What you’re looking at is the powertrain for the utterly insane Mercedes-AMG Project One hyper-ultra-super-mega-car—the $2.9 million car so bonkers, they’re essentially stuffing a lightly detuned Formula One engine in it. Neat.
Squint, and have your finger hovering over the “pause” button, for this Mercedes is fast and will streak by you before you even know it.
We still don’t know what the Mercedes-AMG hypercar will look like, but we’re slowly learning more about its impressive features—a Formula One powertrain, a supposed 1,000 horsepower and an engine that revs to 11,000 RPM. But guess what! For the mere $3 million it costs, the engine will only last 31,000 miles.
We had a profile of the thing back in September and no name. Now we have a rear end and a name. Progress!
According to reports, two men robbed a member of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes AMG F1 team at gunpoint prior to this weekend’s Formula One Mexican Grand Prix. The robbery occurred while in stationary traffic on Wednesday, and the team member chose to remain in Mexico for the race weekend.
On this blog, we’re big fans of showing you cars that you could one day buy testing at the Nürburgring in Germany. If you haven’t noticed, we really like when they’re fast. That being said, here’s a video of what appears to be the new Mercedes-AMG C63 R out there tearing things up. It looks pretty good, too.
Looks like it’s happening: Mercedes just confirmed that it will build the AMG F1 hypercar today during a press conference at the Paris Motor Show. The Germans are saying it will actually be inspired by Formula One, and that it’s not just some marketing bullcrap. In fact, they’re saying it will use the whole powertrain…
If, for some unholy reason, you weren’t too flummoxed by the amazing Aston Martin and Red Bull Formula One-inspired hypercar project with a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio, Mercedes-AMG is developing a F1-inspired hypercar project with a one-to-one power-to-weight ratio, too.
On the surface, Mercedes’ AMG division is still doing the same thing it has always done: sell the fastest and most expensive Mercedes available. But look a little deeper and you’ll see that something has changed.
If you’re ready to test the elasticity of your face and the strength of your lungs, Cigarette Racing’s 41' SD GT3, and its twin Mercury Marine engines putting out 2200 horsepower, are happy to oblige.
Mercedes AMG driver Nico Rosberg won his second Brazilian Grand Prix in a row on Sunday, finishing a whole 7.7 seconds ahead of teammate and Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton. For those wondering, Hamilton did show up for the top-three photo this time around.
The Brazilian Grand Prix qualifying results look about like everyone expected them to, with Nico Rosberg, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel topping the charts. But no one would know by just looking at the top-three (or two-ish?) photo after qualifying, because Hamilton skipped out on it.
While Formula One Mercedes AMG teammates Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are busy throwing hats at each other and upping their rivalry on track, boss Toto Wolff is basically sitting back to enjoy the show.
The Mercedes-AMG GT isn’t a Porsche 911, but it is a damn fine sports car. And just look at it. It’s absolutely stunning. What do you need to know before you buy an AMG GT? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in our Buyer’s Guide.
I have a theory why people who don’t really even care about speed are buying some of the fastest cars in the world.
Mercedes-AMG is promising something fast is coming. Based on the soundtrack and basic common sense, that something will have a V8.
