‘We must have been drunk when we adopted the AMG One’

TheIntroduced in 2017, the Mercedes-AMG Project One did not have a date for its production version. After several delays and development issues, Mercedes-Benz CEO Ola Källenius was asked exactly when one of the German brand’s most awaited projects will be ready.

According to the Mercedes strongman, production could start later this year and there will be news about the model that will have more than 1,000 horsepower. However, Källenius used a sense of humor when talking about the AMG One.

“The AMG team came to us about four years ago and said ‘we have a great idea, let’s put the Formula 1 engine in a car on the road.’ I have to re-check the meeting minutes, but I’m sure we were drunk when we said yes,” Ola joked. Källenius.

The AMG One was introduced in 2017 and was announced with a 1.6-liter V6 turbocharged engine with over 1,000 horsepower. The Mercedes supercar will also have two electric motors and a single-clutch automatic gearbox, given its weight. Expected figures indicate that acceleration from 0 to 200 km / h can be achieved in just 6 seconds.
