New Mercedes AMG C-Class Hauls Around the Nürburgring...Quietly
A Mercedes AMG C-Class without a V-8 would have been considered unthinkable ten years ago. Back then, the 6.2-liter V-8, which had one of the best exhaust soundtracks since the turn of the century, was dropped in nearly every AMG model in production. This meant that the German car industry was awash with glorious rumbles, snorts, growls, and bellows from Merc’s handcrafted naturally aspirated V-8. Then, by 2016 the current-generation C-Class was in full production with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that was more efficient and powerful than the old 6.2 but lacked some noise and character.
The AMG one and GT 63 S Share More DNA Than You Think
The Mercedes AMG Project One was first unveiled about four years ago and has been in development at least to some degree ever since. We knew it would take a while to get the 1,000 horsepower 1.6-liter turbo hybrid V-6 Formula 1 powertrain to play well on the road, but it has been a long wait. However, with the development stage being replaced with the production stage we are starting to see just how much of the Project One is being carried over to more conventional models.
US Regulations Create A Roadblock for the AMG One Supercar
When it comes to cars banned in the U.S., the list is very long and includes a lot of cool cars like the Jaguar XJ220-S or the Nissan Skyline R34 GT-R V-spec. Even more recent cars, like the McLaren Speedtail or the Koenigsegg One:1 are on the same list. And this is because National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has very strict criteria to determine which car is safe to be offered in the States. And when we say safe, we mean safe for the passengers, for the other drivers on the road, for the environment, and for the economy itself.
Another car that has been hit by these strict regulations is the recently-launched Mercedes-AMG One.
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.
