AMG One: Monza’s Speediest Ruler

F1 Car Crushes Road Records

The record-breaking AMG One has done it yet again, this time taking the top prize at Monza. Its reputation as the fastest production car was solidified after being first crowned in the Nürburgring, Red Bull Ring and Hockenheim last year. Factory driver Maro René Engel navigated the circuit of the famed Italian track with a mind-blowing 1 minute 43.902 seconds.

AMG has touted a mammoth improvement on their previous record, clocking in at an astonishing 1 minute and 55.30 seconds as listed on Fastest Laps. The vehicle which achieved this feat was the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and it had been modified to be legally driven on the roads with its Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R MO tires customised for the electrically-powered automobile. Unfortunately, however, so far Mercedes-Benz’s performance arm hasn’t yet made available any recordings of the record-breaking endeavor.

The Valkyrie is definitely a worthy challenger for the crown of the AMG One; however, Aston Martin hasn’t put their best foot forward and given it a chance to dethrone Mercedes’ leading performance car. The AMG One features an intricate 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine plus four electric motors that together produce a whopping 1,048 horsepower, making it undeniably the reigning king of automotive powerhouses.

We must remind you that the AMG One provides powerful speed with the 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) accomplished in a remarkable 2.9 seconds and it only takes 7 seconds to reach 124 mph (200 km/h). It has a maximum speed of 219 mph (352 km/h) and its six-cylinder engine can rev up to 11,000 rpm, but should be reconstructed every 31,000 miles (50,000 kilometers). It’s highly unlikely, however, that anyone will ever table this mileage.

Put together with expert proficiency, the One is restricted to just 275 units and is being crafted at AMG’s production factory in Coventry, UK. The hybrid powertrain however, originates from the Mercedes‑AMG High Performance Powertrains division located in Brixworth. To complete this task easily and effectively Multimatic had to devise a specialized assembly line, every automobile then travels through roughly 16 building and assessment situations.
