Mercedes-AMG One Thinks It’s Unique, Which It Isn’t

The Mercedes-AMG One will be a fast and pricey hypercar but there are ways to spend nearly $3 million


  • A brief video released by Mercedes-AMG shows footage of the One tackling a track.

  • The One is said to have over 1,000 PS (986 horsepower) and will top out at 350 km/h.

  • Only 275 Ones will be assembled.


Mercedes-Benz shared a video on its YouTube channel showing and explaining that the Mercedes-AMG One is, in their words, unmeasured, unrivaled, and unreal. While we might agree with the first and last comment, the folks at AMG probably should have surfed the web to see what else is available in the ultra-niche, mega-expensive, massive-power hypercar movement.

Mercedes-AMG ONE

Truth is that all 275 examples of the incredible Mercedes-AMG One hypercar were sold long ago, so AMG can claim whatever they please. If you feel left out because you had planned to purchase one, there are other hypercars worth considering. Koenigsegg makes some fantastic ballistically fast cars and there’s the Aston Martin Valkyrie, as noted by Motor1. But, if it’s true “e-performance” that you crave, there’s the Lotus Evija, the Battista hyper GT, not to mention the Rimac C_Two. So, the Mercedes-AMG One is quite rivaled.

As a reminder, the One is still very much special as it uses an adapted version of Hamilton’s 2015 F1 race car’s powertrain which is a turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 with four electric motors. Altogether, output is of over 1,000 PS (986 horsepower), probably closer to 1,200 horsepower.

After a number of delays, the first Mercedes-AMG One will be delivered later this year.
