The heavy metal soundtrack that’s been plucked from the Kerrang music channel is courtesy of a Mercedes AMG’s 6.0-litre V12 – naturally aspirated engine that’s been poked with hot irons to produce a whopping 789bhp and 538lb ft of torque. To put this into perspective that’s 50bhp and 14lb ft more than the Pagani Zonda R. Now that’s keen.
The entire car is proud to weigh less than a Mini Cooper, all down to its weight loss diet of #carbonfibre and a carbotanium tub at its core.
Just some of the copious amounts of carbon fibre Things found on board are, a huge rear diffuser and DRS (drag reduction system), the same as the ones on a blooming Formula One car. And of course the carbon brakes that are 15 % lighter than the R, too, and claim less break fade.
