This would possibly come as a little bit of a shock, however we must always remind you it has been almost 4 years in the past since Mercedes-AMG unveiled its F1-derived hypercar dubbed Project One. Sure, it debuted again in September 2017 on the Frankfurt Motor Present and the oldsters from Affalterbach have but to ship a buyer automotive. On its bumpy street to manufacturing, the hybrid V6 machine has misplaced “Undertaking” from its title and has now been noticed throughout ultimate testing.
A number of prototypes have been caught on digicam close to and on the Nürburgring, tackling a number of climate situations various from sunny to even snowy. It actually does sound like a Components 1 automotive, and whereas it is no naturally aspirated V12 from the golden period of the early Nineties, the turbocharged hybrid 1.6-liter V6 does make some alluring noises.
In the event you’re questioning why the prototypes are nonetheless camouflaged, it could possibly be as a result of the ultimate model has gone by means of some aero tweaks Mercedes-AMG would not need to reveal simply but. It is the identical cause why one of many check automobiles has a particular livery signaling the E Performance branding reserved for performance-oriented hybrids and EVs.
The AMG One’s improvement has had its ups and downs, however that is to be anticipated while you’re adapting a fragile and intensely sophisticated Components 1 engine for a street automotive. As a refresher, the six-cylinder engine should be rebuilt as soon as each 50,000 kilometers (31,069 miles). Chances are high that is unlikely to be a giant subject since these hypercars are hardly ever going to be pushed that a lot given their exclusivity as solely 275 items are deliberate.
Combining the V6 with no fewer than 4 electrical motors will end in a complete output of over 1,000 horsepower. The combustion engine is anticipated to rev at as much as 11,000 rpm and assist the all-wheel-drive hypercar attain a most velocity of over 217 mph (350 km/h). It goes with out saying AMG will repair all points it stumbled upon throughout improvement, together with reaching the idle engine velocity of round 1,200 rpm (down from the F1 automotive’s 5,000 rpm) and making the powertrain meet the stringent WLTP emissions requirements.
It is comprehensible why a number of the hype across the AMG One is gone because the street to manufacturing has been extraordinarily lengthy, however we’re nonetheless genuinely excited to see the ultimate automotive. Buyer deliveries of the $2.7-million machine are scheduled to begin earlier than the top of 2021, which implies the official premiere ought to happen within the coming months.
One other ultra-fast AMG hybrid is deliberate for this yr – the GT73e with a little bit over 800 horsepower from a PHEV V8 setup.
