Five years after the Mercedes-Benz AMG One was shown for the first time, production of this hypermodel began in Brackley, northwest of London. Only 275 examples will be built in the second half of 2022. All have been pre-sold at a price of €2.275 million.
Mercedes decided to build this model in Britain because of the close links between the One project and the Mercedes F1 team (the engine is the same), which is largely based in this country.
The project was initiated in 2015, when then-AMG boss Tobias Mears asked Andy Cowell of the Mercedes F1 team if an if F1 engine could be used in a road car.
The engine is a turbo V6 with a volume of 1.6 liters, specially designed on the basis of the engine that has been winning since the 2015 F1 season. The rest of the powertrain is significantly more advanced, as an electric generator for the rear wheels has been added, as well as a second generator integrated into the turbine. Power of 1,049 HP is transmitted to all wheels, and the weight of the car is 1,695 kg.
After the entire car is assembled, it is covered with protective material during transport and transferred by truck to the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach, from where it is delivered to the customer. It is interesting that many buyers of this hypercar are from the United States of America, where this model can be imported only with a significant reduction in power.
For enthusiasts, there is hope that they will be able to import the AMG One in unmodified condition under the Historic or Technological Importance Regulations. In that case, they can only travel 2,500 miles per year.
AMG One accelerates from rest to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, and the maximum speed is limited to 350 km/h.
