Lewis Hamilton has to promote some of the Mercedes-Benz vehicles, after joining the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula Team, and rather than testing the impressive SLS, the Formula 1 driver has taken the brand new A45 AMG for a quick spin. If you’re curious to see what Lewis Hamilton has to say about the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG, all you have to do is scroll down and click play. And if you hear words like “Quite sensitive, like a Formula One car”, just ignore them, because he was paid to do it.
The Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is taking its power from a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 360 HP (256 kW) at 6,000 rpm and it has a peak torque of 450 Nm (332 lb-ft), available between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm. Power is being sent to the 4MATIC all-wheel drive system through an AMG Speed Shift DCT seven-speed transmission, which is allowing the hot hatch to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
