Why pay so much money to get so little performance out of this car when an A250 AMG with a supersport bike in your garage can be the best combo?

Wow people...

Digitalnonsense  8y ago

I got 12.43 @114.8 mph for my1/4 mile run in my A45. 180 mph must have been downhill, with a tail wind, and using the same launch system as fighter jets use coming off an aircraft carrier....

I still call the quartermile trap number b.s. (unless it was a mistake).


User avatar

uptownfunker  8y ago

The reason why it says 179 mph is I think because if someone put 111 mph as the trap speed, no one will ever find the test on Google.

xpaxa  9y ago

there is no way that a 45 amg was below 7:50 mark now way!no no no


User avatar

NIN  9y ago

179mph was probably supposed to be 179kph (111.2mph).

It was simply entered wrong. Someone will fix it.

@ Viking: Your MR2 with that much power would be awesome, buy a Mercedes Benz AMG engine in a Toyota? Weird.


User avatar

Hamcee  10y ago

its not a tuned exhaust.
its an additional option for 595€ at the mercedes benz configurator.

so its stock


User avatar

Viking  10y ago

@BR2+ I am beginning to think that this car's engine would fit better in my Toyota MR2 Spyder. :)


User avatar

BR2+  10y ago

..I am starting to like this little thing more and more, But I so wish it were a coupe instead.

Im also not totally sure, but im not sure if 4wd fits it or not, dunno.

A Bmw M135I XDrive CSL should compete with the A45 AMG GT BlackSeries and Audi RS3 Plus, if they were to make those to, it would be a hell of a battle.

But id prolly take a 1M Coupe over this, a Shame they dropped it after only 2 years.

@Lafars

That does sound good, damn good, better then an R8 or "Just" about any other 4Cylinder engine, but, that was also a Tuned exhaust, so its a bit unfair, but still sounds fantastic.
