In Mercedes-AMG will cook something: supercar, with a 1,300-HP hybrid, and for 2017

Yes, Mercedes-AMG is cooking something big for a long time and heard rumors about a new model 100% AMG destined to beat the trio of reference: McLaren P1, LaFerrari and Porsche 918 Spyder. In the era of reinvention, Mercedes-AMG is known to have the technology and capacity to to manufacture a supercar hybrid that feels chair, as well as being the ideal time now that models like the Koenigsegg One:1 and the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 are daring to go much further.


Image-level and technological capacity, Mercedes-AMG is the best time to engage in a project of this size

At GTSpirit have had access to first-hand information about a project developed by Mercedes-AMG with the code R50. This project, which would have your release date for 2017, it would be a supercar with around 1,300 HP power and a hybrid configuration based on the technology employed by Mercedes-AMG Formula 1, and some solutions quite novel in the mark such as the use of a train rear-directional – equipped on the Mercedes-AMG GT-R – or a front end with a propulsion 100% electric.

And what is the objective of Mercedes-AMG with this project? Dare with the most difficult one yet, make a racing car with homologation for street as raised by the Aston Martin AM-RB 001 and picking up the baton from models such as the iconic Mercedes CLK GTR. If Aston Martin can dare to challenge even the LMP1 that will compete in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, it seems that Mercedes-AMG does not want to miss the opportunity of accepting the challenge and demonstrate its technological capacity to achieve this.

Although there is very little information provided by the time, the keys of this project supercar also find the in order to offer a car with a weight/power ratio of 1 to 1, another of the points that most are looking for the best sports of the time. But how much will it cost the Mercedes-AMG R50? With small-scale production and very limited, each one of the cars that are manufactured could be around easily between 2 and 3 million euros.
