The production of Mercedes AMG-One customer vehicles has kicked off. The hypercar with Formula 1 technology goes into exclusive small-series production where only 275 cars are to be built.
According to a statement, the Formula 1-based hybrid powertrain, with a 1.6-liter V6 turbo engine and four electric motors, is being built by the motorsport experts at Mercedes-AMG in the UK. They are also responsible for developing and producing the power units for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 racing cars.
The production of complete vehicles will transpire in the UK, where Mercedes AMG-One has collaborated with manufacturing partner Multimatic for a dedicated production facility. The first slot of vehicles will be delivered in the second half of 2022.
“The Mercedes-AMG One is the most ambitious project we have ever undertaken – from development to production. It marks another high point in Mercedes-AMG’s successful strategic development toward an electrified future of driving performance. The production of the exclusive small series is a truly unique challenge. For the first time, the hypercar brings current Formula 1 hybrid technology almost one-to-one from the race track to the road and combines overwhelming performance with exemplary efficiency,” says Philipp Schiemer, chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
The exclusive car production is completed by hand at 16 assembly and testing stations. Over 50 specialists work on each hypercar unit.
A roll-out marks the final production stage at a nearby proving ground, where each Mercedes-AMG One undergoes final acceptance testing by a factory test driver. Technical briefing and vehicle handover happen at the Mercedes-AMG headquarters in Affalterbach.
