The Challenger SRT Hellcat is the most powerful production muscle car ever, we drive the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe, and the Goodwood Festival of Speed brings amazing hardware old and new—it’s The Week In Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.
There’s a new king of the muscle car horsepower hill, and it’s the 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat
. With a massive 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, it dwarfs not only the muscle car competition, but most of the super car world, including the SRT Viper.
We drove the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe
in Tuscany last week, and it proved to be one of the most amazing two-doors we’ve been in. Luxurious, comfortable, and shockingly fast, it might just be the car to displace that Bentley or Rolls-Royce you’ve been dreaming of.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed is an amazing display of vintage and modern racing cars, supercars, and more. We were lucky enough to spend a few hours there, and grabbed all of the photos we could
. Even better, Ferrari gave us their best of the Festival
, including Jay Kay’s bright green LaFerrari.
Speaking of LaFerraris, the first known customer-owned car crash happened
this week in Monaco. It’s a sad, ugly thing, but it had to happen eventually, right?
Halfway around the world, and a month ago, Mark Higgins set a new four-wheeled lap record around the Isle of Man TT circuit. This week, we got the full, driver-annotated, in-car lap video
, and it’s even more incredible than we’d imagined. Ride along to learn a lot about driving fast and the Isle of Man.
