AMG 45 S vs Nissan GT-R: New hot hatch vs used supercar

The insane new Mercedes-AMG A45 S comes in at £50k. Does it make sense to spend that much money when you could instead buy a lightly used Nissan GT-R?

So has Audi and BMW figured out a way to deal with this unprovoked act of terror?

They have 2.5l and five cylinders to make it happen, what impresses me the most with with the A45 is what MB managed to achieve with a 2l.
It's honestly is impressive, but then again again tuners have been doing it for years, it now just comes with peace-of-mind :ROFL: But no doubt it is a great car!

Mercedes-AMG A 45 S Is Faster Than A Murcielago Around The ‘Ring

SportAuto recently got their hands on one and paid the infamous Nordschleife a visit to set a lap time. Christian Gebhardt drove it around the long circuit in 7:48.8 which makes it 1.2 seconds quicker than the OG Lamborghini Murcielago.
