Mercedes Benz The first deliveries are scheduled for 2022
Sube tension. The Mercedes-AMG Project One, a model that is (making a simplified analysis) half a street car, half Formula 1, continues to burn stages in its development and its appearances are increasingly frequent … which is a sign that its arrival is near.
The last time we saw him was immediately after the conclusion of the Formula 1 World Championship and now, just two months later, the hypercar German engine powered directly from the Formula 1 car appears rolling on the track at full capacity.
The AMG Project One should arrive at the end of this year 2021 or early 2022 (the complications derived from the pandemic and the additional difficulty of this model to fine-tune compliance with emissions regulations play against you) and when you do mark a milestone in automotive history as it will be the first production car powered by a authentic F1 engine, that of the 2015 Mercedes champion.
The 1.6 V6 turbo hbrido racing car has been adapted to the special needs of a road car, reducing its maximum speed of rotation -which still remains higher than usual in conventional sports cars since it is estimated to be at 11,000 rpm -, increasing its useful life (a critical aspect in development) and, above all, adapting to emission requirements current and future. Mercedes has not yet provided her horse figure, but we do know that above 1,000 (barrier that the Ferrari SF90 Stradale broke first) and surely close to 1,160 of which will be its archrival of Aston Martin.
Because when all the batch of hper sports in development see the light this segment live a it was gold, since the German jewel will be joined by others with the same pedigr racing, like the Aston Martin Valkyrie, designed and developed by the genius Adrian Newey (from which, in addition, a whole family of models will be derived). And not far behind in terms of extreme qualities is the Bugatti Bolide, for example.
Slo 275 lucky can enjoy driving this special model whose price will be at that level of exclusivity since it is estimated that exceed 2.5 million euros.
