RaceChip’s Mercedes-AMG A45 S has almost 500bhp
Ever think Mercedes was being a bit cautious when it only managed to get 415bhp from a turbocharged 2.0-litre four pot? Nope, us neither. The folks over at RaceChip clearly do though, because they’ve just announced an A45 S with 484bhp. Crikey. Almost five hundred horsepower. In a hot hatch. There’s barely a spare inch in the A45’s engine bay, so the German tuner put all of its efforts into refining and optimising the software in the engine management system. Yep, it’s an extra 69bhp (and 30lb ft of torque) from a re-map.
