LA Auto Show 2017: Mercedes-AMG Project ONE

One of the most exciting concepts, if that's indeed what Mercedes-AMG is calling it, was their Project ONE car, featured at the Los Angeles Auto show. (Our visit was on December 9, 2017.)

We had heard about the car and as both of us are Mercedes-AMG owners, we were excited to see it. The two-seater Mercedes-AMG Project ONE uses Formula 1 hybrid tech (there's Formula 1 hybrid tech?!) and is said to produce over 1000 horsepower. It will definitely beat those insane Prius drivers who decide every road is theirs to fly down no matter what the speed limit, and without ever using their turn signals, because apparently that would take away too much power away from the batteries.

We are unsure of the design. It's striking and distinct for sure, but if this were a street car? Very confusing. I might be confused as well on its purpose. But it sure was cool to see in person.

What do you think? Could you see yourself in this on your daily commute, knocking off a Prius with your hybrid wake?
