Over the years, what has driven manufacturers like Mercedes to build super-cars, those automobiles whose performance far exceeds any reasonable road-going requirements?
Join automotive expert Simon Kidston as he takes you behind the wheel of 6 of the most distinctive "Supercars", known for their performance, exclusivity and of course their price tag...
These cars are definite eye-catchers: the Mercedes Benz 300 SL, Lamborghini Miura, Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari F40 and the McLaren F1. You'll also get an exclusive look around the high-tech Bugatti factory and their gorgeous $2 million Bugatti Veyron, which claims a top speed of 400 kilometres per hour!
