For the first time ever, Mercedes-AMG is bringing Formula 1 hybrid technology from the track to the city streets in the form of their Project ONE hybrid hypercar. It’s an effort to celebrate AMG’s 50th Anniversary and is slated to debut at this year’s International Motor Show in Frankfurt.

Feeding this street legal Formula 1 ride is a hybrid drive unit capable of producing upwards of 1,000 horsepower and redlines at an astonishing 11,000 RPMs. It’s a 1.6 liter, turbocharged V6 that works in conjunction with four electric motors. One of which features another turbocharger, another directly on the combustion engine linking to the crankcase, and the two others drive the front wheels. Such a powerplant allows Project ONE to hit 124 mph in under six seconds thanks to power transferred to the rear wheels via an 8-speed manual transmission developed specifically for this project. It also features a ceramic high-performance braking system, a unique pushrod suspension, and is rumored to cost upwards of $2.75 million.
