  The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ is the compact car with the most potent 4-cylinder engine that ever made it under the bonnet of a series production model. The car revealed last year was now taken to the famous Nurburgring. Those who saw the time indicated by the stopwatch were speechless.

The Mercedes-AMG A 45 S 4MATIC+ is powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, that for this variant develops 421 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque. The figures are just enough to make the car run from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds on its way to a top speed of 270 km/h.

With such figures, the hot hatch ran around the Nurburgring. Wearing Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R high-performane tires, the AMG lapped the famous circuit in 7 minutes and 48.8 seconds, which makes it 1.2 seconds faster than the Lamborghini Murcielago supercar. “The stopwatch never lies”, pro drivers say.

This time sets the hot hatch right above renowned high-performance models, such as the Porsche Carrera S, the BMW M3 CSL E46 and the Aston Martin Vantage GT8, that ran the same distance in 7 minutes and 50 seconds. Ranked a bit lower are the electric variant of the gullwing Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG or the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 or the Ford GT.
