Mercedes-AMG One will be produced

About five years ago, Mercedes-AMG’s Project One concept was unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show. Currently, the Mercedes-AMG One, an F1-engined hypercar, will be seen on the road. Only 275 units will be produced worldwide. And the turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 gasoline engine has taken so long to meet the regulations.

The cars are sold in UK, Hybrid powertrains are developed at AMG’s plant in Coventry, the Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains division. These cars are at the heart of F1, and AMG teamed up with Multimatic to launch the Mercedes-AMG One. This car with 1,049 horsepower was carefully packed with big trucks and transported to Germany. It was delivered to the AMG headquarters in Affalterbach. Here, from AMG One, technical experts will explain about the vehicle and hand it over to the owners.

All-Wheel-Drive Machine

The all-wheel-drive machine in this car is quite complex, and while the combustion engine can rev up to 11,000 rpm, it still meets Euro 6 emissions regulations. And the single-turbo V6 produces up to 566 horsepower at 1,200 rpm, significantly lower than an F1 car’s engine at 5,000 rpm. Although this is the biggest headache, AMG has 3, in order to pass emissions tests on the road.

So, I was able to reduce it to 800 rpm. The four electric motors at each front wheel generate a combined 322 hp. The third e-motor sends 161 hp to the crankshaft and connects to a turbocharger to add 121 hp to the fourth linked. It has an 8.4-kWh lithium-ion battery pack with enough juice for an electric range of up to 11 miles (18 km), and a specially designed seven-speed automated manual transmission.

0 to 62 mph can be reached in 2.9 seconds and 124 mph in 7 seconds. An hour can drive up to 219 mph (352 km/h). So, there is no doubt that this is an amazing car. The price of this car, which will soon reach its owners, is estimated to be $2.4 million.

Kamolvattanavith grew up in Bangkok, Thailand, in a conservative household. Her mother was an investor, while her father managed a golf course and factory. Despite the family’s physical closeness, Kamolvattanavith always felt emotionally detached from her parents. “There was distance between us. I didn’t understand them, they didn’t understand me,” she says. “They didn’t believe that women should be as vocal as men or have as much social power as men, and that was something that really bothered me.” More troubling, it was something that played out in Kamolvattanavith’s household quite often. “My opinions and thoughts – anything I was saying – were being repressed because of our differences in views,” the Thai says. “I was the girl with a lot of opinions and a lot of things to say. I was very vocal, especially about my thoughts, even if they went against the grain.” Because of that family dynamic, Kamolvattanavith wanted out. So in middle school, she began plotting a way to study at the next level in the United States. However, there was one thing standing in the way of her ambitions – money. Around the same time that Kamolvattanavith was planning her move to the U.S., her family experienced financial hardship. “We ended up losing a significant amount of money with a business decision [my parents] made, and that was a financial turning point for us,” she recalls. “My parents had to start a new business, because they really had to support the family and carry on this financial burden. They had to start something fresh so they could pay off everything and recover financially.” Still, the young Thai wouldn’t let that stop her. She began to apply to schools on her own and when accepted, the future investigative journalist asked an uncle to help cover the expenses. “I think he was more understanding. He was the most encouraging out of everyone. He saw the value I could gain by leaving home. He also helped convince my parents,” she says.
