Debuting at the 2012 Essen Motor Show was 8th specialty vehicle to come from the Tune it! Safe! program.  Tune it! Safe! aims to promote responsible and safe tuning, and this year’s safe tuning example was the Mercedes-Benz A250 BlueEFFICIENCY.

The A-Class sits on 19-inch alloy wheels with Hankook Ventus S1 Evo 2 tires and has been given a Brabus body kit including a front fascia, a rear diffuser and a roof spoiler. The A250 is also sporting a police livery, as well as a light bar for the roof and four tailpipe exhaust.

Inside, the driver’s and passengers are treated to a few minor updated, custom floor mats, metallic pedals and custom controls for the lighted roof bar. Powering the Tune it! Safe A-Class is a Turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been tweaked to output 245 hp and a peak torque of 380 Nm (280 lb-ft).

The A250 sprints 0-62 mph in a mere 6.2 seconds, while its top speed sits at 155 mph (250 km/h).  Even with these updates, the car is rather efficient, managing 6.1 liters per 100 km (38.6 US mpg) and emitting 143 grams of CO2 per km.
