Final Teaser of the Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar

Final Teaser of the Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar

The Project One is as close to a Formula 1 vehicle for the road than any other auto in production today and even features a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 engine similar to the Mercedes-AMG F1 auto.

A two-seater supersports showcar, Project One is billed as bringing the very latest fully-fledged Formula 1 hybrid technology to the consumer market.

The Project One could cost close to $2.4 million when first deliveries begin in mid-2018. "At the same time, Project ONE provides an outlook on how AMG will define driving performance in the future", Tobias Moers explains as the Head of Management at Mercedes-AMG GmbH.

Underneath its impressive skin and stunning aggressive robe, the Project One also features an all-wheel-drive transmission with an electrified front axle enabling a top speed estimated to surpass 350 km/h.

The four electric motors will use energy from a lithium-ion battery.

Even Tesla's (TSLA) Elon Musk should be impressed by a new Mercedes-Benz hypercar coming to market soon. That's around the same figure as Lewis Hamilton's race auto, and enough, says Mercedes-AMG, to hurl the Project One from standstill to 200km/h in less than six seconds. The steering wheel, as with Formula One, is where a driver controls numerous vehicle's key performance functions.

A hydraulically actuated eight-speed automated manual paddleshift, by motorsport specialists Xtrac. Its output is supplanted by three 120 kW electric motors, one mounted directly to the engine as well as two additional motors on the front axle, each driving a front wheel for a combined power output of at least 1,000 horsepower. The amusing bit is that the model will also feature and all-electric driving mode, during which it will become the first ever FWD hypercar, since only the front axle will receive power.

Mercedes-AMG claims this will be a vehicle that is driveable everyday, and to that end has included two compartments for storage inside the cabin behind the seats, an air conditioning system, power windows, and a version of its COMAND infotainment system. A hypercar with an F1 engine that can be driven on the road, simple as that.

Inside the two-place cabins, the seats themselves are integrated into the monocoque and yet have adjustable backrests. While sparse, the interior features two high-resolution 10-inch displays as well as a third screen acting as a rear view mirror.

Safety As many as 12 pre-production prototypes will be crash-tested in the European Union and US.
