The street supercar with the F1 engine is built like this

There will only be 275 units of Mercedes-AMG One. These are handcrafted in England but delivered to their owners in Germany

Although it is a Mercedes, AMG One It is not made or manufactured in Germany, but in England, just like the cars that Lewis Hamilton and George Russell drive in the Formula 1 World Championship. And it’s not a coincidence but a reason, because It’s the most extreme road car Mercedes has ever built and it has a direct relationship to the brand’s most successful racing car of all time, historically recognized as “Silver Arrow.”

The project is so ambitious that Ola Kalenius, CEO of Mercedes, said last May that the prototype had already been completed and that production would begin soon, that “We’ll be drunk when we say yes.”

What is special about this car? Nothing more and nothing less Its power plant, as it is not an engine, but a combination of thermal and electric propulsion, is similar to that used six times by Hamilton and once by Nico Rosberg to win the Formula World Championship. 1 between 2014 and 2020. was used for.

Although it may seem unrealistic, this small heat engine is capable of generating 670 hp of power at 11,000 rpm.

There is only one thermal engine, the same 1.6 liter V6 of the racing cars which develops 670 CV of power. But instead of one electric motor, there are four with which the AMG One is equipped. Two are linked directly to the turbo and the other two are linked to the front wheels to generate all-wheel drive. With this, the total power of the vehicle amounts to 1,063 hp and 11,000 rpm. And the reason why the car is made in England is precisely because the engines come from the factory Brixworthwhere F1 is assembled.

the factory they equipped Multimatic, the company Mercedes partnered with to produce this model far east on the road CoventryBut The 275 AMGs that will roll off the production line will be delivered to Germany. Despite its price, 2.7 million eurosall models already sold out before you begin your assembly.

When complete, the engine leaves the F1 factory in Brixworth for Coventry, where it is assembled into the car.

The manufacturing process of each AMG One is practically done by hand, It is carried out by 50 people and includes a production cycle of 16 workstations which can be summarized in 12 different stages.

In the first 4, the mechanical parts are assembled, Installation of all low voltage components and necessary powertrain components, which Includes total electrical installation.

One of the first stages of construction is to place the mechanical parts and complete the electrical and electronic installation.

Stations 5 and 6 are where the high voltage battery is involved and make high voltage connections, performance testing of heat engines and electric motors, That is, already at this time the first start of the vehicle is carried out.

station 7 is where The interior of the cabin or passenger compartment.

At stations 8 to 10, body exteriors and doors are placed. Starting with the monocoque bonnet, then the doors and bumpers and finally the aerodynamic appendages.

at station 11 wheels and flat bottom.

12 checks and adjusts the wheels and The lights are on.

station 13 is dynamicSince then, the car is approaching roller dynamometer try everything driving style Vehicle.

station 14 is built on tests conocidos como NVH (noise, vibration and stiffness) And all necessary adjustments are made.

Once mechanically assembled, three stations are achieved which include body panels, doors, bumpers and upper aerodynamic parts.

Station 15 is dedicated to testing the assembled car exposed to heavy artificial rain To test the tightness of the cabin and parts such as lights and electric fields.

And finally, The classic and ultimate position on a production line, number 16, is the one inside the brightly lit booth that requires visual inspection. Functional testing of all surfaces and components.

Once assembled, each AMG One undergoes heavy rain and roller dynamometer testing to verify watertightness and watertightness.

During all these phases, Depending on the customization of each vehicle, more time is possible, Either inside, special at station 7 or elsewhere. If it’s painting, it doesn’t take longer than usual, because the panels are already arriving on the assembly line with their final finish.

Once finished, Each car is taken for a circuit test near Coventry Silver, and after being checked in external dynamic tests, is carefully packed and loaded onto a truck bound for Affalterbach in Germany, Where it will be delivered to its owner.
