Rumors that Mecedes-Benz is working on a hybrid supercar to compete with the likes of the Porsche 918 Spyder have been confirmed. The rumors are all over the place about the specifications, but the car will not likely be seen until at least 2018 and possibly as late as 2020.

Performance speculations are that the car will use a twin-turbocharged AMG V8 that when combined with the electronic motors could produce close to 1,000 horsepower. The 0-60 mph time should be in the mid-2 second range and a top speed of over 200 mph is expected. As for price, if you have to ask, you can’t afford it.

The car sounds like it will be a beast. However, is Mercedes AMG hitting a moving target? The 918 Spyder already produces 887 horsepower and the Ferrari LaFerrari produces 950 horsepower, so if Mercedes shoots to compete with these cars, isn’t it likely that they will have moved on to even more powerful and faster machines?

A new hybrid supercar with an AMG badge would be exciting to see, but the German luxury car maker needs to keep an eye on the future. They need to make sure that they are shooting high enough that when it comes out it hasn’t already been left in the dust.
