Mercedes presents the F1 powered AMG Project ONE on the track

Any chance we get to see the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE is a chance we’ll take and the brand has just released its latest clip.

The short, 43-second-long video shows the ONE on track in its now-familiar silver and red camouflaged livery. We last saw the car looking like this when Sir Lewis Hamilton drove it in December.

“I can still hardly believe that there will soon be a hypercar with a Formula 1 engine,” said Hamilton at the time. “We won the world championship with this engine in 2015, and I was involved in its development for a long time. I was able to drive the Project One during the film work for the new campaign, and I’m very proud of the extraordinary effort Mercedes-AMG has invested in this project. This car is absolutely unique.”

The ONE will feature an engine that should be familiar for Sir Lewis since it’s the same 1.6-liter V6 that has powered his F1 car to six world championships. Revving up to 11,000 RPM in road-trim, the engine should produce more than 1,000 metric horsepower and a top speed of more than 217 mph.

Mercedes-AMG is highlighting the electrified aspect of the car, which makes sense. As in F1, the ONE uses electric motors to achieve its ridiculous performance figures.

The F1-car-for-the-road was initially supposed to debut in mid-2020 but delays have meant that an exact launch date is a little unclear at this point. Regardless, Mercedes-AMG has filled all 250 build slots, despite its $2.5 million price tag.
