Mercedes-Benz’s AMG performance car division has joined the exclusive ranks of high-end hypercar manufacturers with the unveiling of a spectacular new US$2.7 million (£2.08m) 992bhp-plus coupé known under the working title Project One.

At an event on the eve of the Frankfurt motor show, Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton drove the new car on stage, to be greeted by Mercedes chairman Dieter Zetsche.

The new model has been produced to provide a direct link between the German car maker’s successful F1 racing activities and its road car arm. It is powered by a significantly reworked version of the turbocharged 1.6-litre V6 petrol engine and electric motor set-up currently used by the W08 F1 race car, as driven by Hamilton and team-mate Valtteri Bottas.
