Mercedes Discusses Formula One-Powered Hypercar

Engine data gives Mercedes motorsport boss “goosebumps”

Aston Martin and Red Bull's jump-started the hybrid hypercar party. ESPN reports that Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff went on record saying that AMG's next hypercar will have a true Formula One powertrain. He emphasized the unit isn't simply an engine with F1 technologies tacked on, but would be based completely on the engine in its current F1 cars.

"It's awesome that we have finally put an F1 engine, a real F1 engine, in a real road car -- this is not F1-like technology," Wolff told ESPN.

"Real F1 technology in a road car is quite a difficult technical exercise if you imagine all the cooling that is necessary, but the data I have seen gives me goose bumps."

Mercedes recently confirmed the project at the . The mid-engine hypercar, dubbed R50 by Stuttgart snitches, was previously reported as having a 2.0-liter turbo-four or a Formula One-inspired V-6 engine.

Only time will tell us what the new hypercar's powertrain will really be, but an all-wheel-drive, F1-powered road car with over 1,300 hp must bebonkers.

The beast is expected to make its debut in time for Mercedes-AMG's 50th anniversary next year. Bring on the goose bumps, Affalterbach.
