Four-cylinder engines sure have come a long way

Mercedes-AMG didn’t only create a hatchback with a dominating appearance, but it also created one that has an outrageously powerful four-cylinder engine. In “standard” A45 form, AMG’s latest hatchback pumps out 387 horsepower and 354 pound-feet of torque. The A45 S, however, is even more potent with the same engine tuned to deliver 421 horsepower and 368 pound-feet of torque, a figure that makes this engine, the most powerful mass-production engine. Add in the fact that each engine is hand-built by just one person and you have a mechanical piece of artwork that has earned its place in the history books. Factoring in everything there is to love about the Mercedes-AMG A45 Hatchback, we’ve decided it deserves some screen time as our wallpaper of the day.
