Say you wanted a fast, competent super car, with something around 600 horsepower. Something like t​he McLaren 600 LT, a $240,000 supercar that produces 592 horses from its twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre V8. That's no paltry amount of power.

B​ut let's say you wanted that same power, but with four doors, a lower budget, and a Mercedes badge. Well, Florida-based Renntech has the answer for you in the form of this tuned Mercedes-AMG A45 S, complete with an ECU tune, a modified turbocharger and a brand-new exhaust system.

All of this combined pushes out an astonishing 600hp. Squeezing that amount of power from the Merc’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine is no small task, especially when you consider that the stock car has a not-inconsiderable 415 horsepower. On top of that you'll need quite a lot of faith in the A45’s eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive system.

If that's too much for you, Renntech has also said that it will offer some lower-spec kits with 469hp and 543hp respectively. There is no word on what these modifications will do to the car's stats. However, it's fair to say that the Merc's stock 0-60mph time of 3.9 seconds will surely plummet.
