Mercedes-Benz announced the new 1000 horsepower hypercar “AMG ONE” on its official website. AMG ONE is equipped with the powerful and efficient hybrid technology “E PERFORMANCE” used in F1 machines.
AMG ONE’s E PERFORMANCE hybrid drive consists of a 1.6-liter V6 engine and four electric motors, with performance comparable to an F1 power unit. The total system output is 782kw (1063hp) and the maximum speed is 352km / h. 0-100km acceleration is 2.9 seconds, 0-200km is only 7 seconds.
In addition, six drive programs are available: Race Safe, Race, EV, Race Plus, Strat 2, and Individual, and three types of aerodynamic setup can be selected according to the driver’s preference and the drive program selected.
The design of the two-seater carbon fiber body is inspired by the design of top-class motorsport vehicles and embodies Mercedes AMG’s principle of always being tied to functionality.
The design was done in close collaboration between designers and aerodynamics experts. The body is designed based on aerodynamics to maximize downforce and balance. Downforce is generated from a low speed of 50 km / h, and increases as the speed increases, stabilizing driving.
The user interface is integrated with an autonomous concept in consideration of everyday usability and operability. Important information is displayed in the field of view on the steering wheel, so the driver’s attention is not distracted. Without the interior mirror, the image from the Mirror Cam built into the rear is displayed on the screen in real time.
In addition, the operation system and functional system are composed of racing car original parts so that they can be operated safely even in the extreme driving scene. With the AMG steering wheel button, you can activate various functions such as drive program, 9-step AMG traction control, DRS activation, suspension setting, etc. without taking your hands off the steering wheel.
Jochen Hermann, Technical Managing Director of Mercedes AMG GmbH, said, “AMG ONE performance data is only a small part of the technology in this car. On F1 machines, a team of engineers confirms the start. In our hypercar, it’s just a push of a button. This also shows the vast amount of software know-how that has been poured into this car. “
