Mercedes-AMG Project One Dazzles The Crowds In Tokyo

Mercedes-Benz and AMG are providing a glimpse into the future of mobility with a range of premieres shown for the first time on the Asian continent.

The most exciting, by far, is the Mercedes-AMG Project One, which debuted last month, during the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, and it’s currently on display in Tokyo, where it will remain until November 5.

Developed using Formula One technology, the two-seater hypercar has a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine and four electric motors. These work together to produce a total output in excess of 1,000hp, propelling it from 0 to 200km/h (124mph) in less than 6 seconds, and onto a top speed of more than 350km/h (217mph).

The first production examples of the impressive Mercedes-AMG Project One will hit the roads in 2019, and all 275 units have been spoken for, despite coming at €2.27 million ($2.67 million) each.

Joining the exotic hypercar at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show is the GLC F-Cell, which enters its pre-production phase. It combines fuel-cell and battery technology in the form of a PHEV, and it can travel for up to 437km (miles) on hydrogen, in the NEDC, and up to 49km (miles) on electricity.

Slotting into Mercedes-Benz‘s compact vehicle family is the Concept EQA, which was first shown in Frankfurt last month. It’s also displayed in Tokyo as we speak, where it parades its Sensual Purity design language, two electric motors, permanent AWD system and its ability to travel for approximately 400km (miles) in between charges.

Last,  is the Smart Vision EQ ForTwo, a self-driving EV concept version of the city car, which falls under the EQ brand. Built with car sharing in mind, the small study has a futuristic exterior design, and no controls in the cabin, as it can be operated via smartphone, or voice input.

    The car is stunning from all angles outside of the front. The headlights, bumper, and front end in total truly lets this car’s looks down. If they could tweak it before production I can help but think that would be wise.

      IKR.. what’s up with the front end? The massive air intakes and the light treatment is unattractive

    • Vassilis

      I suspect it’s heavily aero-driven. Maybe after some more development they can improve it.

  • klowik

    I don’t find the Project One stunning, the styling is like it’s from a decade ago.

    • Mynameis Taylor

      I agree. it’s the front. the lights and number is just really unattractive

  • Six_Tymes

    meh. The EQA is fantastic.

  • Vassilis

    Based on spy pics of the new A-Class, it may look similar to the EQA and that’s great news.
