The Mercedes AMG Project One, introduced as a concept car at the IAA Mobility Show in Frankfurt in 2017, is finally entering production in the middle of next year, according to reports. The Mercedes AMG hypercar has witnessed multiple delays due to challenges that arose in the process of adapting a F1-derived hybrid powertrain for the roads.

The much-awaited Project One model will derive its power from a high-performance plug-in hybrid drive system that comes directly from Formula 1. One of the major challenges that the team faced during its making was to bring down the idle speed of mid-mounted V6 engine's to 1,200 rpm from Formula 1 engine's 5000 rpm. The engineers described it as a ‘tremendous challenge.’
