Mercedes-AMG Aiming For Performance And Efficiency



Not only is Mercedes-AMG stuffing its F1 technology into a street legal hypercar, they plan to make it the most efficient model in the segment.

“To put it in just one sentence: outstanding performance with more than impressive efficiency,” chief executive of AMG, Tobias Moers told Car and Driver. “That’s the main goal, the main target.”

The upcoming F1-powered beast is unnamed for now, but we can expect the AMG team to squeeze out as much power as regulations allow whilst achieving 40 percent thermal efficiency. 40% may not be all that amazing when compared to hybrids like the Hyundai Ioniq and Toyota Prius, but the Mercedes-AMG hypercar is trying to hit that percentage with a 1.6-liter V6 engine that is capable of pushing out 1000-hp and has a redline above 10,000 rpm.

With that much power and the amount of Formula 1 technology it’s packing, the unnamed vehicle essentially a street legal F1 car. “Every component we’re going to use out of Formula 1; that means an electric turbo, electric motors, the combustion engine, and even the battery—we’re going to use the same battery cell,” said Moers.

Expected to arrive by 2019, Mercedes-AMG is planning to sell only a handful of these flagship cars, more than 100 and less than 500 vehicles will be produced. Each one will cost buyers a pretty penny as it could cost around $2 million each.
