The Mercedes-AMG One has been in the works for the past 5 years. Originally delayed, the hypercar was finally unveiled in its production model earlier this month. One might expect enthusiasts who had waited eagerly for years to be thrilled, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

The AMG One was initially an ambitious project, aiming to deliver a lightweight road car with an F1 engine. While it did achieve some of its goals, the car turned out to be heavier than originally promised by about 550 kg. A quote mentioned the disappointment with the car’s weight and acceleration not meeting expectations.

The added weight has impacted the car’s performance as well. Mercedes had targeted a 0-124 mph time under 6 seconds, with the goal set at 5.5 seconds. However, in reality, it can only achieve this in 7.1 seconds. This speed falls short of the McLaren 765LT and the Ferrari SF90 Stradale, both faster in accelerating from 0-62 mph and 0-124 mph.

Additionally, the maintenance costs for the AMG One are substantial. Basic servicing will be required every 5,000 km, with a more complex engine-out service scheduled every 50,000 km. For US owners, service and engine build warranty will cost $850,000 every 2-4 years.
