Default AMG M139 - 416 hp 2.0L Turbo 4

The engineering that AMG has put into the new 416 hp 2.0L 4 cylinder turbo (M139) engine is very impressive. They've really raised the bar for other manufacturers. The specific output (HP/L) is something that I would have expected from a Honda 4 cylinder (if they still manufactured engines like they did in the '90s/early 2000s). It'll be interesting to see how far the aftermarket can push this engine, especially with E85.

While not really in the same class as the STI, the AMG GLA 45 will be comparable in price to the S209 ($60-65k). Too bad it doesn't come with a manual transmission.

The AMG A45 S with this engine reached 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds:

I imagine it'll be capable of low 12s in the 1/4 mile.

And for those that love to hoon, it comes with drift mode like the Focus RS!

30 lbs of boost is a lot for an OEM engine. what turbo are they using?

I haven't been able to find much information on it other than that it's a new twin scroll, roller bearing turbo with maximum speed of 169,000 rpm and 30.45 psi (2.1 bar). They mention that it's similar in design to the AMG 4.0-litre V8.
