Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar is ready for production by 2020

Following the dominance of Mercedes-Benz racing cars in the F1 arena, recently reportedly their latest hypercar that will be named "Mercedes-AMG Project ONE" finally will be produced soon. The hypercar appearance is very aggressive thanks to the presence of roof scoop and large fenders that accompany the LED headlights and the "AMG" emblem on the front. And Mercedes called these hypercar on the official website as 'F1 technology for the road'.

And again, the Mercedes-AMG has exhibited the same engine as used by Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in the Formula 1 racing cars into the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar. Yes, as already known the engine used in the Mercedes-AMG racing cars in the F1 arena is a turbo hybrid with a capacity of 1,600 cc capable of spewing power up to 700 hp.

However, given the regulations that apply in Formula 1, the engine size and power are slightly limited, so little different for the drivetrain mounted on the Mercedes-AMG Project One will be slightly larger and capable of generating up to 1,000 hp.

In addition to the power generated from internal combustion, the Mercedes-AMG Project One is also powered by at least 4 electric motors and 2 of them mounted on the front wheels as well as be equipped with Lithium-Ion battery pack as its power storage container. These electric motors are capable of spinning up to 50,000 rpm.

While the third electric motor works to help the performance of its turbo device, and the fourth electric motor provides additional power on its 1.6 liter V6 engine. Each electric motor is capable of producing 160 hp, while being on the turbo unit gives an extra boost of 120 hp.

Mercedes-AMG states that these hypercar engine will not experience turbo-lag symptoms. In fact, more responsive than the V8 NA engine. The result, the Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar certainly has tremendous power, with acceleration capability from 0 to 200 kph achieved under 6 seconds and top speed up to 350 kph.

Even so these latest Mercedes hypercar can be invited to run on its electric motors only with a maximum distance as far as 25 km. While for the transmission itself uses an 8-speed automatic-manual unit specially made for the Project One to deliver the engine's power to the rear wheels.

For the chassis, the Mercedes-AMG Project One will wear monocoque chassis made of carbon fiber and use the forward/upward opening doors like the Mercedes-AMG SLS has. And next, the interior itself is equipped with a pair of HD screens, while the steering wheel is made just like the F1 car has, along with levers to adjust the car's control.
In the development, it turns out Lewis Hamilton one of the main drivers in the Mercedes F1 racing team helped to develop the Project One's hybrid powertrain, but he did not work directly. And revealed that he was very happy with this project.

The company said that these hypercar already been sold eventhough made in limited production numbers, ie 275 units only and each priced at $2.72 million (approx. Rp. 36.8 billion), while the production process will begin in 2020. If you insist to have these hypercar too? Let's make purchasing order from now on and wait next production in the row (if any). *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | MERCEDES-BENZ | SLASH GEAR]
