Is it really possible to use F1 engines in civilian production cars? Mercedes-Benz AMG ONE is such a super sports car that makes people feel excited when they hear it.
Since the release of the Mercedes-Benz AMG ONE in 2016,
it can be said to have stolen the appetite. Recently, the spy photos of the new car have been exposed again (finally no longer need to look at the promotional image), which means that the official delivery of the new car is getting closer and closer.
From the picture, the new car has a very exaggerated aerodynamics package, the front surround has a huge air duct design on both sides, and the engine compartment cover is also conducive to aerodynamic performance.
The interior is also very mature. The production version of the model will continue to use the rounded rectangular multi-function steering wheel similar to the F1 racing car. The design of buttons and knobs continues the Mercedes-Benz family style, and the instrument panel and central control will use large-size LCD screens.
According to information, AMG ONE will be equipped with a 1.6T V6 turbocharged engine, which is derived from Lewis Hamilton’s 2015 F1 racing car. In order to be legally on the road, the crankshaft, pistons and electronic systems have been re-customized.
It is matched with 4 motors. The maximum output power was originally expected to exceed 1014 horsepower. According to the grapevine, the power of this power system may reach 1200 horsepower, with 0-200km/h acceleration for about 6 seconds.
The delivery of the car was delayed for a while. According to the AMG global product manager, from F1 racing to AMG ONE, AMG needs to reduce the idling speed of this engine from 5000rpm to 1200rpm, and also needs to meet different emission and noise regulations around the world.
It is reported that AMG ONE sold 275 units, priced at up to 2.7 million US dollars, and all have been sold out.
