Concept Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed unveiled in Monaco World Premiere

Exciting, energising and breathtaking – in a world premiere, Lewis and George unveiled the Concept Mercedes‑AMG PureSpeed in the Monaco harbour before the F1 race this weekend.

In the exclusive setting on a floating pontoon on the sidelines of the Monaco Grand Prix, Lewis and George kicked off race week in the most exciting way, launching the first car from the historic Mythos series.

A radically designed, completely open, two-seater performance car without a roof or windscreen is a tribute to motor racing and a preview of the first model in the highly limited Mercedes-Benz Mythos series iconic cars for car lovers, connoisseurs and collectors.

The PureSpeed celebrates the unique tradition of Mercedes-Benz with an uncompromising race car design, inspired by some of the most iconic race cars in our history: The 1924 Targa Florio racecar, the 300 SLR driven by Sir Stirling Moss in the 1955 Mille Miglia, the Mercedes-AMG ONE hypercar and modern day F1 cars.

It celebrates the unique tradition of Mercedes‑Benz with pure and uncompromising race-car design, innovative materials and modern technology.

With just 250 units to be manufactured, the PureSpeed will only be available to the most dedicated Mercedes‑Benz enthusiasts and collectors.

Inspired by legendary race cars, the combination of unrivalled racing aesthetics and highly dynamic performance makes the Concept Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed a unique driving machine for connoisseurs.

“The Concept Mercedes-AMG PureSpeed offers a glimpse of what is probably the purest way to experience performance and driving pleasure,” said Michael Schiebe, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

“Radically open, neither a roof nor the windscreen separate the two passengers from the elements. You can experience light, air and passion unfiltered with all your senses.

“As the concept of our first Mythos vehicle, it embodies the highest level of exclusivity. Design elements such as the halo also create a Formula 1 feeling. There is therefore no better place for its world premiere than Monaco.”
