The hybrid powertrain produces upwards of 1000 BHP and is the closest to a street-legal F1 race car.
The F1-engine-powered Mercedes-AMG One has set a new lap record at the Nurburgring Nordschleife. The record lap, according to Mercedes, was completed on 28th October 2022.
The AMG One hypercar was piloted by Maro Engel, a Nurburgring 24-hour winner & DTM competitor. Engel set a blistering fast time of 6:35.183, making the AMG One the fastest production car around the famous track. The AMG One beat the previous lap record set by a Porsche 911 GT2 RS Manthey by nearly 8 seconds in 2021. The lap time of the AMG One was following the new official standard, which was changed recently to utilise the same start/finish line in section T13 of the track.
The Mercedes-AMG One hypercar is powered by a 1.6-litre V6 engine revving up to 11,000 rpm. This is mated to four electric motors, two at the front, one to the engine and another to the turbocharger. The hybrid powertrain produces upwards of 1000 BHP and is the closest to a street-legal F1 race car.
