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.
