Driver in northern Portugal snaps up 1000 hp Merc for €3 million

Somewhere in Portugal’s north there is one swanky driver behind the wheel of a Project One – Mercedes’ plug-in hybrid supercar able to reach speeds of 350 km/ hour, with an acceleration capacity of 0-200 km/ hour in less than six seconds.

The 1000 hp car, described in the trade as a “bomb”, is one of only 275 models made, and the only one to have been sold – for the princely sum of €3 million – in Portugal.
