Exclusive: Mercedes-AMG One hypercar delayed again
The Mercedes-AMG One hypercar is now in its final stages of development, but just like its rival, the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the project has been marred by delays.
Just when we thought the AMG One was back on track, it is said that the car has been delayed once again. According to our sources, Mercedes is still calibrating some settings, which is said to have caused the delay. As a result, deliveries are likely to be pushed to Q1 2022.
Earlier, we had reported that the AMG One was facing cold start issues, which were later resolved. Deliveries were initially expected to commence in Q2 of this year.
The Formula 1-derived 1.6-liter turbo-V6 hybrid powertrain is also said to have been optimized to produce 1200 hp. Engineers have also been working on improving NVH before the car enters production.
The final AMG One is expected to feature some exterior changes as well. It could get an F1-style T-wing at the rear and a redesigned exhaust setup.
Mercedes is building 275 units of the AMG One hypercar. They are already sold out and among the lucky few is F1 champion Nico Rosberg. Those who have ordered an AMG One get a chance to own the AMG GT Black Series P One Edition as well. Speaking of F1 champions, Lewis Hamilton has been involved in the development of this car.
