Mercedes-AMG A45 is a contender for Top Gear's Performance Car of the Year
Top Gear revealed which cars are competing for its 2019 Performance Car of the Year and the Mercedes-AMG A45 is one of them.
Ford Ranger Raptor and Ariel Atom 4? One not only weighs a quarter of the other, but is literally four times faster to 62mph. Mercedes-AMG A45 and McLaren 720S Spyder? Ford Focus ST and Hyundai i20 WRC – yes, a real one, in full gravel spec. And yes, you’ll see what that looks like skidding around on a race track. And on a rally stage, because they’ve got one of those here as well. Porsche Cayman GT4, Renaultsport Megane Trophy-R (might as well put a ‘vs’ between those two right now).
Tesla Model 3 Performance, Jaguar Project 8, Toyota Supra, Toyota Supra again (spotter’s points available), Aston Martin DBS Volante, and then ramping up to a crescendo of track talent that reads Merc AMG GT-R Pro, Porsche 935 and, yep, it’s one of only two in existence, the all-conquering VW ID.R.
