At the Frankfurt Motor Show Mercedes introduced a novelty, which has been rumored for a long time, but until now there has been virtually no specific information. As representatives of the company said at the presentation, Mercedes-AMG Project ONE became the first racing car, adapted to the public roads.

At the moment this is the only hypercar in the world, combining so many technological novelties. If we talk about the engine, it is worth noting that the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept has at its disposal a hybrid power plant with a 1.6-liter V6 unit. He is well acquainted with everyone who follows the "royal" races, because it was such a block that was put on the car Mercedes-AMG W06 Hybrid a couple of years ago.

The steel heart of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept is capable of delivering up to 11,000 rpm. This is not the limit for the engine, but the maximum load can not be given - engineers have limited power to increase the "survivability" of the power plant. "Feeds" Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept exclusively fuel with an octane rating of at least 98. And the front wheels of the hypercar rotate two electric motors with a total capacity of more than 320 hp.

For the switching of speeds in the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept the robotic AMG Performance 4MATIC + transmission with eight speeds is used.

The concept is distinguished by improved aerodynamics, which not only adds stability to the car, but also helps to cool the engine. Also, to improve handling at high speeds, the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept is equipped with a retractable front aerodynamic splitter and air intakes that open automatically.

But the interior of the hypercar is truly spartan and minimalistic. But without already become standard for modern auto air conditioning and electric windows has not been. Also there is a pair of 10-inch monitors.

An interesting feature of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept can be called the fact that the two seats are fixed firmly and allow you to adjust only the inclination of the backrest. However, this will not become an inconvenience to the buyers, since the steering wheel and the pedals can be adjusted for themselves.

Well, in the end of all of the above, you can not talk about the characteristics of this racing "monster". The total engine power of the Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept is more than 1000 hp. Acceleration from zero to 200 km/h takes less than six seconds, and the maximum machine produces up to 350 km/h. If during the ride you forget to refuel, then you can reach the column by electric traction. On it, the car can drive up to 25 km.

According to the company, only 275 Mercedes-Benz AMG Project ONE Concept will see the light. The cost of the car in the basic equipment is 2 700 00 euros.
