Mercedes-AMG One hypercar breaks ground with new technology: Key facts
Mercedes-Benz has introduced the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar following its unveiling of the Project One hypercar concept back in 2017. The hypercar not only comes with an exuberant design but groundbreaking technology as well. As promised during the concept unveiling five and half years back, the German automaker has introduced the AMG One production model with an engine that comes straight from the Formula One racing circuit.
Here are the key facts about the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar and its powertrain.
Mercedes-AMG One hypercar draws power from a 1.6-litre V6 ICE unit that is capable of churning out 566 hp of power output on its own. This engine is the same 1.6-litre V6 motor that is used in the current Formula One racing cars. This strategy makes the Mercedes-AMG One the first street-legal hypercar with an F1 engine under its skin.
