The Mercedes-AMG One is definitely, positively, 100 per cent coming in 2022

AMG confirms one final delay for its 1,000bhp+ F1-derived monster

Some news of the crazy F1-tech Mercedes-AMG One. You might keep in mind that at the end of in 2014 we created this story, after Mercedes told us the cars and truck would certainly arrive in 2021. Presume what? It will not.

But it will certainly show up in 2022. Definitely. Certainly. Assured. The news from Mercedes is that this time around there will be no more hold-ups as well as proprietors are being alerted that manufacturing will certainly start in mid-2022.

Merc has yet to also verify where the One will certainly be constructed, yet you have actually reached think the engines will certainly be constructed at Brixworth– residence of Mercedes F1’s High Performance Powertrains unit. Last assembly? Will that be at AMG’s home in Affalterbach, or will the F1 group at developing a roadway cars and truck also?

It still promises to be utterly bonkers, the 1.6-litre V6 boasting one turbocharger and four electrical motors. One of those drives the turbocharger for absolutely no lag, one more sits between engine and crankcase (presumably to torque fill) as well as the last two 160bhp motors each take responsibility for powering a front wheel.

Complete power is over 1,000 bhp, there’s a 217mph+ top end and also 0-200kmh (124mph) takes less than 6 secs. Which puts it ahead of that other crossbreed beast we have actually driven just recently, Ferrari’s SF90, which we timed to 124mph in 6.7 secs.

Yet that’s not the fight we’re interested in. So location your bets, what’s mosting likely to show up first, this or Aston’s Valkyrie?
