When you think about it that is amazing power from a 2 litre engine that won’t disintegrate. Is there much more available from this with a remap?Hello Paul - I have to say I really really like this little car. Have fallen in love with it more than I thought I might.
I'm a a long time AMG fan and despite not having a proper capacity engine or enough cylinders this thing really does feel special.
The engineering is really quite phenomenal with the engine, gearbox, suspension. and AWD system all being bespoke to the 45.
It really is remarkably quick point to point, genuine supercar threatening pace and eats brakes far less than all its bigger brothers did. Chomps tyres mind and I ruined a set inside 4k miles with a big driving trip this year.
Noise is better with the Milltek but it still sounds pretty crap.
Engine is a marvel though, just over 420 bhp, plenty torque and it revs high for a turbo which makes it fun.
