Mercedes-AMG reveals 1000bhp, 217mph 'Project One' road-legal F1 vehicle

According to Mercedes-AMG, the powertrain comes directly from Formula 1 with a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 engine combined with four electric motors. We are drawing on our experiences and successes from three constructors' and drivers' world championships to bring Formula One technology to the road for the first time: "in Mercedes-AMG Project One". However, it won't come cheap - the Project One is priced at an eye-watering $2.53 million dollars.

The Project One completes the run from 0-to-125 miles per hour in less than six seconds, according to Mercedes.

In addition to previewing an upcoming AMG product, the brand says the Project One is also an exercise in learning more about plug-in hybrid performance models and suspension components. Power is stored in lithium-ion batteries, and Zetsche says that up to 80 percent of braking energy can be recuperated from the front wheels to the batteries.

Mercedes-AMG have released one final teaser of the AMG Project One hypercar ahead of its big debut on Monday. The transmission can be fully automated or shifted like a traditional manual transmission.

Will not go against sentiments of people: Rajnath on Art 35-A
Rajnath Singh arrived in Srinagar on Sunday on a four-day visit to the territory. "There are no issues left that is why such issues are being raised".

While Project One might look a little more than a classic Le Mans prototype than the F1 Silver Arrow Hamilton is used to driving, he noted they have a lot in common under the sheet metal and carbon fiber.

The interior on the vehicle is very basic and features a squarish steering wheel with a set of screens to feed information to the driver. Our highly efficient hybrid assembly stems from motor racing and the electrically powered front axle generates a fascinating mixture of performance and efficiency. A hypercar with an F1 engine that can be driven on the road, simple as that. And since the auto weighs just 1000 kg, the Project One gets a 1:1 power to weight ratio (hence the name). It marks yet another pinnacle of the successful, strategic development of Mercedes-AMG towards a performance and sports vehicle brand. There's a reversing camera on the roof, displayed in the rear-view mirror.

Mercedes-AMG claims this will be a auto that is driveable everyday, and to that end has included two compartments for storage inside the cabin behind the seats, an air conditioning system, power windows, and a version of its COMAND infotainment system.

Pretty much everything about the AMG Project One will be cutting edge.
