Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG [video]
Mercedes-Benz AMG has published a nice video with Lewis Hamilton testing the high-performance A45 AMG.
The hot hatchback is powered by a 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol with 360HP (265 kW) at 6,000RPM and 450Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque at 2,250RPM. 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (electronically limited). The engine is mated to an AMG SPEED SHIFT DCT 7-speed sports transmission with three driving programs, double-declutching function and Race Start.
Hamilton is really impressed by the smallest AMG saying that the throttle response is as sensitive like in a Formula 1 car. This is may be true, but the acceleration, handling and everything else is far away from an F1 car.
Enjoy the video!
