Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG
This is the newest car on our list and it was only officially launched this year. So how can it mix with much bigger and much more expensive cars? Well, the A45 AMG is the very first AMG powered hot hatch from Mercedes and what a treat it is. Mercedes engineers nicknamed the A45 AMG "The Beast" during their development of it, and under the bonnet you'll find a remarkable 2.0-litre turbo engine that produces a whopping 355 bhp. Mercedes reckons that the A45 AMG has more power per litre than any other production car in the world. With launch control, the car will complete the 0 - 60 mph sprint in just 4.1 seconds and it'll go on to an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph. It isn't the drag times that make this car quick, however, as it's also got a full 331 lb/ft of torque to get you moving whilst in a higher gear at lower speeds. In a straight line, the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG is faster than a CLS63 AMG as Autoexpress.co.uk found out recently (here is the drag race on YouTube).
