The Mercedes-AMG ONE is a hypercar project that was reported on quite a bit during the development of the car, and once released it caused quite the stir among its hypercar brethren. The car was created using the amazing technologies and resources used in the company’s Formula 1 exploits, so it really does have the best of the best components and systems as part of the hypercar package. The entire drivetrain is trickle-down tech from Formula 1, as is the carbon-fibre monocoque, the carbon-fibre body, the loadbearing engine & transmission unit, the active aero, the push-rod suspension and the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ fully variable all-wheel-drive system. The car is a vision of the future, and so there isn’t a conventional engine in play, the AMG ONE is an hybrid-electric hypercar with some amazing stats. The ONE uses a turbocharged 6-pot with four electric motors that power each axle to make the car a consummate all-wheel drive, and when those four motors work together, the power on tap is a powerful 782 kW. Power like this combined with all the right software and driver aids means the hypercar lives up to the name; the ONE is able to hit 100 km/h in as little as 2.9 seconds and it can blitz the quarter-mile in 10.2 seconds at 249.93 km/h, east up the half-mile in 15.5 seconds with a trap speed of 299.02 km/h and has a top speed up at an impressive 352 km/h. As you’d expect with a hypercar that bears the Mercedes-Benz and AMG logos, it doesn’t come cheap. The company plans a total production run of 275 units and they sell for $2.72 million a piece, or a mere R51,305,000. Luckily for fans of the brand and the car, there’s no need to rob the gold reserves or commission a year’s worth of cash-in-transit heists thanks to the release of a really cool, officially licenced 1:8 scale model AMG ONE from CaDa.
