It’s Official: Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar Coming To Frankfurt

And with this announcement, we have what could very well be the hottest premiere at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show.

Accompanying the short press release is yet another teaser image of spectacular Mercedes-AMG Project One, which reveals its massive fenders and roof scoop, in addition to what appears to be LED headlights, and the ‘AMG’ lettering engraved in the front bumper’s air intake.

As expected, the German hypercar will have seating for two, and it will bring the Formula 1 hybrid technology to the road, producing more than 1,000 horses from the 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine used in the brand’s F1 car.

The internal combustion unit is said to be supplemented by four electric motors, “one for each front wheel, one on the crankshaft, and one in the engine turbocharger”, according to the AMG head honcho, Tobias Moers. In this form, the Project One will be able to reach speeds in excess of 350km/h (217mph), and it should be able to rev up to 11,000 rpm.

Surprisingly, the Mercedes-AMG Project One that will displayed in Frankfurt won’t be the final production version, but rather a near-production prototype, as the automaker refers to it by saying “showcar”.
