In order to celebrate the 50 years of AMG an hypercar with the ideal power weight ratio of 1/1 - only reached by the Koenigsegg One: 1 - would be under study, here are some initial informations on the subject ...


Indeed competing with brands that push the enveloppe in terms of horsepower pushing their image and innovation up, Mercedes is somehow a bit behind with its production cars!
Teased with an image a few weeks ago, the Autobild magazine imagined what it could look like on the basis of the sketch and the brand's colors in Formula 1.


The preliminary data announce indeed 1300kg for 1300hp, it could initially put on track clothes ... No confirmation on an electric or hybrid engine but to stand in front of the hybrid hypercars McLaren P1 - 918 Spyder - LaFerrari it could rely on electrification!

Besides, it will mainly go hunting on the grounds of the AM-RB001 an hypercar being developed also with the same power / weight ratio as target, fruit of a partnership between RedBull and Aston Martin, between 100 and 150 units only are expected for deliveries in 2018 and a price over 3 million€!
