So what’s the fastest way to go in a straight line without a roof but with numberplate on the back? For 2019, BMW’s superbike, the S1000RR, has been redeveloped to be lighter, more powerful and even cleverer than ever before. Ariel’s fourth Atom puts over 300bhp from a Honda Civic Type R engine through the back wheels and weighs little over 500kg. The 720S has monstered everything to 60mph recently, including a Senna in an Autocar video, but will it keep its crown as the drag race king, being 49kg heavier in Spider form? Matt Prior finds out. Film by Mitch McCabe, Oli Kosbab and Tej Bhola. New videos are uploaded to Autocar each week. Don’t miss a single one.

This is first time that the 475hp Ariel Atom V8 and 650hp Noble M600 have been to the Nordschleife. They were scary as s***. Awesome times.
