A few days ago we have announced you that Mercedes-AMG is working on a supercar is order to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Today, the guys from Automobile Mag are coming with new details.
The hypercar is internally known as R50 and it was developed in order to close the gap between a road-going supercar and a Le Mans prototype.
The hypercar will have a curb weight under 2,900 pounds and the power will come from one or two sources. Some are expecting a V6 1.6 liter Formula 1 engine combined with electric motors, while other are saying that the model will feature the impressive 2.0 liter turbo engine. Either way, output is expected to top 1,000 horsepower.
As a result, the upcoming hypercar will be able to run from stand still to 100 km/h in less than 2,5 seconds, while the top speed will clock the 350 km/h mark. But the most important fact is that the upcoming Mercedes-AMG hypercar will be revealed during the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the event which will kick-off in late September.Source: Automobile mag
