BMW M2 Vs. Mercedes A45 AMG Drag Race Needs Wicked Photo Finish

Article Written by : Legendary Videos

While one of these vehicles does technically win the drag race, the difference between the new BMW M2 and a Mercedes-AMG A45 would only count if you were in the middle of the qualifying session. As far as real world performance goes, the A45 and the BMW M2 are two very similar sports cars, even though one’s a hatchback and the other the small coupe. Other differences include traction, engine size and a bit of weight, but other than that, there isn’t much between them in the straight line, at least not on paper. The Mercedes-AMG A45 is still the world’s most powerful hot hatchback. Its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine sends 376 hp and 350 lb-ft to all four wheels, while the BMW can only use its rear wheels in order to find grip. The BMW M2 is otherwise good for 365hp and 342 lb-ft of torque coming from its 3.0-liter 6-cylinder unit, while also weighing less than a Merc by approximately 75 lbs. With the Bimmer down on power, traction and torque, it seems the Mercedes-AMG A45 should have everything it needs in order to cross a line first. But will it?

That was pretty crazy. Wait until you see this next video below...
