Mercedes-AMG C01 Vision Study Imagines A Sleeker Project One

Mercedes-AMG’s Project One hypercar has a lot of good things going for it, even though it’s far from being a finished product.

Still, some say that it will be able to set a new Nurburgring record, thus dethroning the Porsche 956 and its time of 6 minutes 11.1 seconds. As for power, we expect somewhere between 1,000 and 1,100 horses coming from the F1-derived 1.6-liter turbocharged hybrid powertrain, in turn working alongside a robotized manual 8-speed transmission.

Of course, that’s just “fancy talk” for now, because the production version of the car is yet to be built and one can argue that, given its specs, it should look more aggressive. Now, this C01 Vision render by Invisive represents a different take on a Mercedes-AMG hypercar, one where a greater emphasis has been placed on aesthetics.

Based on the rear-end design alone, we’d wager that such a car (if it was real) would generate enormous amounts of downforce, possibly more than the 675 kg (1,488 lbs) expected from the Project One. Visually, though, this render actually reminds us more of the Aston Martin Valkyrie than the Project One, or at least a sort of mix between the two.

See the original Project One below:

But what do you think? Could Mercedes do a better job at designing a more eye-pleasing hypercar? One could only hope.
