Ex-Formula 1 Mercedes world champion, Nico Rosberg, modified his AMG Project One – and the figures look good – 2.2 seconds 0-60mph.
Nico Rosberg has the reputation of being able to claim something very few people on the planet will ever be able to claim. As a former Formula 1 world champion, Nico joins some very limited and distinguished company and, as an active F1 competitor driving for Mercedes-Benz, he had an opportunity that really caught our attention: owning one of the first AMG Project One cars to be built.
After arriving at the beautiful facility, Rosberg toured the museum-like showroom while waiting his turn to check out the hypercar. He and his wife, Vivian, perused the collection of historic Mercedes vehicles new and old, stopping to comment on a few of them along the way. When the time came for Nico to head outside and check out the Project One for himself, you can hear the excitement in his voice and when he finally lays eyes on the car, Rosberg is quite literally speechless for a moment.
Looking at the car, inside and out, there’s absolutely no denying it’s one of the most visually striking cars ever designed, and based on what Nico shares, along with what we’ve heard over the past year or so of the car’s development, this car just might shatter every record on the books.
Only time will tell, but there’s a good chance we’ll see Rosberg himself behind the wheel when Mercedes rolls out a production model to assault the record books!
