Like the Porsche Carrera GT and McLaren F1 before it, the 1-of-275 Mercedes-AMG ONE has the makings of a future classic. This modern hypercar is powered by an F1 powertrain, a 1.6-litre Turbo V6 and four electric motors to be specific, for a total combined power output of 782 kW (1063 hp). This propels the ONE from 0-100km/h in 2.9 seconds, and 0-200km/h in 7.0 seconds, before going on to a top speed of 352 km/h.
More impressively, the vehicle holds the production car record at the Nürburgring-Nordschleife with a time of 6:30.705 minutes. That didn’t just beat the record-holding Porsche 911 GT2 RS Manthey, it obliterated it by more than 8 seconds.
It’s been offered for sale via. Dubai-based website First Motors for a whopping 20 million United Emirates Dirham (AUD$8 Million) or roughly double the original $4 Million asking price. The sale listing states the car has 0 kilometres on the clock, which seems impossible but isn’t something overseas buyers will have to worry about as it’s not legal to drive on roads in Australia, the United States, Canada, and other jurisdictions due to local emissions regulations.
While it’s a stunner from the outside, the entire car is designed with function in mind. Active, hydraulically controlled aerodynamics consist of active flaps on the front diffuser, rear wing, and louvres at the front axle. Just like the Mercedes Formula 1 racecar, the Mercedes-AMG ONE has a functional “Race DRS” (Drag Reduction System) that can be activated at the touch of a button, reducing downforce by 20 per cent.
The interior follows suit with “no styling” being the inspiration inside this two-seater cabin. You’ll find such ‘comfort’ features as air conditioning and electric windows, an adjustable pedal box and steering wheel, and a double-nozzle ventilation unit suspended under the centre infotainment screen.
