THE AUDACITY: To help the numbers a little perspective, the A45 AMG’s 4.3-second century puts to shame almost Porsche 911 in the range all but the Turbo, S, and the range-topping GT3. No wonder: the A45 after boast the world’s powerful four-cylinder engine in Sorry Porsche, but your of cars that go from the Boxster to the RM500-600k Caymans and to than half of your 911s will be thwarted in a to 100km/h by this baby
