Almost six years have passed since Mercedes-AMG debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show of the Project One concept. As of June 2022, the production version, which doesn't use the word "Project," has finally begun to be delivered to customers.

In addition to displaying German "ON1" plates, the hypercar has Petronas green accents and a number of white three-pointed stars on the rear section. The roof scoop tip is finished in red and the front grille has prominent white "AMG" lettering. The fastest street-legal production vehicle around the Nürburgring, Hockenheim, and the Red Bull Ring is only available in 275 copies.

It is uncertain who holds possession of the initial One, F1 racers Lewis Hamilton have committed to purchasing this rare handmade Mercedes.

Production will began in August 2022 at AMG's Coventry factory, where the cars are being assembled. MercedesAMG High Performance Powertrains in Brixworth developed the intricate hybrid powertrain with a turbocharged 1.6-liter V6 engine and four electric motors. Using Multimatic's assistance, a dedicated production facility had to be built, where each one would go through 16 assembly and testing stations.

The combustion engine produces 566 horsepower along with the hybrid assistance increases the power to 1,049 horsepower. With a dual-clutch transmission developed specifically for the ONE, it laps the Nordschleife in 6 minutes, 35 seconds.

It is not legal in the United States of America, but it can still be imported there under the show or display law, which allows owners to drive “illegal cars” up to 2,500 miles (a little over 4,000 kilometers) a year. Driving a car that is as close to an F1 car as possible on public roads costs €2.275 million at current exchange rates, or $2.460 million at current exchange rates.
