A Bugatti with an eye-popping price tag and a pair of roofless Ferraris made their public debuts at the semi-annual auto show this week. BMW brought its own sports car, while German rivals Audi and Mercedes-Benz introduced new SUVs.

Moving on.

Bugatti, the Volkswagen-owned French supercar builder, has outdone itself with the Divo, a $5.8 million coupe with a top speed of 236 mph. The Divo’s massive 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine produces 1,500 horsepower from the factory.

Moving on.

The first vehicles in Ferrari’s new Icona series were detailed in the company’s presentation to shareholders last month. The Monza SP1 and SP2 ‘ a one- and two-seat sports car, respectively ‘ arrived in Paris to much fanfare. The cars were designed with open cockpits, resembling race cars of the 1940s and 1950s. They also feature Ferrari’s most powerful engine ever used in a road-legal model. Both Monzas have 6.5-liter V12 engines that generate 810 horsepower.

Hot metal: Electrics, SUVs and supercars mingle in Paris

PARIS — A wildly expensive supercar from Bugatti. A one-seater retro Ferrari with a giant engine. And, notwithstanding the buzz over electrics, a big, seven-seat luxury Mercedes-Benz SUV with a powerful internal combustion engine.

Break.

The show, held every two years, opens to the public Thursday through Oct. 14 at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles exhibition center. More than a million people attended in 2016.

Break.

Germany’s luxury carmakers are finally offering production-ready battery-powered vehicles, the leading edge of what they say will be dozens of new electrics and hybrids over the next five to ten years. The e-tron falls into the familiar category of crossover SUV: big wheel wells and higher seating position but a car-like roofline and plenty of interior comforts. The e-tron offers faster charging at 150 kilowatts and longer range: more than 400 kilometers (249 miles) on a full charge under the European WLTP standard. Owners can use the highway network of fast-charging stations under construction by Ionity, the joint venture among Audi, Porsche, Daimler, BMW and Ford. So can owners of Mercedes-Benz’ EQC electric SUV, also on display at the Paris show.
