Mercedes-AMG decided to postpone the release of the flagship hypercar One due to the need to install a new diesel particulate filter on the car. This is with reference to the head of the company from Affalterbach Tobias Moers reports Autocar.

The new filter will allow the hypercar to be certified according to the level of harmful emissions from the world cycle WLTP. In this case, engineers do not have to reduce the total return of the power plant of the car.

Recall, Mercedes-AMG One will equip with a hybrid power plant based on a modified 1.6-liter supercharged unit V6, which is used on the cars of the factory team “Mercedes” in Formula-1.

The internal combustion engine operates in tandem with an electric motor on the rear axle, with which they together give 680 horsepower. The front wheels are fitted with one more auxiliary electric motor. The total power of the units exceeded 1000 horsepower.

According to unofficial data, the Mercedes-AMG One can accelerate from a spot to a hundred in about 2.5 seconds, and to accelerate to 200 km / h it will take no more than six seconds. The maximum speed of the hypercar will exceed 350 km per hour. All will be released 275 copies of the Mercedes-AMG One, the cost of each of which will be about 2.5 million euros. At the moment, all hypercars are already sold out.
