Mercedes-AMG Project ONE revealed: 1000hp road vehicle with 11000rpm V6

Essentially, Project One units will include hybrid components from Mercedes' Formula 1 race vehicles and their powertrains, and they will be capable of reaching speeds close to 350 km/h while generating 1,000 horsepower.

Additionally, Mercedes installed two electric motors, each producing more than 161 horsepower, on the front axle of the Project One, thereby giving it a virtual all-wheel-drive system with true torque-vectoring capabilities.

"It elevates the standard for what is technically possible to a whole new level with a combination of performance and efficiency that is the absolute benchmark", said Moers.

It will go into limited production of just 275 units each costing $2.54 million. Instead of a rear-view mirror, for example, the Project One has a screen that shows real-time images from a mirror cam to improve visibility behind the auto.

Moving on to the chassis, inboard pushroad suspension coilovers work the wheels and the 8-speed automated-manual transaxle is a stressed member, holding the rear suspension.

Each front wheel has a 120-kilowatt electric motor that allows the fully-electric front axle allows to independently distribute power to either wheel.

The official line is that "The Project One team is working hard on successfully bringing this vision onto the road", and Mercedes-Benz Australia says our first examples will arrive in time for Christmas in 2019.

A digital screen takes the place of the rear-view mirror, providing real- time video of the rear view via a system called MirrorCam. There are also four electric motors: one directly connected to the engine's crankcase, one integrated to the turbocharger, and one powering each of the front wheels. And, to keep the polar bears happy, up to 25km of all-electric driving range.

The electric motors on the front axle are also true rev wonders, with rotor revolutions up to 50,000 rpm - current state of the art is a speed of 20,000 rpm. The engine's crankshaft is attached to an electric motor that can virtually eliminate turbo lag while generating electricity by harnessing the engine's kinetic energy.

It can also recuperate up to 80 per cent of its braking energy, with each electric motor having its own floor-mounted power-electronics unit. The plug-in hybrid system has been lifted right out of a Formula 1 vehicle, and features a complex 8-speed "manual" gearbox allowing for automatic cruising or paddle-shifting.

Active aerodynamic aids, too, are critical to the Project One's quest for F1-like performance. The auto rides on 19-inch wheels up front, 20-inch wheels at the rear. Because what's the point of a hypercar if you can't impress your friends with it. "Open the door, hit the start button, drive away". You'll find two real racing buckets and a pair of 10-inch displays that focus on driving and performance data. Even though we knew it was coming the reality of how it's gone about it is pretty wonderful.
