Mercedes-AMG Teases Project One with Last Teaser Pics before Launch


Published Date : Sep 11, 2017

Mercedes-AMG Project ONE has released a teaser for one last time before it hits debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show on Tuesday. The hybrid hypercar that blends the Formula One technology has borne the £2.4 million price tag with a major spending being allotted to its 1,000 hp, F1-spec 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 engine boasting of an 11,000 rpm. The German automaker has confirmed the car’s top speed of a 217 mph.

One of the teaser images released has given a tip-off of a deep infuser. Above the rear-mounted engine bay, the image has showcased a shark gill-like louvres and wild air intakes. Furthermore, a single exhaust could be seen with two smaller outlets below it. The exhaust has been framed by triple LED tail lights.

Mercedes F1 Driver Spices up Things with another Teaser

2017 Belgian Grand Prix winner, Lewis Hamilton has also teased Mercedes-AMG Project ONE, posting an image while sitting behind a rectangular steering wheel. The image appears to give an impression of a digital dashboard directly mounted looking onto the driver and side-by-side front seats in tombstone style. It also appears in the image that the supercar has no rear window, perhaps answering why there appears to be no rear-vision mirror either.

Mercedes-AMG and its F1 race team based in the U.K. have made a collaborative effort to manufacture Project ONE. The car has been anticipated to help celebrate the make’s 50th anniversary in 2017. It has been estimated that all the 275 pieces built are already sold. Late 2018 could see the first deliveries of the car, at the time when rival Aston Martin’s Valkyrie would start its deliveries.
