This is really insane for a product road-legal vehicle and it doesn't help knowing that the Project One's shape will be greatly inspired by pure F1 cars.

With just a few days to go before the official unveiling of the Project One, Mercedes-AMG has released another teaser image - this time around showing the rear of the vehicle.

The Mercedes-AMG Project One extracts this sort of performance from a 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 motor that has been inspired from Mercedes' Formula 1 endeavours.

Hurricane Irma curfews: Seminole, Orange counties start at 7 pm Sunday
As of Sunday morning, more than 3,600 residents went to one of the county's 19 shelters. Broward County is lifting its Hurricane Irma curfew at 10 a.m.

According to its creators, the auto combines outstanding racetrack performance with day-to-day suitable Formula 1 hybrid technology and exemplary efficiency. The steering wheel is also identical to the one on their F1 vehicle, and the design is not far fetched either as the similarities are beyond reasonable doubt. There appears to be no rear-vision mirror, either, but that's something of a given seeing as the teaser image shows the Project One has no rear window.

The hotly anticipated F1-engined Project One is going to premiere on the Frankfurt Motor Show catwalk to usher a new era of hypercars, joined by models such as the Red Bull Aston Martin Valkyrie.
