Mercedes-Benz has quickly found takers for a pricey supercar that the general public has never even seen yet.
The luxury car maker stopped compiling a list of potential U.S. Project One buyers on March 17, according to Road & Track. The amount of Project Ones slated for the U.S. is scheduled to be revealed in May. Only about 275 will be built.
The Project One could cost close to $2.4 million when first deliveries begin in mid-2018. Mercedes plans to unveil the full car at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September.
For what a rich car freak would be getting in the Project One, however, the price is understandable.
The Project One is expected to have a hybrid power-train pulled from F1 racing, boasting a turbocharged 1.6 litre V6 engine. Output will reportedly be close to 1,000 horsepower. Power will go to all four wheels, with the front axle being driven by electric motors.

Allegedly, the Mercedes AMG HyperCar will look something like this and have a F1 based TTV6 hybrid engine with some unique / trick technology that will require the owners to send the car back to England for an engine rebuild every so many miles. If this photo is accurate and if it will feature a Twin Turbo V6 F1 engine modified for road use, What are your thoughts? I can't wait for to see the hyper MercedesAMG Project One vs the Aston Martin Valkyrie and the McLaren BP23. Very exciting times ahead! ���������� (please note : this is NOT an official rendering of the Mercedes Project One) _______________________________________________________________ #Mercedes #ProjectOne #MercedesProjectOne #MercedesAMG #TTV6 #HPP #AstonMartin #AstonMartinLive #Valkyrie #RedBull #AstonMartinValkyrie #Nebula #CLKGTR #HyperCars #Bugatti #Koenigsegg #Pagani #Porsche #Lamborghini #Ferrari #McLaren #BP23 #SCG003 #ScuderiaCameronGlickenhaus #BecauseRaceCar #F1 #BLESSED
