MERCEDES-Benz has harnessed its success from Formula One to create the £2.2 million AMG ONE hypercar.

Billed as “an F1 car for the road”, the German premium brand’s creation delivers 1,069PS to all four wheels from a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 petrol engine and four electric motors powered by an 8.4kWh battery.

It can reach 219mph and can accelerate from 0-62mph in less than three seconds.

Philipp Schiemer, chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG, said: “The immense technical challenges of making a modern Formula 1 powertrain suitable for everyday road use have undoubtedly pushed us to our limits.

“Nevertheless, the teams in Affalterbach and the UK never gave up and believed in themselves. I have the highest respect for all those involved and am proud of this team achievement.”

All 275 examples of the AMG ONE have already been sold, with deliveries later this year.
