The exclusive Mercedes hypercar is delayed again. If its landing was planned taking advantage of the IAA 2021 Munich Motor Show, now the star brand has once again postponed the delivery of the Mercedes-AMG ONE units to 2022.
The clients, and owners, of the 275 units of the exclusive Mercedes-AMG ONE they do not see the light at the end of the tunnel, even though it seemed closer just a few months ago. Deliveries of the hybrid hypercar have been delayed again for a few more months, until first quarter of 2022.
One more that adds to the long accumulated time already, and that then had to do with the technical problems faced by the AMG and Mercedes technicians to homologate the emission figures to be able to roll off the circuits like a street model . However, this time it is not the reason, but the calibration of some driving modes, for which they need to return to the Nürburgring circuit.
The Mercedes-AMG ONE will be a reality in spring 2022
This is the great reason why customers will not receive the 275 units that were scheduled for this fall, after having disbursed no less than 2.75 million Euros. The price to pay for a jewel of this category, which has a autonomy in electric mode of 25 kilometers, and that will be able to offer sensations typical of a single-seater on a circuit at the controls of an AMG instructor pilot.
The 1.6-liter V6 turbo engine, producing 680 hp, is combined with four electric motors to develop a whopping more than 1,000 hp, with which it can reach 200 km / h in less than 6 seconds and reach a top speed of more than 350 km / h.
These sensations will be the fruit of the five available driving modes, including the same ‘STRAT 2’ used by F1 team drivers for qualifying sessions, designed to release 20 more hp and achieve the best time of the table. One of the qualities that make the ONE so special and that justifies its price.
