Ever since the Volkswagen group decided to re-incarnate Bugatti with the Veyron, no international motor show of repute has been complete without one. So this year, the highlight of the Frankfurt Motor Show has been the Bugatti Chiron, the car that manages the fastest zero to 400kmph and back. But that’s not the only car worth a mention. Here are a few more.
1. Bugatti Chiron
After the engineering marvel that the Veyron was, its successor, the Chiron, had real large shoes to fill. And that it did in style. Powered by the unique W16 powertrain, the Chiron belts out 1500bhp of power and eclipses the Veyron in terms of speed as well as handling.
2. Porsche 911 GT2 RS
Porsche unveiled the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Powered by a revised version of the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre horizontally-opposed six-cylinder petrol engine that resides in the latest 911 Turbo, the new 1470kg coupe packs a heady 700 horsepower to make the new Porsche the most powerful road going 911 ever. Drool.
3. Audi R8 V10 RWS
The industry was a little surprised when the buzz of a RWD Audi started making rounds. Well, here is the Audi R8 V10 Rear Wheel Series. Aimed at purists who think all-wheel drive is for noobs, this is the first all-out Audi in decades to ditch the famous Quattro.
4. Bentley Continental GT
This drawing room on wheels can lap a Nurburgring in less than eight minutes. Styled after the Bentley 6 concept, the all-new Continental GT makes a statement of luxury and power at the same time like no one else.
5. Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster
What is better than a loud V12 Lamborghini? A loud V12 Lamborghini that can go topless! Here is the Lamborghini Aventador S Roadster. With more than 725bhp of power from the 6.5-litre V12, this Aventador comes with active aerodynamics and these lovely multi-spoke wheels!
