Turbocharger components and parts

Mercedes-AMG has unveiled a 1,000bhp F1-derived supercar at a preview event ahead of the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show.

The Project One hypercar is a two-seat hybrid performance model that purports to harness the power of Formula One in a road-legal way, one which will pass an MOT and run on fuel from a normal petrol station.

It’s a mid-engined car, its 1.6-litre V6 petrol engine with electrically-assisted turbocharging placed just in front of the rear axle. This unit has a 11,000rpm red line and works in conjunction with four electric motors, which bring the bhp output into four figures.
