Mercedes-AMG Project One Hybrid Tech Coming To Series Models Next Decade

Some of the hybrid technology from the Mercedes-AMG Project One will find its way into series production models by 2020 or 2021, the company has confirmed.

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers has failed to specify exactly which components from the F1-powered hypercar will make their way into lesser models. With that being said, it is unlikely to be the 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine but instead, a similar setup consisting of four electric motors, Autocar suggests.

To create the Project One, Mercedes-AMG has installed one electric motor to drive the turbocharger while a second motor is incorporated into the driveshaft. The third and fourth electric motors sit at the front axle, giving the hybrid hypercar all-wheel drive.

Final specifications for the Project One have yet to be announced as the German marque still has more than 12 months of development left. With that being said, a horsepower figure in the four-figure range is inevitable. Additionally, the hypercar will be capable of sprinting from 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in six seconds flat. A top speed exceeding 218 mph (350 km/h) has also been quoted.

Mercedes is said to be toying with the idea of taking the Project One to the Nurburgring in an attempt to set a new production car lap record.

    So I’m guessing any new AMG models like the E53 for example. That would be my first guess. Although non-AMG models would definitely be the more sensible route which is probably what will happen.

    That will begin with the 73 hybrid series scheduled for the next generation S-class and GLS and the lastest G-class.
    This powertrain was teased on the 4 door AMG GT concept for a total output of 816 metric hp.
    The 73 will replace the 65 models with their outdated and forgotten V12 designed 20 years ago.
    And that’s a good thing because finally a more exclusive 73 models above the 63 has something special to bring to the rest of the line-up from the Project One. I hope they’ll make it more exclusive and precious than the 63 and keep making it in the S-class coupe and cabriolet.
