ELECTRIFIED GASOLINE POWERTRAINS.

Internal combustion engines.

MAKING A FORMULA 1 INTERNAL
COMBUSTION ENGINE STREET-LEGAL

IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST
CHALLENGES IN THE HISTORY OF
THE INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE.

Something really special – at AMG we make it simple. For example, Project One. Genuine Formula 1 technology for the street. The task: To develop an engine that actually operates between 7,000 and 11,000 rpm so it can be driven under everyday conditions without sacrificing any of its character. And significantly reduce its emissions at the same time. For engineers, a challenge like that comes only once in a lifetime – or perhaps more often at AMG.

Project One.

The high-performance plug-in drive consists of a highly integrated and intelligently networked unit comprising a hybrid-turbo internal combustion engine with a total of four electric motors.
The active ventilation slits (so-called louvers) in the front wheel arches positively influence the contact pressure on the front axle and contribute to the aerodynamic balance of the vehicle.
The black air outlets in the front hood channel the warm airflow along the sides of the passenger compartment. That permits a fresh air stream to pass unimpeded over the passenger compartment into the intake duct on the roof.
The design of the Project One takes its inspiration from the top tier of motorsport. Its mid-engine design underpins its extremely muscular proportions with a cockpit that’s set far forward, voluminous wheel arches, wasp waist and extensive tail.
The vertical shark fin and the split rear wing that can be adjusted in two stages provide aerodynamic efficiency and performance benefits at high speeds.
Mounted in a mid-engine configuration ahead of the rear axle, the power unit can reach speeds of up to 11,000 rpm, which is currently unique for a road-going vehicle.
Another innovation is the high voltage of the EQ Power+ drive system, which operates on 800 volts instead of the usual 400 volts.
The 1.6-liter V6 hybrid gasoline engine with direct injection and electrically assisted single turbocharging comes directly from the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula 1 racing car.
The thermal efficiency of the combustion engine with electric turbocharger (MGU-H) in conjunction with the electric motor on the crankshaft (MGU-K) will be more than 40%. That value represents an absolutely unprecedented achievement in a series production vehicle.
The two electric motors on the front axle are truly amazing machines capable of reaching speeds of up to 50,000 rpm.
The electric turbocharger recuperates part of the surplus energy from the exhaust system, either storing it in the high-voltage lithium-ion battery or supplying additional drive power to another electric motor.
The two electric motors on the front axle are truly amazing machines capable of reaching speeds of up to 50,000 rpm.
The rear axle is driven by the 1.6-liter V6 hybrid gasoline engine with direct injection, four valves per cylinder, four overhead camshafts, and electrically assisted single turbocharging as well as an electric motor connected to the crankshaft.

Plenty of inspiration.

THERE’S THE INTERACTION WITH
OUR FORMULA 1 COLLEAGUES IN ENGLAND
AND WITH THE GUYS IN SINDELFINGEN –

THE WORK ENVIRONMENT IS
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC.

At AMG you experience the speed, flexibility and proximity of a medium-sized company – and you have the opportunity to work on a joint project together with our Formula 1 colleagues from Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in England where you’re exposed to a whole new dimension in vehicle development. Or the opportunity to make use of the unique research and development resources at Mercedes-Benz Cars. The best of two worlds – at AMG, that’s how we roll.

Hybridization.

EVERY COMPONENT IS DESIGNED TO WITHSTAND

MOTORSPORT CONDITIONS. THAT GOES FOR THE BATTERY, TOO.

Electronic development.

“MORE NEW JOB DESCRIPTIONS WILL BE ADDED
IN OUR AREA, THAT’S FOR SURE... UX DESIGNERS, PROGRAMMERS...

BUT THEY’LL WORK HERE TOO, BECAUSE
THEY THINK THE CARS ARE SO AWESOME.”

Dragan, Electronic Development

Sound development.

WE HAVE TO DEFINE OUR BRAND
VALUE ACOUSTICALLY AND CARRY

IT OVER INTO THE ELECTRIC ERA.

AMG is emotion. And the characteristic sound is an essential part of that emotion. But what does Affalterbach sound like electrically? Or as a hybrid? When accelerating? Or idling? ... To define that sound, we’re also drawing inspiration from specialists who know how to generate emotion acoustically. With sound engineers, game developers, and even our friends from Linkin Park. A thrilling road trip into the future of AMG.

Digital services.

WE WANT TO
BUILD A DIGITAL

PERFORMANCE UNIVERSE
AROUND THE VEHICLE.

AMG goes digital. But we’re doing it our way. As a performance and sports car brand, we’re developing a digital ecosystem that coherently expands our vehicles into virtual space. And one that provides greater opportunities for the driver to create an even more intense driving experience for themselves. Our “Track Pace” app is a first milestone along the way – born on the race track.
