The Mercedes AMG Project One finally drops the camouflage

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.
