Mercedes-Benz AMG One reaches production at last
Mercedes-AMG has finally started the assembly lines of its ultimate hypercar – the One – in Great Britain, accompanying the launch with some photos straight out of the factory and interesting technicalities.
For example, every assembled car must pass 16 tests and checks before shipment. Individual units and systems are initially put together and launched on test stands to ensure proper operation, then disassembled and reassembled in production cars.
The internal combustion engine additionally passes an endurance test that ensures its long-term reliability. This is a practice normally applied to all Formula 1 engines.
As well, every finished hypercar is first placed inside a sprinkler chamber imitating heavy monsoon rain, after which it makes several laps on the company’s proving grounds. Only if all tests succeed flawlessly, the vehicle is packaged and shipped to the AMG headquarters in Germany for further delivery.
