F1 star Valtteri Bottas collects his incredible £2million custom Mercedes-AMG One hypercar after agonising two-year wait | The Sun

F1 STAR Valtteri Bottas has finally collected an incredible £2million custom Mercedes-AMG One hypercar – after an agonising two year wait.

The superstar driver ordered his F1-powered hybrid hypercar while he was still racing for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas team alongside Lewis Hamilton.

Bottas went to the Mercedes headquarters in Affalterbach, Germany, to pick up his luxury car, Carscoops reports.

And, the stunning machine looked even more unique painted in a rare shade of blue, while there's lots of expensive carbon fibre parts used across the exterior.

Incredibly, only 275 were ever made by the German manufacturer – and Bottas and Hamilton now own one each.

And ex-F1 champion, Nico Rosberg, is also on the list to receive one of the extra special AMG models.

Under the bonnet it's a real tech-fest, with a modified version of the 1.6-litre turbocharged V6 engine used in the Mercedes F1 car.

But it's now boosted by four electric motors and is able to deliver as much as 1,049hp – when driven in "Race Plus" mode.

According to Motor Authority, Mercedes claims the AMG One will blast from 0-62mph in 2.9 seconds, before shooting on to a top speed of 219mph.

The AMG One was first shown more than five years ago at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show.
