Mercedes-AMG One Owners Hand Imprint Needed For Driving Gloves

FEB 19 2019 BY JACOB OLIVA 14

Plus, now we know how much the deposit is for the AMG hypercar.

The Mercedes-AMG One is a stunning hypercar that’s set to bring F1 technology to the road. With a 1.6-liter V6 and three electric motors powering up the car, its owners are assured of a momentous driving experience every time they spend time behind the steering wheel. And of course, what accessory is best suited to enhance that driving experience than a pair of driving gloves – and Mercedes-AMG sure knows how to make it the most exclusive for the AMG One’s future owners.

In the video above, you could see that one of the future AMG One owners was sent with a box with a template for hand imprint. The instruction is to imprint the owner’s hand onto it so AMG could make the perfect pair of gloves. Now that’s exclusivity to the $2.7-million hypercar.

And oh, it was also mentioned in the video that the AMG One’s reservation is 500,000 euros or roughly $565,000 at the current exchange rates. That’s just the deposit, mind you.

As detailed in a past video, the AMG One is set to rule the road with its F1-derived hybrid powertrain setup, along with its aerodynamic-obsessed and weight-obsessed bodywork. Even the three-pointed star emblem up front will be air-brushed onto the car to lessen wind resistance. While that sounds bonkers, the center spine of the 1,000+ horsepower hypercar optimizes the airflow before it even hits the rear wing, increasing the efficiency.

While the world is waiting, and the 275 people who have paid for their build slots, the AMG One production car isn’t set to roll off the assembly line until mid-2020. This is because Mercedes-AMG is facing a roadblock in taming the F1-derived engine. That can be a bummer for everyone, but the world could really wait for this amazing hypercar to hit the road.

Gotta have some clever gimmicks to snooker hundreds of thousands of dollars out of people for such “supercars”.

Ah yes, these stupid rich people that buy expensive cars that they can in turn flip for a lot more money than what they originally paid for. Such a terrible deal for them, they must be just dumb as a rock

How many craps do I give about this car? NONE!

Too bad. If you gave at least one crap, Mercedes could have made an imprint of it. 😉

It’s a lot of show for a car that won’t do 0-60 in any less time than the new Tesla Roadster will for a small fraction of the price. Guess it has become difficult to still impress people in an age in which electric drive has sort of trivialized hypercar performance.

What a goofy gimmick- so that insecure wealthy folks feel even more exclusive.

Wow, for the low price of 10x as much as my entire house costs you can have yourself a pair of custom driving gloves.

Oh, and a car that performs about as well as another one that costs 10% as much.

How’s the warranty on this vehicle? I’d expect no less than having everything covered for 1M miles and 50 years. At the prices you’re paying, it’d be insane to have the expectation that you’d ever have to pay another car related penny again.

I bet that waranty is short. Special cars like this and others cost a TONN of money to keep and maintain. Usually there are some kind of service agreements that is mandatory and super expensive as well. Those who buy this car don’t even notice the price. It’s exclusive, and it’s something very few people can afford. It’s the same with people who buy a custom made watch that cost the same as a nice house for example. We have two Ferraries in the club, and one is so special that the normal club insurance is not enough. Parts are insane. The brake discs cost the same as a new cheap car. . Each. I think the car is really cool and all – and I think it’s cool Mercedes makes a car like this. Even though it’s expensive – they make it because they can and will, and not for profit. The cost to develop this car is expensive. I have to be happy with a poster of this in my lab or garage 😊 If I had a billion dollar, I would have started to think about a car like this. . and then I would have bought… Read more »

Insert small hands joke here….

You have to hand it to them…

What an ingenoius solution to a problem that should have never existed

Just think how much wall you could build. 😳

I can’t believe the trolls with “Tesla is or will be faster” came here also.

Quite the challenge to get a hand imprint given it would be otherwise employed. 👋
