Mercedes-AMG’s F1-engined hypercar in the works

Mercedes-AMG’s F1-engined hypercar in the works

To commemorate AMG’s 50th anniversary, Mercedes and AMG are believed to be hard at work to roll out a mid-engined hypercar.

Last weekend, sources within the company revealed that this hypercar is in the final stages of design, post which the engineering development will begin. The Merc-AMG F1 team has been on a high of late, and their ultimate quest to be invincible looks obvious from the thought process behind this hypercar. Power to the wheels will be supplied by the same 1.6-litre bi-turbo V6 engine which also finds its way into the 2016 F1 car. Two 80bhp electric motors will be placed on the front wheels to aid performance, and the total output is set to be in the region of 1000bhp. This powertrain is expected to be assembled at the Mercedes-AMG high performance powertrains facility in the United Kingdom.

Rumoured to tip the scales at just 1000kg, designers will have the opportunity to use carbon fibre monocoque, extreme aerodynamics similar to the Aston Martin-Red Bull 001, and also accommodate a gullwing cockpit for resemblance to models like the SLS. Reports claim that the top speed could exceed 354kmph while delivering a 0-100kmph run in under 2.5sec.

For now, that’s just about everything we could find on the upcoming Mercedes-AMG hypercar, however, we will give you the gist in the months to come.
