    For Bilal...

    ...not quite a AMG model but it may be interesting for you: the Mercedes A 200 Turbo is coming, 193 HP, 280 Nm torque at 1800 Nm and a 6 speed manual. Your next car?

    Re: Thanks RC.

    Thanks for thinking of me and the info. Well, 193Hp in an A-class, impressive but dynamics will be very poor.

    I can just imagine that high centre of gravity and FWD. The 193hp sadly could not make up for it. And judging by Mercedes manual gearboxes, err, best avoided! But 280Nm at 1800rpm is not that bad!

    I appreciate driving dynamics much more for some reason, and am thinking of getting a VW Polo 1.6 GTi with 125hp, 5spd manual, bucket seats, sports suspension and a differential... You gotta start somewhere!


    See what you guys have turned me into!

    Hi Bilal,

    Is this new A-Class you are slagging-off the same one which you recently showed in a video "lapping" a Porsche TT on the Nürburgring?

    You'll thank us for it one day!

    PS: I keep forgetting to mention: I'm really impressed with your new avatar! Shame about your choice of subject car, but it was to be expected.

    Well, in that case, congratulations to you, CGTRacer.
    A delicate question: Bilal didn't steal it, did he?

    Yes Fritz, the A-class was lapping the Turbo

    And yes, thank you CGTRacer the avatar was made by him, I sort of "capitalized" on it before anyone else could.

    Top Gear tests the CGT this week, so lets see what happens...
