Equipped with a 360-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine (the most powerful production four-cylinder engine in the world), the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG’s strength will never be called into question. That doesn’t mean the A45 AMG is immune to engineering companies looking to boost it even further. One of those companies is mcchip-dkr. Their stage-one tune constitutes a […]
