Mercedes-AMG Working On R50 Hypercar !
Rumors have been circulating for the past several weeks that Mercedes-AMG is working on a hypercar to rival the upcoming AM-RB 001 being developed by Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing. Now we have a fewmore details of what we might expect.
According to Automobile’s Georg Kacher, the project known internally as R50 is slated to bridge the gap between a road-going supercar and a Le Mans prototype. It’s curb weight is expected to come in under 2,900 pounds, which would make it significantly lighter than the McLaren P1 (3,285 lbs), LaFerrari (3,500 lbs), or Porsche 918 Spyder (3,600 lbs).
