Mercedes AMG One

Mercedes-AMG One broke a new track record at this famous track

The One is number one.

Mercedes-AMG’s Formula 1-based supercar has broken the production car record at Germany’s Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Automakers use the circuit’s winding, rough, and almost 13-mile-long length as a benchmark to measure the performance of their sports cars.

The $2.7 Million One lapped the damp track in just 6 minutes, 35.183 seconds. This beats the 8-second-old Porsche 911 GT2 RS record.

Maro Engel, a German driver in touring car racing, was at the wheel of the record and broke it twice in one day.

Engel stated, “That was truly an unforgettable experience.”

“I didn’t think we would be capable of setting such a lap time in these conditions. It hadn’t dried completely in some areas so it was difficult to navigate.

Although the One is shaped like a Le Man’s racer it is powered by a Mercedes-AMG Formula One car’s V6-based hybrid powertrain.

It features an electrically driven turbocharger, an electric engine between the V6 motor and the seven-speed transmission, as well as two additional electric motors driving its wheels. This makes it the most powerful Mercedes-Benz model.

Active aerodynamics is also available, including movable rear wings and gill-like vents at the front fenders. This improves its handling.

Mercedes-AMG claims that the car can reach speeds of 186 mph in just 15.6 seconds, and a maximum speed of 219 miles per hour.

Unfortunately, the vehicle is not street-legal in America. However, all 275 units that were built to be sold worldwide have been sold.
