Tobias Moers, AMG director of vehicle development, told CarAdvice there won't be a hypercar or a hybrid anytime soon.

Ferrari, Porsche and McLaren can relax for a while as AMG isn't planning a hypercar in the near future. Moers said "no hypercar from AMG", but he did hint at a new model slotted between the C63 and SLS. In addition, we already know a preview (concept) of the SLS replacement will be shown "very soon".

Instead of working on hybrid tech which they say adds weight, AMG will focus its attention on lighter materials derived from what they've learned during SLS AMG Black Series development which will be carried over to lesser AMG models. A lightweight construction and more efficient combustion engines are a top priority at AMG now.
