    Mercedes-AMG Hypercar to Make 1,020 HP, Weigh as Much as a Honda Civic



    Additional details have surfaced about Mercedes-AMG’s new Project One hybrid hypercar ahead of its debut at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

    AMG revealed some basic info about the Formula 1-inspired Project One earlier this year at the Detroit Auto Show, telling reporters it would deliver at least 1,000 horsepower and would be limited to just 275 units. The automaker also took the opportunity in Detroit to divulge details about its powertrain, which will consist of a 1.6-liter turbocharged V6 lifted right from Mercedes’ championship winning Formula 1 cars, numerous electric motors, and a lithium-ion battery pack.

    This latest round of info on the Project One comes via Automobile, which spoke to one of the lucky 275 people purchase one after they attended a briefing about the car. According to the unnamed buyer, the Project One will produce a peak output of 1,020 horsepower. About 748 horsepower will come from the 1.6-liter engine, which will redline at around 11,000 RPM, and another 408 horsepower will come via the electric drive system. There are to be four electric motors in total: Two powering the front wheels, one attached to the crankshaft to power the rear wheels and harvest energy under braking, and one to power the turbo compressor.

    Is it just me or does no one mention this is going to be based on the FIttipaldi Pininfarina exoticar... which was developed in partnership with HWA motorsport which stands for Hans Werner Aufrecht... as in Aufrecht Melcher großaspach ... as in AMG.

    If so... FIRST!
