“World’s Most Powerful” Mercedes-AMG A45 Has Over 600HP, Hits 300km/h (186 Mph)

The outgoing Mercedes-AMG A45 is too slow for a hot hatch…said absolutely no one ever. And for good reason, as it flaunts a 2.0-liter turbo rated for a mighty 376 horsepower (381 PS / 280 kW) and 350 lb-ft (475 Nm) of torque.

It’s still hard to believe that these kind of numbers have been obtained by a four-pot with just 2.0-liters in a series production car. Naught to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) takes 4.2 seconds and top speed is electronically limited at 155 mph (250 km/h). That’s crazy for what is, a series-production, practical compact hatch, yet, it’s still not enough for some hardcore enthusiasts.

Take this AMG A45, for example, which has been turned into a hyper-hatch by a Greek tuner. We can’t confirm if it’s indeed the “world’s most powerful Mercedes-AMG A45″, as claimed by the Youtube uploader, ‘Oriakos’, but it’s right there at the top. This brutal monster has in excess of 600 horsepower and 465 lb-ft (634 Nm) of torque, as shown in the dyno chart. The video reveals a time-lapse build during which an aftermarket turbo kit was added.

It also shows the car under natural light and on the dyno, before seemingly undergoing a top-speed run on what appears to be a highway outside Athens. And no, Greece does not have a speed-limit free highway. The camera conveniently zooms away from the road once the car moves past the 140km/h (87mph) mark, which is likely the speed limit, and focuses on the instrument panel, where it hit 186 mph (300 km/h).

This build reminds us of another AMG A45, which was tuned to 542 hp (550 PS / 404 kW) and 487 lb-ft (660 Nm) of torque by Posaidon. The company actually limited the output to better preserve the 2.0-liter turbo-four. Their car was also capable of traveling at dizzying speeds, in excess of 190 mph (306 km/h).

    This is an example of how numbers; performance numbers, can make a car; any car more interesting.

      F1 car is a 1,6liter engine. FYI

      • Vassilis

        Yeah and lasts a few thousand km

  • KRON4 Desk

    Even if they put a 800HP power plant in, it still looks like a boy racer. Even the new AMG A45 that is coming out is going to look silly!

    • HumbleBee1

      Nothing silly about that car nor the engineering behind it. You pull up next to that “boy racer” with your 7 digit price tag car.

    So this is what the Greeks do with the money they save from cheating on their taxes…not bad…
