The incestuous relationship between Mercedes-AMG and Ducati continues as the brands stage a joint appearance at the Bologna Motor Show, starting this Friday.
The collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Ducati is beginning to bear fruit as the Bologna-based motorcycle company launched its first AMG enhanced model at this week’s Frankfurt Motor Show. The Diavel AMG Special Edition is inspired by the unmistakable design of the AMG performance brand, which Ducati hope will imbue their range with a mixture of exclusivity and bahn-storming performance.
Ferrari opened the Bologna Motor Show this morning with a stunning display of race cars including the 599XX and FXX (based upon the Enzo), but it was the 458 Challenge that took centre stage.
The place – last week’s Bettega Memorial Rallysprint in Bologna, Italy. The driver – Petter Solberg, 2003 WRC champion as he performed a parade lap for the crowd. But it looks like he got a little carried away with the moment and decided to demonstrate his stunt driving skills too..
We’re glad he came away from this incident unhurt, so let’s hope we see Petter back ‘inside’ a WRC car in the near future.
