AMG has announced a hypercar is not in the works as Mercedes-Benz's high-performance division wants to focus on the volume segment.

Yesterday we heard AMG CEO Tobias Moers saying there are going to be additional derivatives of the AMG GT, a model which is programmed to live on for at least two generations. Now, Moers says AMG is not planning a hypercar to act as a true successor to the SLR or SLS as they want to focus on the volume segment.

Moers did confirm a higher performance variant (likely Black Series) of the AMG GT but don't expect a proper hypercar to take on the LaFerrari, 918 Spyder, P1 trio. He went on to say that "it's not helpful to have a hundred hypercars done in a year and nobody sees them on the road. It's very important to see your brand on the road."

AMG's boss believes the company will be more successful by launching "more approachable" sports cars built in a more considerable volume rather than a limited-run high-priced hypercar like the aforementioned SLR.
