Mercedes-AMG One: WhereWhere Power Meets Elegance
The Mercedes-AMG One (R50, stylized as ONE) is an upcoming limited-production plug-in hybrid sports car manufactured by Mercedes-AMG, featuring Formula One-derived technology. It was unveiled at the 2017 International Motor Show Germany by Formula One driver Sir Lewis Hamilton and Head of Mercedes-Benz Dieter Zetsche. The production of the car is planned to be 275 units, and it has been announced that production will not be increased beyond these 275 units to preserve the exclusivity of the car. The AMG One is being shown alongside Hamilton’s 2020-spec F1 car, although it would’ve probably been more fitting to show the championship-winning car from 2015. That’s because the hypercar uses a variation of the hybrid 1.6-liter V6 that powered the Mercedes F1 W07 Hybrid racer. Revving up to 11,000 rpm, the combustion engine works with four electric motors, pushing the car to speeds exceeding 217 mph (350 km/h).
The powertrain of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is expected to be rated at 475–775 kW (646–1,054 PS; 637–1,039 hp) through a hybrid drivetrain that shares many features with modern Formula One cars. The car has five motors with different functions on board: one internal combustion engine (ICE) and four electric motors.

The Mercedes-AMG ONE will utilize a modified 1.6-liter turbocharged 90-degree V6 engine from the Mercedes-AMG F1 W07 F1 car, as confirmed by Mercedes-AMG board member Ola Källenius. Modifications will be done to the engine due to the engine’s illegality in RPM idle and redline. The head of Mercedes-AMG, Tobias Moers, states that the engine will be at 1,280 rpm when idle, and at 11,000 rpm when at its redline limit. However, the engine will only last for 50,000 km (31,000 mi), and the owners will have to return their cars for engine refurbishment. The ICE produces 558 kW (759 PS; 748 hp), with torque figures still unknown.
The ICE will work in conjunction with four electric motors: a 120 kW (163 PS; 161 hp) Motor Generator Unit-Kinetic (MGU-K) coupled to the crankshaft, a 90 kW (122 PS; 121 hp) Motor Generator Unit-Heat (MGU-H) coupled to the turbocharger, and two 120 kW (163 PS; 161 hp) electric motors at the front axle. The MGU-K and MGU-H are Formula One-style motors responsible for recovering energy and improving efficiency during the operation of the car. More specifically, the MGU-K serves to generate electricity during braking, while the MGU-H serves to eliminate turbocharger lag and improve throttle response by keeping the turbine spinning at high speeds. The final two electric motors drive the front wheels to allow for an all-wheel-drive drivetrain, and the sum of these four electric motors will contribute 450 kW (612 PS; 603 hp) effective power to the total power output figure of the Project One.

The transmission will be an 8-speed single-clutch automated manual transmission variant (which is actually a similar type of transmission used in modern Formula 1 cars), and it will deliver the bulk of the engine power and torque to the rear wheels. The use of a single-clutch over a dual-clutch transmission was due to AMG’s engineers wanting to keep the car light and due to concerns over the dual-clutch’s ability to handle the high-revving V6 ICE.
The Project One has wheels made of aluminum alloy and carbon fiber with diameters of 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear with center-lock wheel nuts. The tires are Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2s with codes of 285/35 ZR 19 for the front and 335/30 ZR 20 for the rear. The brakes are ventilated carbon-ceramic discs.

The interior is mostly minimalist and driver-focused, continuing the Formula One theme of the Project One. This includes a Formula One-style steering wheel and pedals, and a driver-oriented central infotainment screen. There are some traditional luxury features in the interior, notably Napa leather and hand stitching on the bucket seats.
The body will be made entirely of carbon fiber in line with its F1 counterpart, resulting in a final estimated curb weight of around 1,200–1,300 kg (2,646–2,866 lb).
