Mercedes-AMG One hypercar buyers first saw their carApril 2, 2020
Mercedes-AMG organized a virtual test drive for One hypercar buyers. In a special room, they could take a virtual walk around their future car and configure it again.
Rana, one of the 275 people who were lucky enough to buy a German Mercedes-AMG One hypercar, documented his recent trip to the Mercedes-AMG factory in Affalterbach, where he looked at a previously ordered package of an electrified hypercar. Located in a special room, the “visualizer” allows the future owner to view the numerous exterior / interior options offered by the German brand.
At the moment, the owner has chosen a red / burgundy livery with appropriate seat belts and seams on the seats, where the AMG logo on the headrest has the same finish.
The configurator can also show some striking shades of green and yellow, along with the classic silver trim that the car showed back in September 2017, when it was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
All buyers receive a small copy of the model, which probably has the same appearance as a real car. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2021 after resolving some of the problems caused by the difficulties Mercedes-AMG encountered while trying to get the 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine to meet strict WLTP emission standards. As you may remember, the hypercar engine with its “red” zone, located at 11,000 rpm and with a power of more than 1,000 horsepower, was taken from a 2016 F1 W07 race car and will function normally for 50,000 kilometers, after which its restructuring will be required.
The video also mentions that five prototypes of the hypercar have already been built and are being tested worldwide. It is reported that the car will also pass high-speed tests on the Nurburgring race track in order to try to drive the lap faster than the current champion – Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, who drove the track in 6 minutes 44.97 seconds.
