Earlier this year, Mercedes-AMG has already given out a few features of its upcoming hypercar, known as the Project One. Today, we can officially and finally take a look at how the car all comes together. Based on its look, it could make fans and car enthusiasts really insane to buy it.

Project One Hypercar F1 Specs Revealed

The production sub-brand of Mercedes-Benz already released a new teaser for the upcoming Project One. According to CNET, the automaker will put out more than 1,000 horsepower on the vehicle. This is made possible because of a plug-in hybrid system that matches a 1.6-liter gas V6 to all four electric motors.

These four electrical engines are the two driving motors located on the front axle and another two integrated machines into the powertrain out back. Three of the said motors have an output of about 161 horsepower. Isn't it amazing for a car like this? Aside from that, the engine, which is mounted midship, also sports an extensive air intake up top that will integrate into the whole body of the vehicle.

The lithium-ion battery of the Project One Hypercar sits low and flat located behind the front axle. According to The Drive, the litany of electronic components are stuck between its engine and the battery. This component is the same with the 2015 Mercedes-AMG Formula 1 car.

In addition to that, Mercedes-AMG Project One Hypercar has a turbocharger, which is split in two with each part dwelling on either side of the engine block, attached to a shaft that runs through the engine's V. Unlike any other road car existing today, the new car is ultra powerful since the automaker made this with the greatest technology. If you've wanted a Formula 1 car for the road, this is about as close as you're going to get.
