CES 2017:  Upcoming Mercedes-AMG hypercar teased

Showcasing its technological potential in the performance division, Mercedes-AMG has teased its upcoming hypercar which marks the AMG’s 50th anniversary. The performance beast in production form will be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show which is due to be held in September 2017.

Under the hood, it is believed that Mercedes-AMG might power the upcoming beast with a 1.6 liters, V6, turbo which produces around 986bhp of power and will be based on F1 racecar’s Hybrid Power Unit. To handle high speeds and corners comfortably, the vehicle will share design elements from the Formula 1 to create more downforce. Right from suspension to the external lightweight body shell, the upcoming vehicle will carry most of the technology from the F1 racing division along with the company’s radar-based system.

Along with impressive performance figures, the new upcoming AMG hypercar will be loaded with creaturely comforts such electrically adjustable seats, large touchscreen infotainment system and premium upholstery. Additionally, in terms of safety, the vehicle will be loaded with features such as multiple airbags, ABS with EBD and electronic speed restrictor.

Mercedes-AMG might produce approximately 250 to 300 units of the hypercar, thereby offering a chance only to a handful to own it. Moreover, all the units will be sold out even before it has been officially unveiled. Reports suggest that the Mercedes-AMG hypercar will be priced around 2 million Euros (Approx. Rs 14.40 Crore) excluding tax.
