The most anticipated car of the year will soon be revealed.
In just a few days, Mercedes-AMG will be lifting the wraps off the highly anticipated Project One hypercar at the Frankfurt Auto Show after months of anticipation. To build some buzz for the F1-powered hypercar, last week Mercedes-AMG gave us a glimpse of the Project One’s front face and hinted at the car’s phenomenal performance, claiming a top speed exceeding 217 mph. While we’ve seen a few teaser shots of the exterior, we’ve yet to see the Project One’s interior – until now.
Ahead of the show, Mercedes-AMG boss Tobiers Moers has shared a driver’s eye view photo on Instagram from inside the Project One, giving us an idea of what sitting in the driver’s seat behind the wheel of one of the most powerful production cars in the world looks like. The photo confirms that the Project One’s dashboard will have a dual screen setup. Behind the steering wheel we can see a fully digital instrument cluster alongside a large central infotainment screen. Elsewhere, the steering wheel looks to be F1-inspired, and the windshield is suitably large as the previous teaser photo suggested, so at least we know there will be ample forward visibility.
Rear visibility could be another issue entirely, though. As if you need reminding by now, the Project One is powered by the same 1.6-liter V6 from the Mercedes-AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ race car. We fully expect the Project One to steal the show next week when it makes its world debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Only 275 are planned for production with a rumored asking price of $2.4 million, and they’ve all been sold already.
