    I thought the E63 was a high 11 sec, low 12 sec car. ??

    I think this was done at high altitude in South Africa.
    edit: or maybe not. Not sure why so slow.

    M157 versus M133 Round 2 - A45 AMG versus W212 E63 AMG drag race

    We have already seen a drag race between these two motors previously as Auto Express drag raced the A45 AMG versus the CLS63 AMG wagon. This time around, the A45 AMG is going to go up against the lighter E63 AMG sedan. The E63 AMG has brute force on its side with the 5.5 liter twin turbo M157 V8 although this is the standard 550 horsepower version and not the 577 horsepower 4Matic all wheel drive AMG S model.

    The A45 AMG has 'only' 355 horsepower but it is underrated. It also is mated to an all wheel drive drivetrain with a 7-speed dual clutch transmission versus the automatic in the E63 AMG. The M133 2.0 liter turbocharged motor is proving potent as our friends in Australia showed the platform is powering the A45/CLA45 AMG to 12 second 1/4 mile runs in the ~110 trap speed range.

    So how does little brother do versus its big brother? Check out how CAR did pitting the vehicles against each other in a drag race below.

    P.S. CAR, a drag race without trap speeds is only telling part of the picture. You're professionals? Really?

    The E63 AMG S will destroy it but in a drag race the A45 holds its own pretty well against a poor launching E63. From a roll it obviously would be no contest.

    This title is ridiculous.
    The M157 $hits on the M133.
    Both engines shouldn't even be in the same sentence, let along in a race.

    Title is M157 versus M133 what's the problem?

    We get it, the M157 has more potential. The M133 is showing some strength though what's the issue?

    Well it's not a REAL video obviously. This video is done to market the A45.

    Put me behind the wheels of that E63 above and ill show you what it REALLY does to the A45

    We we all know the E63 is faster and more powerful. But the M133 platform due to its all wheel drive and dual clutch transmission is showing how efficient it is. There is no question about the M157's raw power advantage.

    Because if I wanted to visit a ricer site, or buy a ricer car, I would.
    I don't.
    The thought of either makes me sick.

    This is a performance site and a $50,000 car.
    Puny 2.0L engines boosted to the edge of reliability have no business on a performance site or in a AMG car.

    It's not a ricer car it's an AMG. The fact you are equating it to one shows ignorance IMO.

    Seems AMG disagrees and the video shows it is quite potent.

    Your points are rather ridiculous. Absurd really is the better term.

    Who the F are YOU?
    Slow you're roll.

    I don't need some internet jockey calling me ignorant or ridiculous when I've been daily driving 9 second cars for 20 years and I have world class sport cars in my garage.
    Thanks.

    I respect the 2014 E63 and I am hopeful for the next C63.
    But, the CLA45 is an overpriced STI.
    Deal with it.

    I'm the guy who owns the site that's who I am. Who are YOU to call an efficient 2.0 liter motor and the most powerful production four-cylinder motor rice? How is it rice? This isn't some weak Honda making more decibels than horses this is some serious engineering. That is anything but rice.

    The CLA45 AMG isn't an STI, it isn't rice, and it's a great entry level car. You're position is ignorant. Deal with that.

    I don't give a F.
    Since you own a URL, you can tell a guy who's been building cars for 20 years that he's ignorant?
    Give me a break.

    The CLA45 is still joke for $50k+.

    Yes I can absolutely tell you that you are ignorant as that is exactly what your perspective. Calling a car rice because you equate it to a boy racer crowd due to having a four-cylinder is flat out $#@!ing idiotic. It's stupid.

    If the car is such a joke how does it go toe to toe with an E63 AMG in a drag race? Yeah wow what a pile of junk. This is a smart move by Mercedes and since AMG decided to produce this car of course there will be discussion on it as this IS a Mecedes forum. Calling a ricer forum because it caters to new motors is also ignorant and idiotic. Period.

    You really didn't have a case.

    This is a very efficient platform and it's awesome. Putting it down because it's a 2.0 liter four cylinder is just absurd.

    Great engineering being done at Mercedes. It's one of many directions they're going and doing a good job, as it clearly seen. I'm pretty sure no one in the history of the universe would actually think an A45 is comparable to the E63 when viewed as a whole. I see a vid like this and think "wow, nice job Merc engineers, making that AWD and boosted little 2 liter put up a good showing." Pretty sure no one would ever watch that vid and think the A45 = E63 performance. Come on.
