The 2020 Mercedes-AMG One is an upcoming hybrid hypercar powered by a 1.6-liter V6 hybrid engine with an eight-speed semi-automatic transmission. The car will have 1,021 horsepower, all-wheel drive, and two-person seating capacity.
The car uses its electric motors to spin the engine’s turbos, which helps eliminate turbo lag and increase acceleration. As a result, the car is able to achieve a 0-60 mph time of 2.7 seconds, which is slightly slower than the Bugatti Chiron but faster than the McLaren Senna. The AMG One’s top speed is said to be 217 mph.
The AMG One will have an electric-only mode, which will allow it to be driven on battery power only for up to 15 miles before gas engines need to engage.
The car’s release has been delayed to 2020 because of Mercedes-Benz’s difficulties in adapting its Formula One-derived engine for road use. The 1.6-liter engine typically idles at 5,000 rpm for race use, but needs to be closer to 1,200 rpm for road use and needs to meet emissions regulations as well. Its projected price is expected to exceed $2.5 million.
