In the run to the 2017 Frankfurt Auto Show where the new Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar will be revealed the German companies tease us with little bits and bobs of the car, this time showcasing the incredibly sexy chassis and powertrain system of the One. Accompanied by a purely electric and wheel selective front axle drive concept, this drivetrain is expected to develop a combined system power of more than 1,000 hp (735 kW).

Mercedes-AMG Hypercar which is codenamed Project One will be akin in character and probably performance to Aston Martin’s AM-RB 001. Mercedes and Aston, as you know, have entered into a fruitful relationship this year and it makes sense for them to share ideas and technological know-how with the Brits supplying the former and the German taking care of the latter.

At any rate, the Mercedes-AMG Hypercar is said to offer “unadulterated Formula 1 technology for the road,” with a real F1 hybrid powertrain adapted for road use. So although it won’t be a V8 – try 1.6 liter boosted with an electric motor – it will still develop over 1000 hp with four-wheel drive with all-electric front axle. Performance-wise, you can expect the car to deliver the same sort of numbers as the current hybrid hyper cars like LaFerrari or McLaren P1, although we have to say judging by the teasers AMG’s hyper machine is going to look a helluva lot more serious.
