The AMG Project One will do more than 217mph(350kmph)

Mercedes-AMG has just released a few juicy details about their upcoming mega car, the Project One. Specifically, AMG has confirmed that the car will have a top speed of more than 350kmph(217mph).
That's as fast as that bonkers LaFerrari, and faster even then the mad P1 and the 918 Spyder
Also the total power output will stand at over 1000hp, of which about 750 will be from that mad mad 1.6 V6, which will spin to a crazy 11000rpm redline.  They've also released this front-on teaser image of the highly anticipated hypercar.

A formula 1 car for the road has been an eternal dream since the race cars became ever so exotic and track specials. McLaren tried it with their F1. Ferrari try it with their top hypercars. And there have always been the mental Caparo T1s and Ariel Atoms. But perhaps this is the closest any sane driver(with enough money and influence, that is) will ever get to own one. This is perhaps the most unadulterated spirit that has made its way to the road from the distillery of  Formula 1. Or maybe that'll be the Aston Martin Red Bull Valkyrie? Great times we live in...

An unofficial render

The Mercedes-AMG Project One (stylized as ONE) is an upcoming production sports car that will be powered by Formula 1 technology. It will be launched at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. As it does have a F1 powertrain, it will become the first to do so. Quite a step up from AMG's previous inhouse car, AMG GT

Although looking like a F1-inspired sports car with a strong character, Mercedes-AMG boss, Tobias Moers, says the car's main character is to be a sports car with full comfort on the road.

The Project One's is currently being evaluated by its performance, durability, and ability in Mercedes-Benz's proving grounds and on racing circuits. Tobias Moers also says when "the time is right", Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 driver Lewis Hamilton will be testing the prototypes.

In April 16, 2017, the Project One became sold out for the United States. 

It will compete with the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the Ariel HIPERCAR,, perhaps the Koenigsegg Regera and the upcoming exotics from McLarenFerrari and Porsche.

The Project One will be competing alongside the Aston Martin Valkyrie, and unnamed sports cars by Audi and BMW.

Not a lot is known about the design, but Mercedes-Benz's teaser images of the car shows the car will have an LMP1-inspired exterior design. Later, in April 2017, Mercedes-AMG revealed the car will have doors that will be very distinct compared to regular high-performance cars.

The interior has not been shown yet.
