The new Mercedes-AMG ONE: Formula 1 technology for the road

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 22

The cornerstone of AMG was laid on June 1, 1967. To mark the 55th anniversary of the performance and sports car brand, the production version of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is celebrating its world premiere. For the first time in the world, the two-seater super sports car brings the most modern and efficient Formula 1 hybrid drive technology from the race track to the road. With one combustion engine and four electric motors, the performance hybrid delivers a total of 782 kW (1.063 hp), and the top speed is limited to 352 km/h. The extremely complex development was implemented in close cooperation with the Formula 1 experts from Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth. In the UK, the Mercedes-AMG ONE will also be officially seen in action for the first time at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​(23-26 June 2022).

Mercedes AMG ONE

The unique hypercar not only impresses with its E PERFORMANCE Formula 1 hybrid drive, but also with other motorsport technology. This ranges from the carbon monocoque and the carbon body to the load-bearing engine/transmission unit and active aerodynamics to the push-rod chassis. With its complex technology, the two-seater Mercedes-AMG ONE sometimes even offers more than a Formula 1 racing car. It has the fully variable AMG Performance 4MATIC+ all-wheel drive with hybrid-driven rear axle and electrically-driven front axle with torque vectoring. It can also drive purely electrically.

“With the Mercedes-AMG ONE we have more than exhausted the limit. The immense technical challenges of making a modern Formula 1 powertrain suitable for everyday road use have undoubtedly pushed us to our limits. Over the course of the development period, many may have thought that the project would be impossible to implement. Nevertheless, the teams in Affalterbach and Great Britain never gave up and believed in themselves. I have the utmost respect for everyone involved and am proud of this team effort. Putting such a hypercar on its wheels is certainly unique.

For us at Mercedes-AMG, this applies not only from a technical point of view, but also in relation to the close exchange with our loyal customers. Together with us they went through ups and downs in the course of development. They were an integral part of Project One right from the start and can now look forward to the highly exclusive and unique Mercedes-AMG ONE, which has now cleared the next hurdle and passed all ECE certification tests," says Philipp Schiemer, CEO of Mercedes -AMG Ltd. “Ultimately, the performance data of the Mercedes-AMG ONE are only a small excerpt of the technology in this vehicle. Apart from a Formula 1 drive train, which generates 1063 hp from a relatively small, highly efficient combustion engine in combination with four electric motors, the exhaust aftertreatment was the Herculean task.

The teams from Mercedes-AMG and Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains really did a great job here. This project was partly a blessing and a curse at the same time. But we took the rocky road, and as a technician, you get excited when you see the many details. Starting with the materials used, the extraordinary chassis components and the aerodynamic refinements - the Mercedes-AMG ONE can hardly be topped in terms of complexity. In a Formula 1 car, a team of engineers with laptops ensure that the powertrain is started. With our hypercar, a push of a button is all it takes. This also illustrates the immense software know-how that is in this vehicle,” says Jochen Hermann, Technical Director of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Extraordinary E PERFORMANCE hybrid drive with 1,6-liter V6 engine and four electric motors

The E PERFORMANCE hybrid drive of the Mercedes-AMG ONE comes directly from Formula 1 and was realized in close cooperation with the experts from Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth. It consists of a highly integrated and intelligently networked unit consisting of a hybrid turbo combustion engine with a total of four electric motors: One is integrated in the turbocharger, one is located directly on the combustion engine and is connected to the crankshaft, and two more drive the front wheels.

The technology of the 1,6-litre V6 hybrid petrol engine with electrically assisted single-turbocharger corresponds to that of the current Formula 1 engine. The four overhead camshafts are driven via spur gears. In order to achieve a high level of engine speed, the mechanical valve springs have been replaced by pneumatic valve springs. The engine installed in the mid-engine position in front of the rear axle rotates at up to 11.000 rpm. However, for longer durability and the use of commercially available super plus petrol, it deliberately remains below the F1 rev limit.

The high-revving engine is powered by a high-tech turbocharger. The exhaust and compressor turbines are spaced apart and connected by a shaft. This allows the turbocharger to be installed in a lower position. There is an approx. 90 kW electric motor on the shaft. Electronically controlled, this drives the shaft of the turbocharger directly, thus accelerating the compressor wheel to up to 100.000 rpm before the exhaust gas flow takes over. The typical Formula 1 designation for this unit is MGU-H (Motor Generator Unit Heat).

Lightning-fast response, faster than a naturally aspirated V8

Biggest advantage: The response behavior improves significantly right from idle speed (when the exhaust gas flow is still weak) over the entire speed range. The 1,6-liter V6 engine responds even more spontaneously to commands from the accelerator pedal, and the overall driving experience is highly dynamic. In addition, the electrification of the exhaust gas turbocharger enables higher torque at low engine speeds. This also increases agility and optimizes acceleration. Even if the driver takes their foot off the gas or brakes, the technology is able to maintain the boost pressure at all times. This ensures a continuously direct response.

The electric exhaust gas turbocharger in the Mercedes-AMG ONE has another advantage: It uses part of the excess energy from the exhaust gas flow to generate electrical energy as a generator. This is either stored in the high-voltage lithium-ion battery or fed to the electric front axle or the electric machine (MGU-K = Motor Generator Unit Kinetic) on the combustion engine. The MGU-K has an output of 120 kW, is positioned directly on the combustion engine and is connected to the crankshaft via a spur gear drive – another technology that ensures maximum efficiency and performance in Formula 1.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 59

Turbocharging and direct injection with spray-guided combustion process not only enable high power output, but also increase thermodynamic efficiency and thus reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions. The high-performance six-cylinder has two injection systems. Direct injection transports the fuel into the combustion chambers at a pressure of up to 270 bar. This sometimes happens several times and is controlled by the engine control as required. The additional port injection is required in order to achieve the high specific output of the engine while at the same time complying with the exhaust gas limits.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 35

Added to this is the very complex and effective exhaust gas cleaning system with four preheated metal catalytic converters, two ceramic catalytic converters and two petrol particle filters. The four heating elements with a total output of 16 kW make it possible to comply with the EU6 exhaust emission limits under real driving conditions (RDE). In addition, the exhaust gas cleaning system is counter-pressure-optimized to avoid performance losses. This also applies to the large rear silencer made of light titanium.

New all-wheel drive with purely electrically driven front axle

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 54

The two electric motors on the front axle, each with an output of 120 kW, achieve a rotor speed of up to 50.000 rpm. They are each connected to the front wheels via a reduction gear. The front axle, which is therefore driven purely electrically, works wheel-selectively in each case and thus enables individual torque distribution for particularly high driving dynamics ("torque vectoring"). In addition, the braking energy can be optimally used for recuperation with the two electric motors – up to 80 percent under everyday driving conditions. This energy is stored in the battery and is available for a longer electric range or for more drive performance. Each electric motor is controlled by its own power electronics, which are placed in the floor of the car close to the electric motors.

High performance battery with Formula 1 technology

The lithium-ion energy store is also a special development by Mercedes-AMG. Its technology has already proven itself under the toughest conditions in the Formula 1 hybrid racing cars of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team and can also be found in the battery of the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 SE PERFORMANCE. The AMG high-performance battery combines high power that can be called up frequently in succession with low weight in order to increase overall performance. Added to this are the fast energy consumption and the high power density. This means that when driving briskly on hilly terrain, for example, drivers can spontaneously call up the full performance potential uphill, while there is strong recuperation when driving downhill.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 16

The arrangement of the battery cells and the cell cooling correspond to the Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 racing car. For everyday use, however, the number in the Mercedes-AMG ONE is many times greater. The capacity of 8,4 kWh is sufficient for an all-electric range of 18,1 kilometers. It is charged using alternating current and the integrated 3,7 kW on-board charger. In addition, the battery can be supplied with fresh energy by recuperation or by the combustion engine. The lithium-ion high-voltage battery and the DC/DC converter for supporting and charging the 12 V vehicle electrical system are housed behind the front axle in the vehicle floor to save space.

Innovative direct cooling of the high-voltage battery

The basis for the high performance of the battery is the innovative direct cooling: A high-tech coolant flows around all cells and cools them individually. Background: Every battery needs a defined temperature for optimum power output. If the energy store gets too cold or too hot, it loses power noticeably at times or has to be turned down to avoid damage when the heat levels are too high. An even temperature control of the battery therefore has a decisive influence on its performance, service life and safety.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 29

The coolant circulates from top to bottom through the entire battery, past each cell, by means of a high-performance electric pump and also flows through a heat exchanger mounted directly on the battery. The system is designed to ensure even heat distribution in the battery. The result: The battery is always within an even, optimal working temperature window of an average of 45 degrees Celsius - no matter how often it is charged or discharged. If you drive hard, it is quite possible that the average temperature will be exceeded. The protective mechanisms are therefore set in such a way that the maximum performance can be drawn from the battery, in order to then reduce the temperature level again through direct cooling.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 53

Only direct cooling makes it possible to use cells with a very high power density. Thanks to this individual solution, the battery system is particularly light and compact. The material-saving busbar concept and the light but stable crash structure of the aluminum housing also contribute to the low weight. It guarantees maximum security. Another feature is the high voltage of the drive system, which operates at 800 volts instead of the usual 400 volts. Due to the higher voltage level, the cable cross-sections can be significantly reduced, for example, and space and weight can be saved accordingly.

Intelligent operating strategies for optimal performance and efficiency

All in all, the high-performance plug-in hybrid drive system offers numerous intelligent operating strategies that are optimally tailored to different application scenarios. The driving programs range from purely electric operation to a highly dynamic mode (Strat 2), which corresponds to a setting used in Formula 1 qualifying for the best possible lap times. Despite the high level of system complexity, the driver will always receive the optimal combination of performance and efficiency, depending on his current requirements.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 57

Six driving programs - from purely electric driving to racetrack mode

The Mercedes-AMG ONE initially starts silently when the electric motors on the front axle are switched on. At the same time, the catalytic converters are preheated. The combustion engine only starts when the correct catalytic converter temperature has been reached.

  • Race Safe: Standard program with needs-based hybrid driving mode and purely electric drive-off. The combustion engine only kicks in when more power is required.
  • Race: Hybrid driving mode with special charging strategy. The combustion engine runs continuously and can charge the high-voltage battery more, so that full electric power is always available.
  • EV: Purely electric driving.
  • Race Plus (track only): active aerodynamics, suspension lowered by 37 mm (FA)/30 mm (RA), tighter suspension tuning, special power management.
  • Strat 2 (track only): active aerodynamics, even tighter chassis tuning and vehicle lowering by 37 mm (FA)/30 mm (RA). Full power from all engines as in Formula 1 qualifying.
  • Individual: Personal preference settings for road modes.

Impressive acceleration values ​​are possible with the RACE START function in the driving programs Race, Race Plus and Strat 2: The sprint from a standing start to a speed of 200 km/h is completed in just 7,0 seconds.

All-new automated 7-speed manual transmission

Power is transmitted to the rear wheels by means of a 7-speed manual transmission that has been completely newly developed for the Mercedes-AMG ONE. The lightweight gear design saves weight, integration into the bodyshell increases rigidity and takes up very little space. It is specially designed for the high torque and speed capacity of the high-performance Formula 1 hybrid powertrain. Shift rods and the 4-disc carbon clutch are hydraulically controlled. The gear ratios are designed to minimize the power difference after upshifting and keep the combustion engine at high revs. The locking differential is integrated into the transmission.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 7

Multi-link chassis with innovative push-rod suspension

The basis for the outstanding driving characteristics of the Mercedes-AMG ONE is the light and high-strength carbon monocoque, whose technology also comes from Formula 1. This also applies to the integration of the engine and transmission: Both fulfill load-bearing functions and completely accommodate the rear wheel suspension.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 12

An aluminum construction with five links and two adjustable spring struts is used for the chassis at the front and rear. The coilover suspension has several special features: The two push-rod struts are positioned transversely to the direction of travel. The innovative arrangement of the spring and damper unit replaces the function and use of a conventional tubular anti-roll bar. This solution reliably prevents rolling movements, even when changing direction very quickly, without being uncomfortable. Roll stiffness and roll damping are completely independent of lift stiffness and lift damping. Wheel bearings with ceramic ball bearings for less friction prove the attention to technical detail.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 37

The adaptive adjustable damping can be adjusted via the driving program: the suspension settings C (Comfort) and S (Sport) are available in the driving programs EV, Race Safe, Race and Individual; the suspension settings S (Sport) and S+ (Sport+) in the drive programs Race Plus and Strat 2. As part of the active aerodynamics, the suspension can be lowered hydraulically: by 37 millimeters on the front axle and by 30 millimeters on the rear axle. In addition, a lifter for the front axle (can only be activated in the road driving programs) prevents the Mercedes-AMG ONE from touching down on underground car park ramps, for example.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 26

The overall tuning of springs and dampers is designed for perfectly balanced, easily controllable and highly dynamic handling. All-wheel drive and torque vectoring also contribute to this. Unlike in Formula 1, ABS is on board as standard, and ESP® can be regulated in three stages, as is usual with Mercedes-AMG. ESP® ON stands for a high level of safety and is always activated in "Highway" mode. ESP® SPORT HANDLING MODE allows higher yaw angles before the system intervenes for a sporty driving style. ESP® OFF switches the system off Extremely dynamic driving style on closed roads. All three settings are possible in "Track" mode.

Exclusive forged wheel with carbon partial cover

A new development is the 10-spoke forged aluminum wheel with central locking, which is reserved exclusively for the Mercedes-AMG ONE. It has a radial, aerodynamically sophisticated carbon partial cover. It improves the vehicle's aero efficiency through better airflow around the wheel. Further proof of how the AMG development team pays the utmost attention to even the smallest details, thereby increasing the overall efficiency of the hypercar.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 59

Newly developed 9-spoke magnesium forged wheels designed exclusively for the Mercedes-AMG ONE are also available as an option. In addition to central locking technology, they feature a patented bionic design to maximize lightweight construction and rigidity. The aerodynamically designed carbon partial cover is a good example of the combination of low weight, optimized brake cooling and aero efficiency. At the same time, nine air scoops per wheel ensure active ventilation of the wheel housing and thus improved heat dissipation from the brakes.

At the front, the Mercedes-AMG ONE rolls on 10,0 J x 19 wheels with 285/35 ZR 19 Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R M01 tires that were developed exclusively for the hypercar. 12,0 J x 20 wheels are fitted at the rear, with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2R M01 tires in size 335/30 ZR 20. The exclusivity of the tires is reflected in the design of the sidewall, in which the vehicle silhouette and the number 1 is incorporated.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 64

A special, weight-optimized AMG carbon ceramic high-performance composite brake system is used for deceleration. On the front axle with 6-piston fixed calipers and internally ventilated and perforated brake discs measuring 398 x 38 millimeters. 4-piston fixed calipers are mounted on the rear axle. In addition, there are internally ventilated and perforated brake discs measuring 380 x 34 millimeters. The low weight of the system reduces the unsprung masses and thus increases driving dynamics and agility. In addition, the ceramic brake is characterized by a longer service life, higher corrosion resistance and higher thermal stability. The "AMG Carbon Ceramic" lettering and the specially painted brake calipers visually indicate the special braking system.

Exterior design: Fascination and function

The design of the carbon body is inspired by the pinnacle of motorsport. Above all, however, it embodies the Mercedes-AMG principle that fascination is always linked to function. Each component fulfills a task. The mid-engine concept based on a carbon monocoque plus supporting engine/gearbox unit defines the extremely muscular proportions: typically racing, the cockpit is positioned far forward, combined with voluminous wheel arches, a wasp waist and a wide rear end. Designers and aerodynamics experts worked closely together on the design. Even the base body was aerodynamically designed for maximum downforce and balanced balance. With success: The Mercedes-AMG ONE already generates downforce from 50 km/h, which increases with increasing speed.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 65

The front view: Powerful and functional

The front view is characterized by the large black front apron, whose various air intakes extend across the entire width of the vehicle. The trapezoidal center section bears a large, white AMG logo. Above this is the Mercedes star on the body. It is designed in the form of an artistically and technically perfect airbrush motif - by a specialist in the UK. The AMG-typical A-wing under the center section sets another characteristic accent and merges seamlessly into the fenders.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 22

Large air inlets dominate on the left and right, which are framed by U-shaped air deflection elements and are each divided by two black transverse fins. Flat LED headlights blend seamlessly into the body contour. The black air outlets in the front hood direct the warm air flow around the driver's cab to the side. This allows fresh air to flow unhindered via the driver's cab into the intake tract on the roof. The active flaps on the front diffuser influence the aero performance on the front axle and ensure a good aero balance. The active ventilation slots (so-called louvres) in the front wheel arches also increase the contact pressure on the front axle.

Tight flanks, voluminous wheel arches

The crouched, dynamic greenhouse has an unmistakable, spherical architecture with an independent window graphic. The large, dark zone represents important technical functions. These technical components stand in visual contrast to the clean overall shape of the car. The air intake derived from Formula 1 is dominant on the roof, through which the engine sucks in fresh air as required. The black inlet transitions elegantly into the black vertical shark fin: it prevents cross flow or stalling at the rear, thereby improving cornering stability. Overall, this also means more performance and safety at high speeds. The power unit is hidden under two removable carbon covers.

Large NACA air inlets are integrated into these, which guarantee optimal airflow for the coolers placed underneath. The side view shows a sensuous and clear surface design, also combined with functional features. The sides of the car are drawn in taut in the middle, black carbon air ducts optimally direct the airflow around the body, just like in motorsport. The airbrush design on the flanks was created by the same artist who designed the paintwork for the Formula 1 racing cars. Tight-fitting wheel arches stretch over all four wheels like muscles ready to leap. The doors open diagonally forwards and upwards. The fuel filler flap is located at the rear right, and the charging socket for the plug-in hybrid battery is located at the rear left.

The rear: fascination and function

The sharp spoiler lip and the two-part rear diffuser bring aerodynamic efficiency and performance advantages at high speeds. This also applies to the specially shaped underbody with longitudinal fins and openings for cooling channels. The rear wing can be extended in two parts with a wing blade plus an integrated, adjustable flap. The design of the exhaust tailpipe with a large round outlet and two other small round openings was taken directly from the Formula 1 vehicles.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 35

The rear apron with its voluminous black honeycomb grid and carbon parts contributes to the powerful appearance. The rear lights, each with three diamond-shaped light elements, take up the graphic design of the AMG brand logo and thus also the design of the headlights. The high-tech materials and color combinations of the outer skin are taken directly from racing. Functional exterior components are presented in visible carbon and staged with richly contrasting sculptural, sensuous paint surfaces.

Active aerodynamics: three configurations to choose from

The active, hydraulically controlled aerodynamics increases the downforce on the front and rear axles and also improves aero efficiency. Depending on the driver's wishes and the selected driving program, three different aero configurations are available:

  • "Highway" in the drive programs "Race Safe", "Race", "EV" and "Individual":
    The louvers are closed, the active flaps on the front diffuser are extended and the rear wing including the flap is retracted.
  • "Track" in the driving programs "Race Plus" and "Strat2" (both only allowed on the race track):
    The front diffuser flaps fold up to bring the front diffuser contour into a maximally efficient shape. The rear wing extends fully, as does the rear wing flap. The louvers are opened to increase the downforce on the front axle and to increase the vacuum in the wheel arches. The vehicle is lowered by 37 millimeters on the front axle and 30 millimeters on the rear axle. The result of all these measures: the total downforce increases by up to five times compared to the road driving programs, depending on the speed.
  • "Race DRS" (Drag Reduction System), as in Formula 1, can be activated at the touch of a button in the racetrack driving programs:
    The rear wing flap retracts completely and the louvers are closed. Although the downforce is reduced by around 20 percent, the Mercedes-AMG ONE reaches high speeds even faster. DRS can either be deactivated again manually or deactivated automatically as soon as the driver brakes or lateral acceleration is measured.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 60

The interior: Formula 1 for two

The interior design concept follows the function in racing, which is expressed in the radical design language. In this way, Formula 1 technology can be experienced authentically on the racetrack and on the road. Here, too, every detail has a function. "No styling" is the design consequence that results from the requirements for this driving machine. The design is a synthesis of sculptural design language and uncompromising racing design. In the bold minimalism of the monocoque interior, the reduced components are highlighted and staged in terms of design and functionality.

The ergonomically designed interior offers space for two people. The firmly fixed racing seat shell sculpture combines aesthetically with the footwell to form a unit. It also merges laterally into the sill area and becomes an integral part of the highly sculptural monocoque landscape. The backrests of the AMG Motorsport seat shells can be adjusted in two ways position 25o and 30o. The steering wheel can be adjusted electrically and the pedal box can be adjusted mechanically (in eleven steps) so that the driver can adopt an optimal driving position. The passenger footrest is also individually adjustable.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 66

The center tunnel is also a functional component of the carbon support structure. It fits seamlessly into the seat sculpture and follows the principle of minimalism with its gently sloping contours. A storage compartment with a high-quality design, a reduced switch panel and the engine start button form a unit. The compartment is finished with a transparent lid. Two mini-USB ports for external audio devices increase suitability for everyday use. The start/stop button is prominently positioned on the tunnel and forms the front end of the control elements. The cylindrical housing body made of real metal is held on the side by two cheeks, which protrude organically from the basic volume of the tunnel.

Interior with functional structural parts

The slender wing profile of the instrument panel appears light and floating. As a functional structural part, it also reinforces the hypercar's monocoque. The two high-resolution, free-standing 10-inch displays with individual Mercedes-AMG ONE graphics are finished with high-quality real metal parts and adapted to the instrument panel. The display of the instrument cluster is positioned slightly higher in front of the driver. The multimedia monitor on the right of the center console is tilted towards the driver. The twin jet unit hangs like a gondola below the center screen. Screen and nozzles merge into one unit and underline the puristic design concept. The ventilation nozzles take up the basic rectangular shape of the displays.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 6

The door paneling is made of elegant and functional carbon and is integrated into the sporty interior in a form-fitting manner. A cassette made of real metal connects the air vents and power window switches, which are integrated as two deeply inlaid rectangles. A contour drawn far forward in the door runs to the rear like a muscle, creating space for the characteristic window line of the exterior.

Steering wheel like in Formula 1

In the radically designed and high-quality racing steering wheel, operating and functional elements are combined with original racing car components to ensure safe operation in extreme driving situations. As is usual with racing cars, the “shift light” is displayed at the top of the steering wheel rim. The steering wheel, which is flattened at the top and bottom and has an integrated airbag, offers further motorsport references: various functions can be activated via the two integrated AMG steering wheel buttons without having to take your hands off the wheel. For example the driving programs, the nine-stage AMG Traction Control, the activation of the DRS or the chassis settings.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 7

Screen instead of interior mirror, colors and materials from the racing car

The Mercedes-AMG developers have also thought about suitability for everyday use and further ease of use: air conditioning and electric windows are on board as standard, and the infotainment system ensures seamless connectivity. The user interface is integrated as an independent concept. The most important displays are located in line of sight of the road above the steering wheel, so that the driver is not distracted. In order to ensure optimal rearward visibility despite the vertical wing on the rear, the interior mirror has been replaced by a screen. It shows real-time recordings from a mirrorcam integrated into the rear. The screen housing is integrated into the roof in a form-fitting manner and houses additional controls.

Mercedes AMG ONE tuning 2022 Premiere 20

Inspired by the Formula 1 racing car, the material contrasts are consistently and authentically continued in the interior. Here, too, the visible carbon fiber of the monocoque forms an attractive contrast with the material/color combination of the seat shells of magma gray nappa leather and black DINAMICA microfibre. With their special design, the seat inlays support air circulation on the driver's back. Yellow contrasting topstitching sets additional accents as standard, but other colors can also be selected. Material-appropriate and high-quality details, such as the ventilation nozzles in silver shadow and dark chrome, set further individual accents. The belt straps and contrasting topstitching in the typical AMG yellow tone underline the performance claim. Customers also have extensive options for very personal individualisation, which can be specified in close consultation with the Mercedes-AMG experts.
