Mercedes-AMG Project ONE spied testing at Nürburgring
Are you still excited or is the hype dead?
The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE concept was unveiled back in 2017, which seems like quite a while ago. However, deliveries are set to take place later this year so an official debut of the production car should be around the corner. Our friends over at Carscoops captured the German hypercar at the Nürburgring undergoing some tests and it looks rather promising.

For starters, all the styling elements from the 2017 concept seem to be intact with the exception of the front canards, which have been swapped for less aggressive ones in spied vehicle. Even the cabin is identical in layout to the concept. From the track-ready steering wheel to the angled infotainment screen, everything seems to be in place... if you ignore all the testing equipment and wiring.
The Project One will utilise a 1.6L turbocharged V6 and four electric motors to produce between 1000-1200hp according to estimates. Some aspects of the powertrain had to be reengineered in order to meet fuel consumption and CO2 (WLTP) regulations. With F1 technology packed into this road-legal racer, it's not difficult to see why all 275 units were sold for $2.72 million USD a pop.
