Perhaps no other Mercedes has garnered as much attention lately as the Mercedes-AMG One. The hypercar was first unveiled as a concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show well over five years ago and its production version was unveiled in June 2022. And now the delivery process of the very first Mercedes-AMG One has begun.
The Mercedes-AMG One is probably the most stunning Mercedes of all time and definitely one of the fastest and most powerful. The Mercedes-AMG One looks absolutely stunning in a dark black with Petronas Green accents. There are some subtle dashes of red on the grille and the lettering “AMG”.
However, the Mercedes-AMG One is much more than its stunning looks. It’s fast. Seriously fast. With 1,049 hp, it is advertised as a racing car for the road and is now also the fastest road-legal production vehicle around the legendary Nürburgring. The single-turbo V6 engine alone produces 566 hp, while the quartet of electric motors, one for each front wheel, together generate 322 hp. Transmission duties are handled by a seven-speed automatic, while there’s also an 8.4 kWh lithium-ion battery pack for around 11 miles of zero-emission driving. Overall, the Mercedes-AMG One accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds and sprints to the 200 km/h mark in seven seconds. The top speed of the hypercar is 352 km/h.
Now it can be road legal while being very fast on the track. But who is the first owner of the Mercedes-AMG One has not yet been determined. However, it is confirmed that the likes of Lewis Hamilton, David Coulthard and Nico Rosberg have expressed interest in bringing home one of these super exclusive vehicles. The Mercedes-AMG One is manufactured at the AMG plant in Coventry, Great Britain.
