Prototypes in Spain: AMG GT 4-Door Coupe
Mercedes commenced deliveries of the AMG One early this year, yet it is plainly obvious that prototypes are continuing to be tested. Just recently four variants were apprehended on film at a layover in Granada, Spain. Moreover, accompanying them was a GT 4-Door Coupe in the 63 S trim, belonging to those from Affalterbach. Bearing witness to such a remarkable sight of four models is an uncommon occasion owing to the plight that only 275 patronized vehicles will ever be produced.
It’s complicated to comprehend what Mercedes was scrutinizing due to the launching of the One more than one year before. Subsequent hypercars have been denied since the enterprise has recognized it was an exertion to get the automotive to conform to contamination rules. These regulations are becoming even sterner with Euro 7 guidelines coming in 2025, so negligible chances of another F1 motorcar for the highway. Despite the fact that the 1.6-liter V6 powertrain is improbable to be used on any additional road-legal car, the crossbreed techniques could be exercised for later power models from AMG.
Witnessing four examples of the fastest production car at the Nürburgring is an incomparable experience for the eyes and ears, although, at the same time, it may be a slightly heartbreaking affair since no more One’s shall ever again be made. That motor is a masterpiece of engineering with its 11,000 rpm redline, yet it is delicate too, requiring that it gets reconstructed every 31,000 miles (50,000 kilometers). Needless to say, only a few cars will get to that type of mileage…
A few months back, ex-Mercedes F1 racer Valtteri Bottas was presented with his AMG One and Nico Rosberg is also eagerly awaiting his own hypercar. Talking about Mercedes F1 drivers, Lewis Hamilton had declared in an interview with Top Gear magazine in 2019 that he wanted to lend a hand in creating an “LH Edition” with AMG.
He stated that the car would have “a louder exhaust, more power, and a different body,” yet we haven’t received any updates since then. The current model already has an impressive 1,049 horsepower when combining the four electric motors, and it is remarkably loud while appearing unique.
