The Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar has been previewed again, ahead of its global reveal at the Frankfurt motor show next week.

A shadowy image released by the German marque depicts an aggressive-looking vehicle with slim LED headlights and a roof scoop, looking very much like a road-going Le Mans racer.

Mercedes-AMG has already confirmed the Project One will bring “fully-fledged Formula One hybrid technology to the road”, marrying a 1.6-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine to four electric motors. Over 1000hp (745kW) is claimed, as is a top speed “exceeding 350km/h”.

Just 275 examples of the Project One will be produced, with each going for around $2 million – and nine are heading for Australia and one for New Zealand.

Speaking with CarAdvice in May, Tobias Moers, boss of Mercedes-AMG, said the company’s aim is not to build the world’s fastest production car, but to set a “benchmark” for high-performance and energy-efficient vehicles.

In addition to the 745kW power output and 350+km/h top speed, the company claims the Project will feature an all-electric range of 25km.

Stay tuned to CarAdvice for our coverage of the 2017 Frankfurt motor show.
