The Mercedes-AMG Project one hypercar will overcome barriers by being the first company to use thoroughbred Formula 1 technology on public roads. Particularly noteworthy is the 1.6-liter V6 turbo engine in combination with electric motors, which enable an output of up to 1,000 hp. The high-performance vehicle is expected to be priced at $ 3 million.
While the hypercar definitely had car enthusiasts, here we have some drawbacks that we projected based on what AMG CEO Tobias Moers said and other reliable sources:
1. F1-like maintenance
Moers estimated that the AMG hypercar would need engine maintenance once it has reached 31,000 kilometers or 50,000 km. Hence, buyers of the car are advised to get that too Additional guarantee from AMG.
2. Might not be street legal in China
Moers confirmed that the Project One hypercar will be approved for road traffic in many countries. However, this is not permitted on China’s public roads due to regulatory hurdles.
3. Noisy gasoline engines
The hypercar can drive noiselessly in fully electric mode. On the other hand, the question arises as to how AMG will comply with noise and emissions laws when the car’s powerful gasoline engine is active. According to engine The Mercedes F1 car currently idles from 3,500 to 4,000 rpm, which is far from the 1,100 rpm allowable on most public roads.
4. Low electric range
Despite the electric motors built into the car, it only has a purely electric range of 25 km. That’s definitely very low compared to most recently released electric cars. AMG recalled that the upcoming hypercar’s electric motors will mainly focus on increasing overall performance when using its hybrid system.
