Finally, $2 Million-plus Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar confirmed to enter production in Mid-2022.
Mercedes-AMG One was first shown as a concept in September 2017 at IAA in Frankfurt,Germany.
All 275 cars have long been sold to wealthy buyers eager to get the pinnacle of AMG engineering.
Mercedes-Benz has finally revealed that the production of the Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar would kick start around June next year. First shown as a concept in September 2017 at IAA in Frankfurt, the production-ready model has suffered multiple setbacks during the development phase, with AMG having to delay customer deliveries more than once.
Thankfully, Autocar has learned from the three-pointed star that production will finally kick off around the middle of next year.
No additional details have been provided, but all 275 cars worth $2-million-plus each have long been sold to wealthy buyers eager to get the pinnacle of AMG engineering. Fitted with an adaptation of the 2017 championship-winning Mercedes F1 engine, the One will be an all-wheel-drive monster with four electric motors and a 1.6-liter turbo V6 generating a combined output of over 1,000 horsepower.
Two e-motors will drive the front wheels, one will be built into the turbocharger, and the fourth will sit directly on the combustion engine with a link to the crankcase.
When the Project One debuted four years ago, AMG promised a 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) run in less than six seconds and a top speed in excess of 217 mph (350 km/h).
Aside from running into issues with lowering the rpm levels of the 1.6-liter engine for the street-legal car, AMG also had problems with the V6’s noise as it was originally too loud for a production vehicle.
When the One finally arrives in production form, it could grab the title for the fastest production car at the Nürburgring. In 2018, AMG went as far as to say it could establish the outright record, which would be downright remarkable considering the track-only Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo driven by Timo Bernhard set an amazing lap time of 5 minutes and 19.55 seconds in June 2018 with an average speed of 145.3 mph (233.8 km/h).
