involved in the Gran Turismo project too. That alone should give it some credibility, especially when it comes to the price of the wide-body kit on this Merc.

On the front, the four-door coupe receives a front lip spoiler, while the sides are flanked with wide bolted flares, fitted to all four wheel arches. The front flares comes with air intakes as well. Down in the back, the boot gets a trunk spoiler and an aggressive bumper with a rear diffuser as well.

No upgrades to the powertrain and drivetrain have been done here. As a refresher, beneath the hood of the CLA 200 is a 1.6 litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes 154 hp and 250 Nm. It is mated to a 7G-Tronic seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. The 0-100 km/h sprint is achieved in 8.5 seconds.

The CLA 45 AMG however, sports a larger 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine with 355 hp and 450 Nm. It is paired with an AMG Speedshift DCT seven-speed transmission and does 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds instead.

In total, the entire aesthetic package is priced at 960,000 yen (RM34,250) if one opts for standard non-carbon-fibre material. However, should one be so inclined to have the front lip spoiler, rear diffuser and trunk spoiler in said carbon-fibre, the total package together with the flares will cost 1,200,000 yen (RM42,820).
