The automaker has published a new teaser video in which a hypercar is shown on the track.

Mercedes-AMG One began testing before it was launched in production, which will begin this year. The new video gives an idea of ​​the power plant hypercar in action – the car was tested by six-time world champion Lewis Hamilton.

The hybrid plug-in One worth £ 2.4 million will develop 986 hp, acting as the technological flagship for the Mercedes lineup. He will have to compete with models such as the Ferrari LaFerrari and the upcoming Aston Martin Valkyrie.

The novelty, according to the company’s plan, should become a Formula 1 car for public roads. It will be driven by a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6, which Mercedes has been using in F1 racing since 2014, and is assembled at the same Mercedes High Performance Powertrains factory in Brixworth. The maximum number of revolutions that this modest V6 develops is 11,000 rpm, which is lower than racing cars (which are limited to 15,000 rpm but rarely actually exceed 13,000 rpm), but the ONE hybrid system in which only four electric motors compensate for this.

One of the electric motors is part of an electronic turbocharger that will reduce the effect of the turbo-well, while the other is connected to the crankcase to increase its power by an additional 161 hp, transmitting excess energy from the turbine. Two more engines with 161 hp drive the front wheels, providing all-wheel drive AMG One.

Mercedes says 986 bhp AMG One delivers top speeds in excess of 350 km / h, while acceleration to 200 km / h takes less than 6.0 seconds.

The electric motors are powered by a series of lithium-ion cells mounted on the chassis behind the front axle, similar in type and location to those used in the Mercedes F1. However, the AMG One battery has many more cells; enough to withstand continuous movement on electric traction for about 25 km.

Along with the fully electric driving mode, the AMG One will have a “highly dynamic” mode, which, according to Mercedes, uses settings comparable to the settings of Formula 1 racing cars during qualifying laps. The driving mode automatically switches between the internal combustion engine and the electric drive for best results. In addition, the AMG One internal combustion engine has an increased resource.
