Mercedes-AMG was talking up a new hypercar that it will be building during the Geneva auto show. The car is known as Project One and it uses a lot fo F1 derived technology. The car is said to make over 1,000 horsepower from a small 1.6L F1 engine that spins to 11,000 rpm. As you might expect an F1 style small displacement engine making that sort of power won’t last long.
Mercedes-AMG chairman Tobias moers has stated that the engine in the car will need significant engine work at only 31,000 miles on the clock. Granted a hyper car isn’t a daily driver and a life expectancy of 31,000 miles for the engine could well see the car through several owners.
Mercedes-AMG plans to make 300 of the cars each selling for around $2.5 million. Don’t feel bad for the well-heeled buyers of this car, if they can afford to drop $2.5 million on a car they can afford to rebuild an engine ever 31,000 miles. The official debut of the car will come this fall at the Frankfurt motor show.
