Needs moar lowz, and Tint! Sharp looking SUV! Seems like it would handle pretty good despite the fact that it is an SUV.

Yeah, i dig that. I like the simple exterior. Most I see have the optional wing and splitter.

Me too. Like to keep it clean looking without all the wings and splitters. More of a sleeper. ;-) As far as handling goes, this thing is great! Some comparisons from Motor Trend's testing of what I went from: 2015 Focus ST figure 8 time: 26.0 seconds @ .73 g average. 2015 GLA45 was 25.0 seconds @ .78 g average. Not to mention the crazy straight line performance.

Wow that sounds like a nearly perfect platform with that type of handling.

These things are flat out goofy in a straight line stock.

A Renntech or Eurocharged tune does wonders as well.

Yeah, it handles better than my Focus and should be quicker 0-60 and quarter mile than my e55. While getting similar (perhaps even a bit better) gas mileage to my ST. The e55 averaged around 14mpg vs this car's 27mpg. This thing seriously puts a huge smile on my face every time I drive it! ☺

Couldn't get proper traction last night even with Race Start(AMG launch control) hence the poor 60' time but it was my first time at the strip with the car and first time attempting the launch control so I was pretty happy with the results. I'm car #135.

Just realized the picture was from my 3rd run and the time slip from my second.

That's ****ing maniacal speed for such a vehicle. Imagine if you would of hooked up.

Still factory stock?

90s muscle cars? 110mph traps mean current muscle cars beware.

My buddies 2014 5.0 ran 12.8ish @ 109-110 stock and my buddies Scat Pack Challenger did 12.7 @ 110.

If you would have told someone from the late 90's that their big V8 would get smoked by a 4cylinder hatch/small suv thing, they would have just laughed you away. Modern performance cars are pretty nutty compared to what was available even a few years ago, let alone with the big old muscle cars from a gen or two ago
