Mercedes-AMG One, the high-performance hypercar, is receiving attention from the German automaker as they collaborate with CaDA to create a 1:8 scale model. Designed by renowned designer BrunoJJ1, this model comprises 3,925 interlocking building blocks and offers a level of functional detail.

The 1:8 scale model is 22.4 inches long, 9.6 inches wide, and 6.3 inches tall. It features independent front and rear suspension, shock absorbers, and a functional LED lighting system. Additionally, the scale model is equipped with dual motors for propulsion, and it can be controlled remotely via a remote control.

The design includes attention to detail, such as a longitudinal fin behind the roof air inlet and a wing, although these elements are not functional. The tires on the 10-spoke wheels feature the original Michelin pattern. Notably, the doors and lighting system can also be operated remotely.

The scale model utilizes a propulsion system with two L-motors, each controlled by separate buttons on the remote control. It features a two-speed transmission and simulates the Kinetic Energy Recovery System (KERS) with a pullback motor. This allows owners to move the scale car forward/backward and right/left.

The road-going version of the Mercedes-AMG One boasts a Formula 1-inspired 1.6-liter six-cylinder turbocharged hybrid engine with four electric motors, resulting in a combined output of 1,049 horsepower. The hypercar can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and achieve a top speed of 219 mph. Notably, it currently holds the record as the fastest production car around the Nurburgring, with a lap time of 6:30.705.

While the Mercedes-AMG One is not available in the US due to strict road regulations, car enthusiasts and collectors can appreciate the 1:8 scale model, which can be purchased for $550 from CaDA’s official website. The scale model offers an opportunity to own a detailed and functional representation of the hypercar.

This unique collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and CaDA allows fans to experience the hypercar’s design and performance in a smaller, more accessible form.
