Striking: contemporary design on ancient streets.
For our latest project with Mercedes-Benz, we headed to the historic German city of Dresden to check out the details of the new generation of the Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC. Putting the 381-hp Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC to the test, we hit both the race track and the town’s ancient streets to discover the ins and outs of the world’s most powerful compact performance car. With a 2.0-litre turbo engine crafted by hand, the Mercedes-AMG A 45 4MATIC reaches 100 km/h in just 4.2 seconds.
The ultra-contemporary A-wing design and the hum of the unassuming beast below the hood, meanwhile, provided a striking contrast against Dresden’s beautiful, quiet Altstadt, or Old Town.
