The Mercedes A45 AMG Ownership Experience [Video]
text size: A- A+
To start this AMG loving weekend off, we’d like to talk about the A45 AMG… again. One of Shmee150 recently bought one and thus we can show you a video of it driving through London, doing things you’d do in this owner’s place. The windows are down, so we get to hear that 360 PS engine scream through really busy streets and tunnels. It sounds a bit like a hot hatch cup race car, like a Megane RS Trophy maybe, but being blipped and revved by an automated gearbox.
This isn’t the first time somebody has made a hot hatch with over 300 horsepower – cars like the Audi RS3 or the Ford Focus RS immediately spring to mind. But this has the styling of a Mercedes which is always going to be desirable. From the sharply cut wheels to the graphics of the taillights and that sexy interior, it’s just a cool car to own.
The one bad thing we can say is that the A45 is nothing like as crazy as something like an M3 or a C63, but it’s very nearly there.
Shmee150 says his friend’s car is the first one in the United Kingdom, which means he probably bough it “blind”, without testing it for any significant period of time. That shows you just how committed some people are to the AMG brand.
