The Mercedes-AMG One, which was introduced in June of this year, is already on highways around the globe. This hypercar with over 1000 horsepower and less than 275 units produced is also captured by speed traps. And extremely near Spain.
On a road with a speed limit of 90 kilometers per hour, the Spanish Guardia Civil stopped a driver moving at 199 kilometers per hour. According to El Heraldo, AMG One was registered in Germany. The driver was spotted in Teruel, in the town of Cella, by officials.
This Mercedes-AMG One was specifically designed to resemble a Formula 1 roadster. With a V6 internal combustion engine and four electric motors, the AMG One delivers a combined 1063 horsepower to all four wheels. It takes only 2.9 seconds to reach 100 kilometers per hour.
In addition to the engine, Mercedes engineers spent considerable time developing lithium-ion batteries for the One. As a plug-in hybrid, its capacity is only 8.4kWh, but the primary objective was to maintain it well-equipped so that the One may perform as desired.
Mercedes had to install a complicated liquid cooling system for each battery, but this allowed the batteries to be lightweight and maintain a temperature of approximately 45 degrees Celsius. The One will be capable of around 18 kilometers of all-electric travel.
The aerodynamics of this hypercar have much to say, but the AMG One’s faults remain hidden. However, a mode known as Race DRS is employed so that the vehicle can achieve a top speed of 352 km/h (electronically limited).
