Time ago we told you about that Mercedes-AMG was preparing a hybrid supercar that would rival the trio formed by Ferrari LaFerrari, P1 McLaren and Porsche 918 Spyder. At the last Paris show we could see his silhouette and now from CES in Las Vegas its first image comes. It’s a teaser and doesn’t show too much detail, but it makes us think that this new model is much closer.
Although there is nothing confirmed, you may receive the name of Mercedes-AMG R50, since this 2017 marks the 50 anniversary of the sports division. They promised that it would be a Formula 1 Street and that it seems judging by forms of his behind. It stands out for its width and high-waisted, but do not let us see the rear diffuser. Yes we appreciate the input of air in the ceiling and the absence of rear window, so instead two air intakes NACA type.
Is speaks of that this model will take the same engine V6 turbo of 1.6 liters that uses the single-seater W07 of Mercedes-AMG in the Formula 1. Being hybrid will come backed by a pair of electric motors and altogether be reached a power higher than the 1,000 HP. Is will seat on a monocoque of fibre of carbon and will highlight by its worked aerodynamics and by a weight very reduced on them 1,000 kg.
Mercedes-AMG R50 will arrive in a very limited edition, which could be between 200 and 300 units. So it will be a very exclusive and affordable copy of very few. Your price without taxes will be approximately 2 million euros, for what in Europe could cost 2.4 million euros. We still don’t know when it will be presented, but it is possible to make its debut in September at the Frankfurt Motor Show.
