Audi RS3 2021 vs Mercedes A 45S AMG: what is the fastest hothatch? Drag race [VIDEO]

A really interesting video made by Joe Achilles, an acceleration challenge between two of the most powerful HotHatches ever made. We are talking about the new Audi RS3 Sportback 2021 and the Mercedes A 45S AMG , two extremely powerful cars for their category and with performances that risk intimidating the sports world. However, let's go into detail and find out how far the data on paper differs from the road challenge. 

Mercedes AMG A45 S vs Audi RS3 2021

Let's start with the “freshest”, the recently presented Audi RS3 Sportback 2021 and eager to rewrite history for the 4-ring brand thanks to the introduction of the new RS Torque Splitter. A great novelty, which gives it a more fun dynamic behavior than in the past, with a tendency to oversteer. The mechanics do not change, where its 2.5 5-cylinder in-line turbo with 400 HP and 500 Nm is reconfirmed combined with Quattro all-wheel drive with the seven-speed S-Tronic dual clutch automatic transmission. The acceleration is truly burning, with a sprint to 0-100 km / h covered in just 3.8 seconds , up to a maximum speed of 290 km / h if unlocked with the specific pack. 

The Mercedes A45 AMG S from well 421 Cv is the most powerful HotHatch on the market, capable of delivering such power by a "small" 4-cylinder 2.0 turbo, one of the engines with the best ratio hp / liter in circulation. Also equipped with 4Matic + all-wheel drive, with a central joint capable of sending torque to the rear in the event of lack of front grip. Like the RS3, it features a drift mode to entertain those behind the wheel. The 0-100 km / h sprint is covered in just 3.9 seconds up to an electronically limited top speed of 270 km / h . 

We do not want to spoil the surprise so we refer directly to the video to find out which of the two is the fastest.
