The winner of Australia's Best Cars 2014 in the category of Sports Car between $50,000-$100,000 was Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG.
The Mercedes was a completepackages.
It had very strong performance on road, it was well set up for track work aswell it's got Brenbo brakes, its got Ricaro seats, it really was a complete sports car.
It's a good every day car aswell.
It just was a complete package.
Under the bonnet of the A 45 AMG is a 4 cylinder, 2 litre turbocharged petrol engine.
It's Australia's most powerful turbo engine in the market at the moment.
Transmission is aseven-speed automatic gearbox paddle shifts as well.
It's a very explosivetype of performance but also quite useable as well.
It'sbeautifully finished in the typical Mercedes-Benz way, being a sports car it does have thatsporting flavour on the inside.
There's no doubt about the intensions with his car It's got that big wing on the back, very low profile tyres, its got a stance which says it means business.
It's hugely excitingto drive Revved to well over 7000RPM and when you do change gears it lets off an enormous crack out of the exhaust.
There was a lot of debate between the judges on whether this car or its very close competitors should win.
Did have those few extra features thatjust push it above the others and got it through to the win this year.
