    a better comparison would of been if both cars were put on a circuit.

    whots the point?  a rolling start would be better!   Not like everyone going to be drag raceing of the traffic lights"

    Rolling start and it would be much less difference. But on the track the AMG is left for dead.

    That AMG is something else then… That's worth 10 k imho, also looks way more expensive!

    the AMG is faster.. true.
    But the smile that the Civic puts on your face…

    I've owned both of these cars and I can tell you out on the road the performance is a lot closer that what this
    drag race shows.

    I knew the Civic was going to get crushed…and it's a fast FWD car!
    AMG All wheel drive w/ 70+ more HP is a formidable foe…my gosh
    It's quite unfair!

    Too make this test more realistic and real life I think the race should be a rolling start from 30mph up too 90mph, this would simulate a real world scenario much much better IMO

    type R is a track car not a drag racing car. track times on type R are really good compared to it's rivals

    you should always compare the rolling start as well when comparing cars like this

    Hmm.. I'm considering buying that Merc. Mostly because if i happen to come across the Civic Type R in the real world, i'd like to leave it behind me before the stomach upset its horrible looks have caused, makes me vomit.

    Im sure no one wanted to see this drag race, we want the A45 vs the RS3

    Dacia Sandero 1,5 DCi VS 991 Porsche Turbo S!

    AMG has really succeeded with this one , it's not that perfect but for a start in this category , they've done way too much compared to any other brand .

    10k more is easily justified.

    You get awd, a better stronger engine, a dual clutch transmission, definitely a better sounding car, more luxury, better looking(opinion).

    Personnaly it's enough for me to explain the price tag. Finally, you get a benz, not a honda.

    It's not much good asking "how many seconds faster" when you don't say over what distance/speed! As a general point, could you add some detail on how fast each car got to 60 and 100mph? Would be nice to know as well.

  18. Amit Prulov

    i think that the bmw m2 vs the a45 amg is much more interesting

  19. VMGaming

    Would be much more interesting doing these from a 20mph roll…..

    You put all that effort into the video, why not try a rolling start as well as a race off the line?

    I'm a huge fan boy of the M140i but most of the new 'hot hatches' are amazing!
