YouTuber Archie Hamilton is an avid car collector and he just added another vehicle to his collection – the Mercedes-AMG A45S.

Picking out a new car is always stressful, even for the average consumer, but the aficionados know exactly what they're looking for, and it can make the process even harder.

Things like gas mileage, how many doors it has, storage space, and front-wheel or rear-wheel drive are all things that can factor into a purchase. However, some buyers are looking for horsepower, top speed, acceleration, and even how the interior design looks.

Hamilton has had his eyes on the AMG A45S for a long time now, and he finally pulled the trigger and picked one up.

In his 15 minute video on February 8, the popular YouTuber explained why he decided to go with the car, and a lot of it came down to the number of details it offered.

Hamilton is a big fan of the interior design.


"I wanted something that had some interesting details on it," he said referring to the yellow trim on the seats. "We've got yellow stitching and yellow down the seats and I think that is perfect."

He then moved onto the other features of the car, such as the steering wheel.

"You can see I have an Alcantara steering wheel," he explained. "How flipping nice is that wheel?"

It's clear Hamilton is a big fan of the little things a vehicle can offer but is also a fan of their speed as well, mentioning it can go zero to 60 in 3.9 seconds. In a future video, he said he'll be going over the stats and specs of the car in full detail.

He does a lot of research to make sure he's getting exactly what he wants. With the AMG A45S now in his possession, it's anyone's guess as to what he'll be going for next.

We'll likely be seeing a lot of videos featuring this new car in the future, so it might be a while until we see something new purchased.
