some time Ago we talked to you about that Mercedes-AMG is preparing a supercar hybrid that would rival the trio of the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. In the past Hall of Paris as we could see its silhouette, and now from the CES in Las Vegas we arrive at your first image. This is a teaser and does not show too many details, but it makes us think that this new model is much closer to.
Although there is nothing confirmed, you could receive the name of Mercedes-AMG R50, since this 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the division sports. They promised that it would be a Formula 1 street, and that seems to judging by the forms of your behind. Stands out for its width, and waist-high, but do not let us see the rear diffuser. We do appreciate the air inlet on the roof and the absence of rear window, for in its place two air intakes type NACA.
there Is talk that this model will bear the same engine V6 turbo 1.6-litre that uses the single-seater W07 Mercedes-AMG in Formula 1. The hybrid being will come supported by a pair of electric motors and together will reach a power over 1,000 HP. Will settle on a carbon-fibre monocoque and will stand out because of their elaborate aerodynamics and a very limited weight around 1,000 kg.
The Mercedes-AMG R50 will arrive in a spin, quite limited, that could be between 200 and 300 units. Therefore, it will be a copy very exclusive and within the reach of very few. Your price without taxes will be about 2 million euros, which in Europe could cost 2.4 million. We still don’t know when it will be presented, but it is possible that his debut is in September in the iaa.
