Mercedes-AMG Project One Hybrid Tech Coming To Series Models Next Decade

Some of the hybrid technology from the Mercedes-AMG Project One will find its way into series production models by 2020 or 2021, the company has confirmed.

Mercedes-AMG boss Tobias Moers has failed to specify exactly which components from the F1-powered hypercar will make their way into lesser models. With that being said, it is unlikely to be the 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine but instead, a similar setup consisting of four electric motors, Autocar suggests.

To create the Project One, Mercedes-AMG has installed one electric motor to drive the turbocharger while a second motor is incorporated into the driveshaft. The third and fourth electric motors sit at the front axle, giving the hybrid hypercar all-wheel drive.

Final specifications for the Project One have yet to be announced as the German marque still has more than 12 months of development left. With that being said, a horsepower figure in the four-figure range is inevitable. Additionally, the hypercar will be capable of sprinting from 0-124 mph (200 km/h) in six seconds flat. A top speed exceeding 218 mph (350 km/h) has also been quoted.

Mercedes is said to be toying with the idea of taking the Project One to the Nurburgring in an attempt to set a new production car lap record.
