Since the origins of motorsport it has been a dream of engineers to bring racing technology onto the road. Mercedes-AMG is now making this dream a reality at the highest possible level. "Motorsport is not an end in itself to us. Under maximum competition we develop technologies from which our production vehicles will later also benefit. We are now using experiences and successes from three constructor and driver world championships to bring Formula One technology onto the road for the first time: in the Mercedes-AMG Project ONE," says Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars.
The concept car gives many, concrete examples for the coming production model. "The hypercar represents the most ambitious project that we have ever undertaken. It marks a further high point of the successful strategic further development of Mercedes-AMG into a performance and sports car brand. The Project ONE raises the bar of what is currently technically possible to a new level and, with its combination of efficiency and performance, represents an absolute benchmark. At the same time, the Project ONE provides an outlook for how AMG driving performance will be defined in future," says Tobias Moers, CEO of Mercedes-AMG GmbH.
