BRINGING F1 TO THE ROAD
The Mercedes-AMG Project ONE celebrated its world premiere at the 2017 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt: the two-seater show car, for the first time, brings the very latest and efficient, fully-fledged Formula 1 hybrid technology to the road. This high-performance hybrid has an output of over 746 kW (1,000 hp) and a top speed exceeding 350 km/h and combines outstanding racetrack performance with day-to-day-suitable Formula 1 hybrid technology and excellent efficiency. Much of the complex development work that went into the development of the Project One, was carried out in close cooperation with the Formula One experts at the Mercedes-AMG high-performance development centres in Brixworth and with the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport team in Brackley. Driven onto the Mercedes-Benz stage at the 2017 IAA by Formula One world champion, Lewis Hamilton, the Project One drew mixed reactions from the assembled crowd. Some criticised its seemingly unclear design language, while others celebrated its originality. All we know is that this car promises to bring a new level of driving performance to Mercedes-AMG fans when the first production vehicles are delivered during the first half of 2019.
