While all of us plebes are getting ready for the Geneva show, some Swiss types are focused on the Top Marques show in Monaco. Weber Sportscars, for example, is working up a one-off supercar it says will be unveiled in Monte Carlo. The company best known for motors and other such materiel says it's concocted a super-rigid aluminum chassis that weighs only 143 pounds. It's also taken nine months to get the body suitably slippery. A mid-mounted 7.2-liter V8 of the company's own construction will provide motivation, along with a six-speed sequential semi-auto transmission. Stated performance numbers are suitably batshit for capturing the attention for bloggers trying not to watch yet another episode of "Arrested Development" on TiVo: Zero-to-62 in 2.7 seconds and a top speed of close to 250 mph.
