Mercedes-AMG One Gets A 1:18 Scale Motorized Building Blocks Replica

Giancarlo Perlas October 12, 2023

The Mercedes-AMG One is a very rare specimen in the offerings of the three-pointed star marque. With only 275 units ever made and have found their way into collectors as well as a $2.75 million price tag, it is no longer within reach of buyers. Despite that, the hypercar developed a major fanbase that’s why it was also featured in video games, and now, it’s available in 1:18 scale from CaDa.

The Mercedes-AMG One collectible by CaDa, consisting of 3,295 meticulously designed interlocking building blocks, stands as a tribute to the original super sports car. It features the vehicle’s iconic longitudinal fin, retractable rear wing, and unmistakable body design complete with miniature Michelin tires. This masterpiece combines design artistry with precision and attention to detail, giving enthusiasts an opportunity to own a piece of this automotive perfection on a small scale.

Measuring 57 centimeters in length, 24.5 centimeters in width, and 16 centimeters in height, the Mercedes-AMG One collectible is not just a static display. It happens to be a fully motorized marvel with independent front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, and working LED lighting to capture the essence of the original. Meanwhile, the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) is emulated with pullback motors, and it even boasts a two-speed transmission – a rare feature among interlocking building block models.

The Mastermind Behind the Beauty

For designer BrunoJJ1, the journey of creating this collectible was both a challenge and an honor. The process began with meticulous attention to the chassis, engine, and wheel suspension, followed by the exterior design. This attention to detail ensures that each collectible is as close as possible to the original vehicle, thanks in part to the 3D-printed prototypes provided by CaDA.

The Complete Package

The Mercedes-AMG One collectible package is a treasure for enthusiasts. It includes a Pro L-motor, a Pro servo motor, a receiver/battery box, a set of lights, a remote control with steering wheel control, and comprehensive illustrated building instructions. Packaged in high-quality packaging, it’s a testament to the precision and craftsmanship that defines this magnificent collectible.

The Mercedes-AMG One Hypercar

The Mercedes-AMG One that the replica is based on boasts a system output of 1,063 horsepower within a hybrid powertrain. Its turbocharged petrol engine and four electric motors combine to create unparalleled performance.

The hypercar comes with a plug-in hybrid technology sourced from Formula 1 cars that sets new standards both on and off the racetrack. With a distinctive body design and advanced aerodynamics, it’s a marvel of automotive engineering that inspired this 1:18 scale collectible.
