The latest supercar project from the German manufacturer is still incomplete at the time of writing, despite a presentation in 2017. The car is following the same path as the Valkyrie, with many delays and challenges posed by the transposition of a Formula 1 hybrid engine on a road vehicle. Because yes, this is the project of the Mercedes-AMG One, to make a single-seater a daily vehicle. Only 275 copies will be built, for a price of 2.2 million euros.
The hypercar appears to be in the final stages of development, and its ultimate version is regularly spotted on roads around the world. The front end is very aggressive, with a front bumper including multiple air intakes. A huge diffuser with a single exhaust outlet in its center stands out from a particularly openwork rear, while a shark fin covers the engine cover, optimized for aerodynamics.
Its interior seems more geared towards heightened sportiness, claiming the sporting heritage of Mercedes AMG. However, just like with the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the star manufacturer remains quite discreet on the latter and reserves the right to mystery pending the official presentation.
Under the hood, Mercedes announces a turbocharged thermal V6 petrol engine associated with four electric motors. The cumulative power is 1000 horsepower for a couple not yet communicated. The manufacturer announces that the engine could turn at 11,000 rpm, which is an unusual engine speed for a road vehicle (but very pleasant in sound).
