Mercedes-AMG R50 - 1,300 Horsepower Hypercar To Go Into Production In The Near Future
|   Saturday, November 05, 2016
The Germans from Mercedes-AMG are preparing intensively for a new car. And they are not giddy over any car but rather a hypercar that will be released according to industry rumors in 2019.

The luxury automotive world has been talking about the Germans’ hypercar appearance, which will be produced to crush serious competitors such as the AM-001 RB from Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing.

The Mercedes-Benz project, known as R50, will be a cross between a supercar and a prototype of the endurance race car at Le Mans.
This is how Mercedes-Benz aligned to the market trends too, to produce cars inspired by Formula 1 race cars. Hopefully, the Mercedes-AMG R50 will go into production in the near future as fast as possible.

Because such a car arouses the interest of all, rumors in the press are on the increase. However, until the official confirmation, Mercedes-Benz can let us dream. And the dream is beautiful indeed.

The future car of the Germans will be built, according to sources, on a carbon fiber frame.
The power is expected to be delivered from either a transformed version for roads of the supercharged V6 hybrid engine with a displacement of 1.6 liters, which is derived from Formula 1, or from a turbo AMG “monster” engine with a displacement of 2.0 liters and an output of nearly 1,300 horsepower!

With such power, the Mercedes-AMG R50 will go from 0 to 100 km / h in just 2 seconds and will make its way to a top speed of around 350 km / hour.
Also, all the rumors say that the chassis tuned by Lotus will help the car obtain enviable performance.

In terms of design, the model from Mercedes-AMG will resemble, to some extent, the Vision Gran Turismo concept, but will take inspiration from the Silver Arrow concept car. This model was developed several years ago for the LA Design Challenge.

In addition, Mercedes-AMG R50 will borrow some design cues from the CLK GTR, a coupe version built in the 1990s, which carries a huge carbon fiber wing on the luggage compartment cover. Elements of construction will include aerodynamic characteristics, the Mercedes-AMG R50 benefiting from a perfect suspension and a cockpit in which the driver and passengers are placed in a similar position with race cars drivers in a Grand Prix tournament.
Visually, the car is designed to show aggression through the front part, but the body also seems glued to the asphalt. According to journalists, on the inside we discover that the car does not have a dashboard, but a LED tachometer, and a heads-up display.

Obviously the Mercedes-AMG R50 will offer customers a series of cutting-edge technologies, but also numerous safety systems.
We mention here only the electronic system that detects the driver skill, which enables or disables certain complex systems too.
Regarding the price, we have no details, but we are quite sure that the hypercar will not be a cheap one. Most likely those who want the car will have to fork over around 2 million euros.
