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

    1200hp/1200kgs with torque vectoring on front wheels?

    should be a hell of a car!


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

    I still believe that AM RB will be the more interesting car - but of course such a Mercedes will and has to be some Kind of Benchmark. The small displacement engine is certainly something new - 1:1 not....

    The all about question will be if that car can somehow deliver the required traction. Numbers are even higher than LMP1 - it must be amazingly fast. Hard to believe that such a car can handle the Nuerburgring. I'm very curious!


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

    I seriously doubt cosworth has the knowledge to produce such a high revving v12 na engine.

    Newey's car cooling constraints should be difficult to reach Smiley

    Most importantly, will that then be a highly efficient internal combustion engine a la F1 technology?! That would blow all other competition out of the water, traction or no traction Smiley

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

    Mercedes and Aston Martin (in cooperation with RedBull) have plans to build two very sick hyper cars. I wonder is there any secret connection (mutual help) between MB and AM, since we know that those two manufacturers work together (DB11 came with some Merc technology).

    For $1.5m you can buy a very decent refurbished Falcon 50 and have change to spare... You can charter it out, I am told you can then travel for "free" but low level of confidence in that statement...

    Lets assume that the Chiron is in the same league as that AMG. The typical Bugatti Owner which owns 84 cars, 3 jets, 1 yacht:

    Those numbers are skewed by a handful of middle eastern royalty who count their 3000 Mercedes fleet among their possessions.

    If I had the money for a jet, I would fly it myself (would need to get my license first though...I'm no pilot).

    I still believe however that commercial flights are the safest (so far).

    This is very accurate! Especially owners of big companies (depending on number of people they bring with them) they are picking different types/sizes of private jets.

    Did Mercedes just tease Project One in a design study?

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

    I am sick of "conventional" design in car industry, so I like anything that is out of regular shape we know. Aston Martin and RedBull made awesome concept, and now Mercedes is making sick car too. Something like this would be awesome kiss

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

    For a hypercar, the design works...I guess. Not sure however how much of the initial design from these sketches/models will make it to the final (street legal) car though.

    When it comes to Mercedes sports cars division, I am pretty impressed. They transfer pretty much everything from original designers sketch to production model.

    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!

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

    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.

    Wait until we see the final car. Unfortunately designers cannot work as they please, there are technical aspects to take into consideration and of course legal ones as well.
