Mercedes-Benz Sets Its Sights On Designing A Hypercar

January 26th, 2017 by

When you hear Mercedes-Benz mentioned, the first quality that likely comes to mind is luxury. The S-Class is the best selling luxury sedan on the market, thanks to its incredibly detailed interior and driving performance. But did you know of the company’s AMG performance division, that is constantly looking for better ways to improve engine power and responsiveness? In fact, Mercedes-Benz recently announced a hybrid “hypercar” that has been nicknamed Project One.


So what exactly is a hypercar? A #hypercar is a car that is capable of hitting a peak horsepower of 1000, which is incredibly difficult given that high end sports cars only reach around 500 horsepower. Very few automakers have even produced such a car, which include the Porsche 918, McLaren P1 and the Ferrari LaFerrari. At the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, Mercedes-Benz revealed their first prototype that can join this elite club. The most interesting aspect of the Mercedes-Benz model however is that it will be a hybrid hypercar, which has never been done before. This will improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions when the car isn’t running at full capacity.


While the Project One will only sell a limited number of vehicles, it embodies the push for greater engine power that Mercedes-Benz has been implementing on all its cars. Even the S-Class has a powerful 449-hp engine that can rapidly accelerate the car. This is because luxury isn’t just about the look or the premium features. It’s about creating a better and more enjoyable driving experience as a whole.
