The Mercedes-AMG ONE is a revolutionary new hypercar that draws inspiration from the world of Formula 1 racing. With its sleek and aerodynamic design, this car is set to take the automotive industry by storm. The Mercedes-AMG One has a sleek and modern look. It has a body made from carbon fiber and aluminum, making it one of the lightest cars on the market. The car also has an aerodynamic design that gives it excellent performance and stability. It’s powered by a hybrid powertrain featuring an internal combustion engine and electric motors, making it one of the most powerful cars ever made. For the first time, the world’s most up-to-date and efficient Formula 1 hybrid drive technology is brought to the street in this two-seater super sports car. The 1.6-liter, turbocharged V-6 engine along with four electric motors churns out a combined 1,063 horsepower.

It is designed using the same technology that powers the current Formula 1 power unit. The four overhead camshafts are driven by spur gears, and the mechanical valve springs have been replaced by pneumatic valve springs to achieve a higher engine speed. This engine is mounted in the mid-engine position in front of the rear axle and can reach up to 11,000 rpm. The engine operates at a high RPM and is connected to a technologically advanced turbocharger. The exhaust gas turbine and the compressor turbine are located apart from each other and linked via a shaft, making it possible to have a lower mounting location for the turbocharger. Sitting on the shaft is an electric motor with an output of around 90 kW. This motor is electronically controlled and drives the turbocharger shaft directly, causing the compressor wheel to spin up to a maximum speed of 100,000 rpm before the exhaust gas flow takes over. Courtesy of this, the AMG One can go up to 217 miles per hour (mph) and can accelerate from 0-62 mph in just 2.9 seconds. What more, the AMG One is also the fastest production car around the Nürburgring!
The Interior Is A Work Of Art
