High performance Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini and Mercedes-Benz show car ...

Over the weekend on the Monterey Peninsula, Bugatti, Ferrari and Lamborghini all launched new high performance models while Mercedes-Benz revealed a new show car. The most powerful of the bunch is definitely the Bugatti Divo. Named after former Bugatti racer Albert Divo, it shares the same 1,500hp drivetrain with the Chiron it is based on but it is refined in every other aspect to make it faster. The Divo is 35kg lighter and produces 90kg more downforce, and as a result is 8 seconds faster than the Chiron around the Nardo test track. With a price of Euro 5 million, it is the most expensive production car to date but all 40 cars due to be produced have already been sold.
Ferrari, meanwhile, took the wraps off the Spider version of the highly acclaimed 488 Pista. Like its fixed head counterpart, the Pista Spider boasts a 720hp version of the twin-turbo V8 engine, which helps the new Ferrari accelerate to 100km/h in just 2.8 seconds.
A few weeks ago, Lamborghini announced that a new production car record was set at the Nurburgring but it took until this weekend before the car used, the Aventador SVJ broke cover. It lapped the famous track in just 6:44.97 minutes, eclipsing the time set by the Huracan Performante. Compared to the Aventador SV, the new 'Jota' is lighter and more powerful. Interestingly, it has the same power to weight ratio as the Pista Spider and also accelerates to 100km/h in 2.8s. Production of the fast Lamborghini road car yet is limited to 900 examples.
As a tribute to the record breakers based on the legendary Silver Arrow Grand Prix cars of the 1930s, Mercedes-Benz revealed this Vision EQ Silver Arrow at Pebble Beach. This all-electric machine combines its thoroughly modern underpinnings with a design inspired by the W125 Streamliner of 1937. The all-electric drivetrain of the show car is good for an impressive 750hp but is still good for a 400km range.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
