GTI Vs. WRX, Jurassic World Mercedes, Batkid Begins: The Week In Reverse

Follow Nelson

A sick kid gets his wish to become a Lamborghini-driving superhero, Jurassic World shows off its Mercedes vehicles, and we compare the Volkswagen GTI to the Subaru WRX. It’s The Week In Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

If a cute, sick little boy living out his fantasy as Batman behind the wheel of a Lamborghini doesn’t warm your gearhead heart, nothing will. But trust us, this will. From President Obama to the entire city of San Francisco, the story of Miles Scott has engaged the world. Now it will engage you.

Would you like to own the Hennessey Venom GT that made the record 270-mph top speed run? Now you can. But it’ll cost you. How much? How about a cool $1.4 million.

We love car technology, but sometimes, car technology doesn’t love us—humans, that is. Or perhaps it’s just human fallibility playing out through our creations. Either way, this Volvo self-parking demonstration went very, very wrong. Fortunately, everyone is OK.

Are you in the market for a fun-to-drive, but still rather practical car? Then you’ve probably had your eye on the Subaru WRX, the Volkswagen GTI, or both. Which should you choose? We answer that question in our head-to-head video test.

Unimogs. G63 6x6s. Even the GLE Coupe. The upcoming Jurassic World movie will be a smorgasbord of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, including some of our favorite over-the-top off-roaders of all time. You’ll want to check it out, even if CGI dinosaurs don’t do much for you.
