Why F1 + AMG = the ul­ti­mate hy­per­car

Car (South Africa) - - FRONT PAGE -

THIS car is still a con­cept, as MercedesBenz is care­ful to point out, but the groundswell of ex­cite­ment sur­round­ing Mercedes-amg’s all-wheel-drive hy­per­car ap­pears well jus­ti­fied. It will go into pro­duc­tion and will fea­ture a 1,6-litre V6 hy­brid pow­er­plant and rad­i­cal construction that bridges the gap be­tween the Af­fal­ter­bach firm’s road-go­ing per­for­mance cars and the W08 F1 race­car pi­loted by Lewis Hamil­ton and Valt­teri Bot­tas.
