Mercedes-AMG Project One is capable of exceeding 217mph with ease. It can accelerate from 0 to 124 mph in under six seconds. The all-electric range is 15.5 miles with a help of drive system that has 800 volts. When drive under normal condition, the Mercedes-AMG Project One can recuperates 80 percent of its energy required that is then fed to the battery.

Power window, air conditioner and rear view camera is also present as there is no rear window. Only 275 units of Mercedes-AMG Project One will be made which will be left-hand drive only. The price of the supercar will be $2.7 million for each unit. Unfortunately, all of them are sold out but it will take some time to see it on the road.
