Mercedes AMG One 2021
The Mercedes-AMG 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 Lewis Hamilton, who worked on the development of the car, and Head of Mercedes-Benz Dieter Zetsche.
The production of the car is planned to be 275 units at a price of US$2.72 million per unit, all of which have been already sold. Mercedes-AMG received orders for four times the production amount, but have stated that production will not be increased from the planned 275 units, in order to maintain the exclusivity of the car.
Currently, the car is still at the concept state, since it has not reached homologation regulations yet.
The official name of the car was changed from "Project One" to simply "One", dropping the "Project" name.
The cars will be evaluated on their performance, durability, and ability in Mercedes-Benz's proving grounds and on racing circuits. The Head of Mercedes-AMG, Tobias Moers also states that when "the time is right", Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team driver Lewis Hamilton, who has worked on the development of the car, will test the prototypes.
The powertrain of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is expected to be rated at 775–918 kW (1,054–1,248 PS; 1,039–1,231 hp) through a hybrid drivetrain that shares many features with modern Formula One cars. The car has five motors with different functions onboard: one internal combustion engine (ICE) and four electric motors.
The Mercedes-AMG ONE will utilise a modified 1.6-litre turbocharged 90-degree V6 engine from the Mercedes-AMG F1 W07 F1 car, running at max 11.000 rpm. Modifications will be done to the engine due to the engine's illegality in RPM idle and redline.
The transmission will be an 8-speed single-clutch automated manual variant, and delivers the bulk of the engine power to the rear wheels.
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.
The exterior of the car is designed primarily for aerodynamics, although it still maintains a profile reminiscent to a road legal car. The notable aerodynamic features include the large front air inlets, the roof-mounted air intake and the large aerodynamic fin extending down the back half of the car.
The chassis is built around Mercedes-AMG's F1 W07 Formula One car. The body will be made entirely of carbon fibre to reduce weight, resulting in a final estimated kerb weight of around 1,200–1,300 kg (2,646–2,866 lb).
Due to problems with recasting the mighty 1.6-liter V6 for production duty, client deliveries will be delayed to 2021.

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
