Mercedes-AMG One Now Available in Forza Horizon 5

Giancarlo Perlas August 25, 2021

The arrival of the next-gen gaming console Xbox Series S/X means new titles are also coming our way. One of the much-anticipated games exclusive to the said console and Microsoft PC players is the Forza Horizon 5, and its new poster boy happens to be the upcoming Mercedes-AMG One or Mercedes-AMG Project One in its concept car form.

The new trailer of the series is jacked up with its amazing graphics, seemingly seamless virtual driving dynamics, and revamped collection of vehicles, which is highlighted by the AMG One. The entry of the hypercar in Forza is a product of the collaboration of Microsoft through its Xbox Game Studios and Mercedes.

The AMG One in Forza features a red paint with special livery. Whether or not the same bodywork will be offered in the real world when the overdue car will finally hit the market remains to be seen.

As we all know by now, the AMG One is based on the Formula One car of Mercedes AMG Petronas. It was unveiled in 2017 but setbacks have pushed its market rollout farther down the line, and customers who pre-ordered the $2.53 million car are yet to get their hands on it.

The hypercar is only limited to 275 samples. It is powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine partnered with four electric motors following the layout of the Silver Arrows race cars. The mild-hybrid setup produces up to 1,000 hp taking the top speed of the vehicle to 217 mph. The configuration launches the auto from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds.

The developers of Forza Horizon 5 claimed that they have replicated the Mercedes-AMG One all the way down to its active aerodynamics to provide utmost immersion to gamers.
