Although previews have shown the car's rear in greater detail, with the exhausts and part of the rear lights exposed, the leak shows the car's entire look, ahead of the car's debut later this evening.
Another recent image, which was allegedly originally taken by AMG boss Tobias Moers and uploaded to an Instagram page, shows the view from the driver's seat, with part of the car visible on the central infotainment display. It also reveals the car's F1-inspired steering wheel, digital dashboard and cabin shape.
Set to make its world debut at the Frankfurt motor show on 11 September, confirmation of the potential top speed accompanies a third image of the £2.4 million coupé issued by Mercedes-AMG, showing its muscular silhouette along with a series of new design cues. The car will possess a top speed exceeding 218mph, the German car maker has revealed.
The darkened image exposes the front end of the new flagship Mercedes-AMG model for the first time, including its distinctive LED headlights, with each incorporating three separate U-shaped elements.
The thin-line headlights are mounted well outboard on heavily rounded bodywork. The new image also reveals a vertical wing element mounted low down on the outer left of the front end – evidence that Project One is set to receive a race-grade aerodynamic package already promised by Mercedes-AMG chairman Tobias Moers.
