AMG will construct simply 275 examples of its
Challenge One hypercar, however as an alternative of letting the entire
automobile’s high-tech wizardry go to waste after the ultimate one is
constructed, the corporate will import it into future fashions.

That is the phrase of AMG boss Tobias Moers who in an interview
Autocar revealed Friday mentioned the Challenge One’s
expertise will function in common manufacturing fashions from about
2020 or 2021.

However earlier than you get excited in regards to the prospect of extra AMG vehicles
powered by the Mercedes-AMG Formulation 1 engine that may function
within the Challenge One, notice that Moers within the interview is
referring particularly to the hypercar’s Four-motor electrical drive

Within the Challenge One, one electrical motor is mated to the engine
and helps spin the rear wheels. One other electrical motor is
built-in with the turbocharger to assist spin its compressor.
Thus far the setup is identical utilized in F1. The place the Challenge One
differs is the addition of two extra electrical motors
independently powering every of the entrance wheels, thus making
the hypercar an all-wheel-drive automobile. Importantly, all 4
electrical motors are capable of recapture power that is then saved
in a lithium-ion battery.

So what common manufacturing mannequin would possibly we see the setup used? A
successor to AMG’s GT sports activities automobile is an effective wager. Or maybe the
firm will add a mid-engine supercar as a everlasting fixture
to its lineup. That might most likely ruffle a number of feathers at
one other sports activities automobile marque near Stuttgart.

AMG will unveil the manufacturing model of the Challenge One later
this 12 months. Construct slots for all 275 vehicles are bought out and the
first clients ought to begin receiving their vehicles in early
