One thing caught my is the 8.6:1 CR of this A45 AMG. That is pretty low for a DI engine. This will probably cause a mushy throttle response. Looks great though, can't deny that. Somehow they managed to turn the A-Class into a looker.
Agreed! Another great example is the Ken Block Ford Fiesta. It doesn't even have a Fiesta motor in it, and they made it AWD.
