Newest Hypercar Mercedes-AMG Project ONE

The Mercedes-AMG ‘Project One’ hypercar makes its world première at the International Motor Show 2017 (IAA) in Frankfurt. The two-seater supersports show car brings the very latest and efficient, Formula One hybrid technology from the race track to the road. This high-performance hybrid is said to produce over 1,000 hp and reach top speeds beyond 350 km/h (217 mph). For the first time a hypercar combines outstanding race track performance and day-to-day suitable Formula One hybrid technology with exemplary efficiency. The German-automaker’s development work was carried out in close cooperation with F1 experts at Mercedes-AMG.

Newest Mercedes-AMG Marauder Boat With Shocking 3,100 hp

Cigarette Racing and Mercedes’ AMG branch have been collaborating for a decade now. The Mercedes-AMG Marauder Boat is the latest fruit of the successful partnership. A pair of Mercury Racing 1550/1350 engines powers the vessel, letting the pilot switch between 3,100 hp and 2,700 hp output just by swapping key fobs. Copious use of carbon fiber allows the 50-foot craft to shed over 1,300 pounds compared to a standard build, and the Green Hell Magno details help establish the connection between the boat and its inspiration, the Mercedes-AMG GT R.

New Mercedes AMG GT Roadster

Mercedes is launching a pair of new open-top versions of its AMG GT sports car, continuing its challenge to the Porsche 911. The base model, the AMG GT Roadster, comes with 469 horsepower (a modest jump from the 456 hp made by the base AMG GT coupe) and 465 lb-ft of torque from a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V8 – that’s enough to get the car from 0–60 mph in 3.9 seconds and up to a top speed of 188 mph. For those who want something a little bit more “turned-up-to-eleven,” Mercedes also has the AMG GT C Roadster, which gets more output and torque (550 horsepower and 502 lb-ft) as well as a wider rear end that makes room for larger wheels and an active rear axle steering system brought over from the AMG GT R that lets the rear wheels turn in the opposite direction to the front. According to the Mercedes press release, it gives “significantly higher agility and increased driving pleasure with less steering input” – though the more usable benefit is a reduced turning circle. Both convertibles have a fabric roof (available in black, beige, and a gorgeous red) that can open or close in around 11 seconds and it can do it while the car is going 30 miles per hour. The two AMG GT Roadsters will arrive in dealers in the fall of 2017. Pricing was not disclosed.

2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S by Mansory

The aftermarket specialists at Mansory have developed this outrageous wide bodywork version of the Mercedes-AMG GT S, which was first introduced at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. The designers from Mansory focused on the rear end of the GT, where they’ve added a massive rear wing which enhances this supercar’s aggressive appearance and helps it get everyone’s attention, while improving the air flow as well. The powerful rear wing and the remodeled rear spoiler seem to match the existing bodywork design perfectly, with that ruby red shade complementing carbon fiber in a unique manner.

This supercar now benefits from an astonishing output of 730 horsepower, which is 217 hp more than the standard model, which comes with 503 hp. That’s more than enough to take this supercar from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and help it max out at 330 km/h. Inside the cabin, there’s a new control center, that blends functionality and comfort with a new sports steering wheel featuring a carbon inlay, new aluminum pedals and the luxurious hand-crafted elements and leather touches all around the cockpit, which add to the high-quality builds that Mansory is well-known for.

Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo

To honor the 15th anniversary of the record breaking Gran Turismo gaming series, its creator, Kazunori Yamauchi, asked several leading automotive makers and design agencies worldwide to create their version of future vehicles. Sporting the traditional long-hood, short rear deck shape of our favorite sports cars, the Vision Gran Turismo looks like something straight out of the future with features like a LED encrusted front grille and 8-tailpipe exhaust system built right into the rear bumper of the car. Under the hood lies an AMG sourced V8 bi-turbo engine pumping out roughly 580 horsepower along with 590 lb-ft of torque. Utilizing an aluminum space-frame body paired with carbon fiber parts, this beauty tips the scales at 1,385 kilograms. Mercedes-Benz AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept will be a part of the initial GT6 release with other designs introduced over time via online updates. A 1:1-scale model of the Mercedes-AMG Vision Gran Turismo will be unveiled at the opening of the new Mercedes-Benz Research & Development Center in California this week, but unfortunately this design looks set to remain a virtual reality.
