    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    Milanno:

    When I saw new McLaren`s pointy nose, its pretty obvious that they can make any shape if they have clever enough designers. Also, if we assume that Mercedes have plans to build a car that is very similar to one I posted I dont see any part that could make problems for pedestrian safety regulations.

     

    Mid engine and rear engine car can have a slope and pointy nose cause there are no engines under the bonnet, thus they don't need to provide extra room for pedestrian impact.

    Great info Nick! I am pretty confidant that Mercedes is able to produce extremely designed car that will be able to pass through security regulations.

    Something like what you posted and the Aston martin / Red Bull concepts are basically race cars.  So usability on the road is a big question.  Will be interesting to see what compromise Mercedes strikes between a race car and road car.

    That is what I expect from those models. True hypercars - hardcore to the bone, pain in a$$ to drive on public roads, insanely powerful and with striking design!

    Will never happen...

    You should take a look at crash and pedestrian protection regulations only... Smiley

    Very true, but keep in mind, that cars with a small build number are having to fulfill less regulatory requirements.

    Emissions and sound emissions? Yes. Crash and pedestrian protection though? I don't know, I think this is a legal requirement for street legal certification but I'm not sure about it. Smiley

    Keep in mind that picture is distorted and from a weird angle. The front does not look how you probably think it does based on that image.

    I know, this is why I already wrote earlier that I am going to keep my final verdict for the moment we have official photos and/or when/if I see this car live.

    Actually when I was interested at the 4C, this is what Alfa told me. I was surprised myself. It includes pedestrian protection (that's why that Alfa is so low in the front) but also little things like washable headlights, etc.

    Pretty sure the 1.6L figure is because this is the displacement of an F1 motor (which is nearly the same as used in the AMG).  I guess an F1 car with 1.6L costs even more...

    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    I did see the car yesterday. It looks amazing. Much better than anticipated. Also the technology was much more than I expected (please forgive, due to an NDA I can't tell any infos). Nevertheless - the entire project is well planned and super exciting. Let's see if our application will be heard - stay tuned. 


    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    I would you place next to LaFerrari or 918 regarding design in & out?

    Re: AMG plotting new SLR with hybrid power for 2018 launch

    @J.Seven - the design is more "racy" compared to the LaFerrari or 918. The front seems to be boring for many people - myself, I really loved it. Nevertheless, it has not that dolce Vita of an La Ferrari. It is a Mercedes and you can see that pretty well (don't think about A or S-Class, please smiley)

    11.000 rpm from a 1.6L engine !!! must come directly from the F1. I wonder how will it sound.

    It is a F1 engine. Same which was used last year. They changed a few things (adding electric starter, etc.) and explained everything in detail to me. And regarding 50tkm run time - they are very proud to achieve this ;)

    We signed by now or LOI of buying one and are still in the loop of being selected. Let's keep fingers crossed Smiley
