Someone’s Already Selling A Build Slot For The Mercedes-AMG Project One

The Mercedes-AMG Project One has yet to hit the assembly lines, but an example is already listed for sale priced at €4.51 million, or $5.23 million at today’s exchange rates.

The seller is a dealership based in Munich, Germany, and in the ad posted on Mobile, they mention that the Formula 1-inspired hypercar will be delivered in Q2, 2019.

If the facts are correct, then they have probably secured an official build spot for the Project One, and are looking to make some quick cash off the machine, which will be offered, officially, from €2.27 million ($2.63 million).

However, there’s always the possibility of a scam, or even some false advertising, so if you have that much cash lying around, then you should read the papers very carefully, before making any deposits that would allegedly reserve an AMG Project One of your own.

Billed as the world’s first road legal car with an F1 powertrain, the Mercedes-AMG Project One will be made in just 275 examples, and all of them have been spoken for. The first production units are expected no sooner than mid-2019, when they will amaze with their hybrid powertrain that combines a 1.6-liter V6 internal combustion engine, with four electric motors, for a total output in excess of 1,000hp.

    This is exactly what Aston Martin said they wouldn’t allow with the Valkyrie and for good reason.

    Geez guys! Do you really think someone with the kind of cash to buy a car like this will 1)be reading this crap site and taking financial advice from it? and 2)if they DO read it, blindly sign a contract for $5.23M without having several lawyers look it over and advise them?
    You seriously need to ramp up the editor search and fast! Preferably someone older than 25 and with more experience with writing.

        Have you read some of the articles they post here? Anything that doesn’t involve cars is other unrelated nonsense meant to generate clicks. A good/bad example of this was that story they ran about the topless Russian lady who got killed sticking her head out of a moving vehicle.

        Sometimes they don’t even bother proofreading.

        Salamondrin himself is a disaster. Completely unlikeable and unwatchable.

    This is such an amazing machine that this sort of speculative flipping is a crime as it sadly results in these sitting in storage, plastic still on the seats and other trim. That means we never get to see them in the flesh cruising down the street. Can’t the manufacturers deter this somehow?
