Default Mercedes-AMG hypercar revealed

Mercedes-AMG hypercar revealed in preview image

Mercedes-AMG's hypercar will have 1000bhp and challenge the Aston Martin AM-RB 001

Mercedes-AMG's first hypercar has been previewed in a teaser image shown at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

The image was accompanied by the strapline 'Creating benchmark driving pleasure', suggesting that the new model, which will develop around 1000bhp, will focus on driver enjoyment rather than lap times. Despite this, it will be by far the highest-performance Mercedes-AMG car yet built.

This first look at the car reveals a large roof scoop and louvre vents on the rear upper panel, confirming that it will be mid-engined. A wide stance is also evident, but no other details are visible.

Production of the hypercar will be limited to between 200 and 300 units, and a price of 3 million has been suggested. It has been confirmed that it will be powered by a Mercedes F1 hybrid-derived powertrain, but it's not known how or even if it will be changed for the road car. Like the F1 engines, the road car's unit wil be engineered at Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth, Northamptonshire.

The car is likely to use an all-carbonfibre construction, with an F1-style carbonfibre monocoque and F1-derived performance technology. The car's main rival, the forthcoming Aston Martin AM-RB 001, will also feature F1-derived tech and construction.

Not sure if any potential buyer could enjoy the sound of a F-1 style V6 at that price, 1000hp or not.

McLaren built their super/hyper car. Ferrari has their car. RedBull is partnered with Aston to build one. Mercedes is teasing / releasing one. When do we get to see the Force India, Sauber, and Williams super/hyper cars?

Being that it's a mock-up to show off the driveline technology it's entirely possible that they just pulled parts out of a bin and tossed them together. On the other hand it's also possible that a multi-time consecutive F1 winning manufacturer knows more about their car and its braking needs than the internet does.

It could very well be intentional, so people get annoyed and option on a $50k brake upgrade package. Mercedes' version of the Porsche tax.

Nah, AMG gets owners with the extra service charges, see SLR ownership.

Speaking of AMG F1 tech on road cars

It's got a little 918 going on. Not bad, the exterior looks nice...then I saw the stupid iPad smashed into the dash.

Why Mercedes? Why?

Why is it so hard to make an interior look decent... Pagani has shown you it is perfectly possible.
