It has been a while since we last saw the gorgeous BMW M3 taking on someone its own size in a drag race, but the model is popping up into the spotlights in a recent drag race, against a competitor from Mercedes-Benz, which may be considered out of the M3`s league.
Even if the below Mercedes-AMG A45 might not be the perfect match against the BMW M3, and that because of its much more reduced size and less powerful engine, it may be posing a serious threat to the model.
However, judging by the official figures on paper and not on the image below, there are not so many differences between the two of them, even if they belong to different segments.
Speaking of that, the BMW M3 weighs just 1,635 kg while the Mercedes-AMG A45 tips the scale at 1,555 kg. So we might be looking here at a slight advantage of the A45 over the M3, at least on a straight line sprint, as the one seen below.
As for the car`s official performance, the BMW M3 develops 431 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque, allowing a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds, if equipped with a seven-clutch transmission, while the Mercedes-AMG A45 churns out 381 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque. Even so, the latter is a tad slower than the M3, which is 4.2 seconds.
However, these are just figures on paper, right? You have to see it for yourself in order to find out if the A45 is a real match for the gorgeous and all-mighty BMW M3! Enjoy and don’t forget to share your opinions on us!
