At Mercedes-AMG there is a considerable delay as far as Project One is concerned, but it is that introducing a Formula 1 engine in a production vehicle is not turkey mucus. Luckily, it seems that the launch date of the hypercar is slowly approaching, and today AMG delights us with a video of the Project One on the track.
Thanks to this, we can hear in action its powerful 1.6-liter V6 engine, which is the same engine that has driven the AMG team’s Formula 1 car for several seasons. Capable of accelerating to 11,000 rpm on the highway, it should develop more than 1,000 hp of power and exceed 350 km / h.
The adaptation of a complete Formula 1 powertrain for a road homologated hypercar which, together with its impressive driving dynamics on the track must also be usable on a day-to-day basis and even in 100% electric mode, is representing a tremendous challenge by brand.
Development work on Project One has paid particular attention to active aerodynamics. The complex interplay between the various active components, such as the slats, the air vents located in the front fenders or the large rear aerodynamic profile, confirm its effectiveness even outside the wind tunnel.
