Disappointment? The new Mercedes-AMG A 45 S has just clocked a very light time advantage ahead of the Renault Megane RS Trophy on the Hockenheim race track.
The new Mercedes-AMG A 45 S has a very impressive technical data sheet. With its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine producing 421 horsepower, it’s the most powerful compact sports car in the world. Mercedes-AMG also advertises a 0 to 100 km / hour sprint of just 3.9 seconds, unprecedented for a car in this segment.
Now, the German journalists from Sport Auto magazine have brought the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S to the Hockenheim circuit, just to see how the hot hatch manages on this track with many chronometric references (see video).
Barely in front of the Megane RS Trophy
And the result achieved finally seems a little disappointing. With a lap time of 2:00:70, the Mercedes-AMG A 45 S finished only one tenth ahead of the 300-horsepower Renault Megane RS Trophy. And 1.2 seconds behind the Audi TT RS and its 400 horsepower. The fight is on!
