THE ONE TO RULE THEM ALL

AMG’s foundation stone was laid back in June 1967. To mark the 55th anniversary of the performance and sports car brand, the production version of the Mercedes-AMG ONE celebrated its world premiere at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this past June. 

The two-seater super sports car brings the world’s most modern and efficient Formula 1 hybrid drive technology from the race track to the road for the first time. The unique hypercar inspires not only with its E Performance Formula 1 hybrid drive but also with other motorsport technology. This ranges from the carbon-fibre monocoque and carbon-fibre body to the load-bearing engine/transmission unit, active aerodynamics and the push-rod suspension.

With its complex technology, the ONE offers even more than a Formula 1 racing car, like the AMG Performance 4MATIC+ fully variable all-wheel drive with hybrid-driven rear axle and electrically driven front axle with torque vectoring. It can also drive using only the electric motors courtesy of an 8.4 kWh battery sufficient for a purely electric range of 18.1 km. 

The performance hybrid produces a total output of 782 kW from one combustion engine and four electric motors, with a top speed capped at 352 km/h. Impressive acceleration values are possible with a special Race Start function, which enables a sprint from standstill to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds, hitting the 200 km/h mark in just 7.0 seconds, and the 300 km/h mark in 15.6 seconds.
