Those who understand the complexity of F1's latest powerplants will know such a feat is no easy task, so we caught up with AMG's boss, Tobias Moers, to see what implications this will have for its road use.
How durable will this tiny V6 engine be? Surely, Formula 1 engines are built to have rather short lives...
TM: “They used to be, but now the number of engines F1 teams can use in a season is restricted, so they’re much longer lasting. We’ve certified the Project One's engine to 50,000km (31,070 miles). It’ll need a rebuild after that.”
Where will you sell the Project One?
TM: “It will be certified under European small series rules, so it’ll go into the UK and Europe. Following successful consultations with authorities in the US and some parts of Asia, it can go there too. But we won’t be selling it in China.”
