I feel as if calling this engine the most powerful production 4 cylinder ever should be followed by several asterisks. It is the most powerful series production 4 cylinder. The FQ440's 4B11T still remains the most powerful production 4 cylinder, and still has the specific output crown.



Ohhhh Germeezy, again! Welcome back, dear.


This engine from Mercedes-Benz is the most powerfull 4 cyl engine. Of course, we are talking here about normal cars, those that the auto companies produce for the normal market. Of course, you can find a more powerful 4 cyl engine for track, competitions, special purpouses, tunning, shows.... And I´m sure that the engine you are talking about is not the most powerfull 4 cyl engine builded.... sure there must be another more powerful.

The FQ-440 was made is such limited numbers that is really little more than a tuners special and really no different to any of the options by a host of aftermarket tuners available to numerous 4pot turbo engines all tuned to a higher specific output IMO, heck seeing as this is a ford site ford had a similar engine easy capable of 500+ bhp tuning produced in large numbers over 30 years ago.

Shame the hatch will no doubt not be for sale in the US and instead one will need to opt for the GLA45 to get around that problem, still now AMG have put down a performance marker it will be interesting to see if Audi finally turn the wick up on the 5pot for the next rs3, and if the next focus RS finally gets an appropriate amount of power this time around just in time for it not to be sold in US :(.

Is a pity America will lose the power war of compact cars: Ford Focus ST, next Audi S3 hatch, this marvelous Mercedes-Benz AMG A45s hatch, the next BMW 1 and 2 series M... You will only have the VW Golf GTI.

... and, if you prefer to have the most powerful 4 cyl engine in a shape more practical (and sexy...), here is the CLA 45s Shooting Brake.

The FQ440 was a regular production car offered in the UK markets for a short time. So please try to pay attention before commenting.

The FQ440 is a limited production vehicle, and was created as such. Regardless it is a production car, and MB even knows which is why they use terms like most powerful series production 4 cylinder.

Oh , dear Germ... Can I call you Germ?.... I pay attention to everything you say, dear. And, I know that the FQ440 was produced, in a limited way and with many aftermarket parts , to celebrate the 40 anniversary of Mitsubishi in UK. And they were produced 40 units.... 40. Forty. If you call that a "regular production" engine, any Ferrari is a mass production car. >:)




Kisses, Germ. :x

Yes as a regular production vehicle with a warranty, and purchased through a dealer network. This was not an aftermarket conversion like a Saleen or a Roush Mustang. There were many other FQ Lancer Evolutions with the 440 of course being the pinnacle of all that is FQ.

You guys are SUCH HATERS about Tesla. Makes you all seem like babies the way you act like they're offending you personally calling them names and having a lil circlejerk. Everyone is chasing their market dominance and everyone's crying about it... loudly.

Haters about Tesla?

I´m here!

Why? Due to Elon Musk.



Musk is a guy so arrogant, impolite, liar and and everything that should not be the director of a company, which causes that my rejection of his person extends to his company. In addition, and with sincerity, the Tesla cars seem innovative to me from the technological point of view, but of a questionable quality and a boring appearance, with an interior not in accordance with its price.



And I hope that, basically for Elon Musk, this company will go bankrupt soon.

Is a run of 40 cars produced in the same assembly line of the rest of Mitsubishis, with a handmade engine.... Production vehicle? Ha!

...America didn’t lose the power wars. We came out with a more advanced weapon. For the price of those vehicles, you can buy a Model 3P. How fast is that, you ask?

The Tesla Model 3 ... It serves everything and serves for nothing ...
Luxury car? Tesla 3
Sport car? Tesla 3
Sport sedan? Tesla 3
Pony car? Tesla 3
Family car? Tesla 3
Track racing car? Tesla 3
Economy car? Tesla 3
Green car? Tesla 3

It will be because he wants to do everything, that is why he does not end up having personality or attractive, IMO?

...amazing, isn’t it? That’s how EVs will continue to dominate. They can do it all. And M-B will continue dumping money down an ICE hole.

Well, let's see...the Model 3:

was late, is one of the homeliest vehicles ever made, lacks the aesthetic attitude to really appeal to the performance crowd, isn't built very well, and was a tragic comedy in terms of Musk updates.

If by "do it all", you mean be automotive satire wrapped in a half-melted, rolling bar of soap...err, OK....

Being a jack of all trades that can accommodate almost anyone's desires in a car... is a bad thing? Wat.?

..,such a drama queen. It is hardly one of the homeliest ever made. I could rattle off dozens of worse looking cars on sale right now. You want to see awful, look at the new Supra. Look at an X6...a Panamera...a new 7 ser...and WTF is any BMW GT? They all look like bloated corpses of the regular series model. So, stop. Move on to a reasonable criticism.

Yet, you failed to rattle off a single example in its target demographic, and you failed to address anything but that mopey-molly's styling.

It's just too easy.

...so a 3 ser BMW GT isn’t in the same target demo. Lolok. And it is selling so well BMW killing the model. You try too hard to look more knowledgable than you are. Muppet.
