Mercedes-AMG Project One rear design unveiled

Mercedes-AMG doesn't yet have a fully complete running prototype of the Project One - one where it is testing all of the components together in a single vehicle - but it is, obviously, thinking about what the auto ought to be like to drive; other than being apocalyptically fast and absurdly light, anyway. The Project ONE is everything you'd want from a ludicrous vehicle that sounds like a concept, but will actually be produced and sold.

Only 275 units will be ever built, and rumor has it that all of them have been spoken for even before the Project One's public reveal, despite a hefty $2 million+ price tag. On top of that, Project One will feature two 120KW electric motors on the front axle, giving it all-wheel drive capability that the Formula One auto does not have.

The auto uses a lithium-ion battery pack that can be recharged by kinetic energy recovery from braking and coasting, and by more traditional plug-in methods. With a system output of over 1,000 hp and a top speed beyond 217 miles per hour (350 km/h) this hypercar handles exactly as it looks: "it takes your breath away", Ola Källenius says, Member of the Daimler AG Board of Management responsible for Group Research and Mercedes-Benz Cars Development. The transmission can be fully automated or shifted like a traditional manual transmission. The engine will power the rear wheels with the help of an electric motor while a second rear mounted electric motor will help power the turbocharger itself.

You're looking at around 30,000 miles before the engine needs maintenance - a figure that's easier to swallow when you consider that an F1 engine is created to be rebuilt every four to five races.

Mercedes-AMG released full details of its much-anticipated Project One today. The steering wheel, as with Formula One, is where a driver controls numerous vehicle's key performance functions. It scores the same F1 hybrid technology from the race track and is a fitting tribute to celebrate AMG's 50 anniversary.

Inside the two-place cabins, the seats themselves are integrated into the monocoque and yet have adjustable backrests. A third screen acts as a rear view mirror and is linked to a camera at the back of the vehicle. This intake is one of many prominent vents that contribute both to cooling the powertrain and improving the Project One's aerodynamic efficiency.

Being a hybrid means the Project One makes good use of its power.
