Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce, 207.9 MPH Mustang, Shelby GT350 Specs: The Week In Reverse

Follow Joel

We drove the new 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce; the Hennessey HPE750 hit 207.9 mph; and Ford finally releases powertrain numbers for the new 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350. It's the Week In Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

We flew to Spain and drove the new 2016 Lamborghini Aventador SuperVeloce on the streets and at the track. It's literally insane. Science tells us that neck strain is bad for you. After driving this new bull, we call BS on science. The sounds, the look, and the experience are on a whole different level than that of the pedestrian Aventador.

This week people celebrated National Donut Day across the U.S., and in true American fashion Chevrolet stitched together a video of NASCAR race cars doing donuts. Smoky, stinky, rubbery, epic donuts. Because this is America and we love donuts in all forms.

Ford finally released official power ratings for the 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350, and no one's disappointed. The new 5.2-liter flat-crank V-8 produces 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Even more fun? It happily screams all the way to an 8,250 redline.

The SRT team released the Tomahawk upon the world. Sadly, it's not the Tomahawk concept from a deacde ago. Instead, it's a digital concept for Gran Turismo. The SRT Tomahawk Vision Gran Turismo will appear in three flavors: street-spec S, race-spec GTS-R, and the ultimate-spec X. Things get crazy with claims of 2,590 horsepower and 14,500 rpm redlines, but hey, it's digital.

The upcoming 2017 Bentley Bentayga SUV was caught on film this week as a prototype underwent what must be final shakedowns at the Nürburgring. Interestingly, for what's supposed to be the world's most luxurious SUV, it sounds pretty mean blasting down the track. The Bentayga should be revealed later this year at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Painted like a bright yellow school bus, the Hennessey HPE750 Ford Mustang hit a record 207.9 mph this week at Continental Tire's 8.5-mile high-speed oval. Whether you're a Mustang fan or not, hitting 207.9 mph in a car that costs less than $70,000 with a warranty is nothing short of impressive.
