It doesn't seem to be long before the first customers receive the Mercedes-AMG's 1000-horsepower, F1-based beast.
The promise of years is the sharp introduction of the Mercedes-AMG Project One. Slowly five years ago, the people of Stuttgart were released to the public at the Frankfurt Motor Show, yet after its improvements, the final driveline tests took place last year.
The hypersport car was built around a well-known hybrid powertrain from Formula 1 at 11,000 rpm and more than 1,000 horsepower. However, the road was not smooth: as early as 2017, it was known that the development itself would only take a year and a half, and then roughly a year later it was acknowledged that the project was in a nine-month delay due to development failures.
Eventually, the speed limit had to be reduced by 3,000 per minute for safety reasons, and in this case, not even top-class performance was a challenge for engineers. In August 2019, however, another problem arose, namely with the transmission, Mercedes reportedly underestimated its 1.6-liter V6 powerplant.
Recently, however, he has been increasingly tested with Mercedes ’most sporty project on the Nürburgring and other tracks, but even on the road. The engineering work appears to be over, with Autocar reported that 275 units of the Mercedes-AMG Project One could be produced next year from mid-2022.
