The hypercar game is moving on fast, Mercedes-AMG have launched the Project One that will go up against Aston Martin and Red Bull’s Valkyrie; both offering insane levels of performance in cars that simply look like they have come back in time from the future. Where the Chiron, LaFerrari, P1 and 918 Spyder have familiarity as road cars, Project One and Valkyrie have more appearance of something straight from the race track. Let’s take a look at these two up close, I can’t wait to see them go head to head!

Aston Martin did not host a stand at IAA but did however put on a private event where we can see the original AM-RB 001 concept. This was the clay model launched to introduce the car to the world but prior to the second iteration with some further changes that came with the name we now know it by of Valkyrie. The car features a 6.5l NA V12 supported by electric motors for a power output of around 1,146PS while carrying a weight of only 1,030kg… it doesn’t take much to realise this is going to be a fast car! The significant difference to any other car of the era is the cabin in a teardrop shape with most of the downforce capability coming from underneath the car.

Mercedes-AMG brought the long await Project One to IAA with Lewis Hamilton bringing it on stage, it will be the closest experience to Formula 1 as it features the familiar 1.6l turbocharged V6 that revs to 11,000rpm from the championship winning F1 racecar. Supported again by electric motors the power output is headed towards 1,034PS with a target weight of around 1,300kg; again these are extraordinary numbers.

Both cars are no doubt spectacularly fast, both have price tags around £2.5 million, both look crazy and feature innovative aerodynamics, but what a head to head this is going to make when customer cars start to arrive in the years to come, bring it on!

Thanks for watching, Tim

Let's take a look at these two up close, I can't wait to see them go head to head!

TheTreeman says:

If I could fit in the Valkyrie, I would take it. They're both spaceships, but the Aston looks like it's actually supposed to fly.

PascalGame indonesia says:

Only 275 unit will be made with a retail price of $2.7 million but regarding the amount of car were made it will probably had a asking price of $5 million

PascalGame indonesia says:

TBH I will choose project one no matter what I mean look at it

SamialLamboGuy Gamer says:

The Aston Martin Valkyrie is better. The Valkyrie has a V12 compared to the Mercedes AMG Project One which has a V6.

Hauke G. says:

Both cars are going to be on a very similar level when it comes to racetrack-performance. Since both are going to be street-legal, there won't be any other roadcars which can compete with these two beasts. From what you can read in the internet, they're going to be as fast as a LMP1-racecar.

Vehicle-information of the Project One (official AMG-numbers from the IAA):

0-100 kph in less than 2.5 seconds
0-200 kph in less than 6 seconds
0-300 kph in less than 11 seconds
Top-speed: >350 up to >370 kph or more
Power: >1000 up to >1200 BHP
Curb-weight: ~1200 Kg
2.7 million € / 275 cars (sold out)

Until 200 and 300 kph it's accelerating faster than any Koenigsegg, Bugatti, Rimac or any other Hypercar on the market.

Powered by a Formula 1 1.6L V6 with E-Turbo-charger + 4 E-motors. It's got All-wheel-drive with torque-vectoring, an fully-adaptive active-suspension which can control each wheel by it's own, fully active aerodynamics and a 8-speed automated-gearbox. The Mercedes-AMG Project One (R50) will create a whole new level of racetrack-performance for roadcars (it's going to be 100% street-legal) and only the Aston Martin Valkyrie will drive one a similar level. As I wrote, both cars are going to be as fast as a LMP1-racecar. While it will bring as much Formula 1 technology to the road as possible, the AMG Project One is going to be as comfortable and luxurious as possible and it has all the technology-features we know from a modern Mercedes – like fully assisted LED-headlights, 2-zone Auto-Climate-Control, the newest COMAND Online (optimized for the Project One), two big touch-displays, fully integrated smartphone-functionality, a 3D-soundsystem and heatable, adaptive Carbon-fiber racing-seats which are optimized in their shape for each owner.

valkyrie all day for me.

Chase Brooks says:

Id take any of them tbh lol but I think I like the project one better

UgandanKnuckles says:

john lemon says:

Valkyrie all the time

mohand prince says:

MyBallSack Itches says:

id have the aston

M11 R says:

Aston all day long

Peter Clarke says:

The Aston of course

Ma Wue says:

Project one! I’d take that one…. but the Aston Martin in a creme colored finish with a racing red line on the top would look just as beauty’s perfection.

In my opinion, the design of both cars is just gorgeous. But the better package in the end, of all parts, has the Mercedes i guess.

OK DOK says:

F1 TEAM VS F1 TEAM

Sannan Sheikh says:

Vulcan looks way cooler

Stefaka says:
