Lewis Hamilton checks out the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG [video]

"Big emotions can fit in small packages"

Lewis Hamilton was asked by Mercedes-Benz to take the A45 AMG for a quick spin for promotional purposes.

Now that he switched sides from McLaren (2007-2012) to Mercedes, Lewis Hamilton has got his work cut out to promote the latest AMG products. After starring in an A45 AMG ad with teammate Nico Rosberg, Lewis took the smallest AMG model ever once again to prove "big emotions can fit in small packages."

Although we understand Lewis had to praise the A45 AMG, saying the throttle response is as sensitive like in a Formula 1 car is exaggerated. After all, the A45 AMG runs the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.6 seconds and tops at 155 mph (250 km/h) which is impressive for a hot hatch, but is no match for an F1 car.

Perhaps they should have done one of those "driver scares sexy girl's boob out of her shirt" dash cam videos, then he may have shown interest. That being said, wow, the car actually sounds pretty good!

I really like the A 45 AMG, I wish Mercedes would bring it to the states.

It's fact that most F1 drivers don't care about street cars... (except super cars)

Yeah, well, he looks so very impressed ! Not. Actually he seems bored to death.

Have you seen him drive the reasonably priced car on Top Gear? He was hardly even paying attention, few cars can impress F1 drivers.
