Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar

Mercedes Benz’s high performance division, AMG, unveiled the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE at the Frankfurt International Motor Show.
It is powered by the 1.6-litre V6 hybrid engine — the very same unit that powers Mercedes Benz’s Formula 1 cars. 1000 horsepower, a top speed in excess of 217 miles per hour, and a 0-124 miles per hour time of just six seconds says it all. These sorts of numbers are made possible by additional electric motors on top of the central hybrid. In total there are four: one in the turbocharger, a second on the combustion engine with a link to the crankcase, and two more on the front wheels.
Just 275 of the cars will be made, the price $2.7 million.
