The Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar Probably Shouldn’t Have Happened
As far as high-performance cars go, the Mercedes-AMG One is one of the most impressive technological feats of our time. Unfortunately, it’s for that very reason that Mercedes management now regrets indulging in the ambitious project. While putting an F1 powertrain into a road-going car sounds great and it has been done in the past, apparently, Mercedes management did not account for all the challenges caused by adapting a racing engine for road use.

Tug-of-War: Does The AMG G63 Come Out On Top, Or Does It Succumb To The BMW X7 And iX?

The entire C-Class lineup, AMG models included, will only be offered with four-cylinder engines. In short, Mercedes is making good use of its somewhat outrageous M139 inline-four, the same one that manages to produce 381 horsepower in the AMG A45 and 416 horsepower in the AMG A45 S. Now, Mercedes has revealed the new AMG C43, and like the rest of the C-Class it features another version of the M139, this time tuned to just a hair over 400 ponies, and that’s for the base C43
Mercedes Executive Fears EVs Could Remain Expensive For the Foreseeable Future
It’s no secret that you have to pay for the latest and greatest technology, but over time, the latest and greatest becomes cheaper as it becomes more readily available. As the tech spreads across the global market, the cost of material and manufacturing begins to lower, and that reduction in cost ultimately passes down to consumers like you and I. This is already happening with electric vehicles to some extent with cars like the Nissan Leaf – a car that was once quite pricey – now available for less than $30,000 in some markets, which makes it the cheapest EV that you can buy today.
