The Mercedes AMG Project One finally drops the camouflage

LISTEN 01:43

The highly-anticipated Mercedes AMG Project One seems to be ready for production. At least, that’s what the latest footage shows, anyway. AMG’s hybrid supercar has been a regular “guest” at the Nurburgring, but this time, the camouflage is off, revealing every detail of its exterior. The only “camouflage” we see here is the motorsport-inspired wrap, but other than that, this is how the production cars will look like once they reach their customers.

We already know that the Formula One-engined car will “land” sometime later this year. Its 1.6-liter twin-turbo V-6 promises 1,050 horsepower. However, rumors suggest that the actual power will be closer to 1,200 horsepower. Because the Formula One engine needed to comply with WLTP regulations, the car was delayed. The AMG Project One was announced back in 2017.

In any case, the One you see in the photos is in its final version and you can see the big rear wing is in “low-speed” mode, as opposed to earlier photos, where a camouflaged One had the wing all the way up.

That one also had the vents on the front fenders open. The final version clearly shows the production LED taillights, as well as the DRLs in the front.

The 217 mph (349 km/h) AMG One will be made in 275 copies and all of them have already been sold. Most of these will probably end up as “garage queens” in the hands of collectors, so seeing one in person is highly unlikely. With that being said, you can still enjoy the photos.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
