The introduction of the Mercedes-AMG Project One Formula One-inspired hypercar is arguably the most anticipated introduction for this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, and there’s good reason for that.
Mercedes-AMG has decided to entice us even further by providing a first glimpse of the interior, albeit in low-resolution – probably company CEOs such as Tobias Moers can’t be bothered with things like photo resolution and upscaling. No matter, it’s juicy enough for us, with the car seemingly located indoors at the Mercedes-AMG High Performance Powertrains at Brixworth, United Kingdom. As far as we can see, the interior will feature a minimalist, race track theme – albeit in full high-tech mode: there’s a fully digital wide screen instrument cluster, joined on the side by another display that seems to adopt the floating tablet styling of recent models.
We can also see – as previously hinted – the Project One features a large windscreen for perfect visibility, probably to compensate for the narrow view at the back. The teaser also gives us a fleeting glimpse of the steering wheel, which is flat at the top and seems to be directly inspired form the world of racing, complete with tachometer on the upper side. Aside from Tobias Moers who trialed this development car for free, few people will enjoy the Project One experience – production will be limited to just 275 examples, with all of them probably pre-sold at more than $2 million apiece.
