Racing games give players a new perspective that is not always available to drivers in the real world. The third-person view behind the car is a staple of the genre, giving racers a wider view of the track and their competitors. A new video recreates this perspective, draping the camera on the back of the Mercedes-AMG One. It highlights the stunning rear end of the supercar and captures the guttural tone of its exhaust.
Powering the AMG One is a Formula One-derived 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine paired with four electric motors. Total system output is 1,049 horsepower (782 kilowatts). It can propel the supercar up to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 2.9 seconds. The 124 mph (200 kph) dash takes 7.0 seconds, reaching 219 mph (352 kph).
Mercedes first revealed the One at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, calling it Project One. It wasn’t until June 2022 that the production version was finally revealed, and deliveries to new customers started last month. Production began in August at AMG’s Coventry, UK facility, with more than 50 people involved in assembling it. AMG teamed up with Multimatic to build a special factory for the supercar. The owner takes delivery at AMG’s Affalterbach, Germany headquarters.
The vehicle encountered several hurdles during its development which delayed its launch. Europe is imposing stricter emission standards, requirements that changed the development of One. The stricter Euro 6 standards are forcing automakers to add gasoline particulate filters to engines, which can affect their output. Thankfully not, allowing the supercar to offer more than 1,000 hp while meeting new regulations.
It’s unclear who owned the first AMG One, but there’s no shortage of high-profile names rumored to be getting one. The automaker plans to produce just 275 examples of the One, with the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Mark Wahlberg and Manny Khoshbin allegedly on the list to receive one. With the supercar finally reaching customers, we’ll likely see more of AMG Ones in the real world in the coming months.
