Follow Joel

We drove the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata; Ferrari revealed the 488 Spider; and Mercedes-AMG teases the C63 AMG Coupe yet again. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

After what feels like eons, we finally had the chance to slide behind the wheel of the new 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Miata has always followed the mantra of more equals less, and this new generation is no different. It's fun-to-drive and lives up to the legendary nameplate.

Remember the couple that have more than 65 Dodge Vipers? It seems that wasn't enough as they just added their 79th Viper to the collection. Named the Viper's Nest, this couple's collection is nothing short of breathtaking. The latest additions took advantage of Dodge's '1-of-1' personalization program for the Viper.

The GMC Syclone was straight-up nuts when it was new in 1991. In fact, you couldn't buy anything that was quicker in a straight line, not even a Ferrari. This week the one and only Jay Leno stepped into his denim duds and slid into a 1991 Syclone for a test drive that you just can't miss.

Mercedes-AMG has been teasing something "fast" is coming with the sweet sound of what has to be the twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engine. This week, the automaker finally released a new teaser video and photos confirming that the new vehicle is the 2017 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupe. Even in camouflage it looks stunning, and it sounds even better.

Ferrari revealed the new 488 Spider before its Frankfurt debut in September. Replacing the 458 Spider, this new convertible features the same mechanical bits as the 488 GTB, as well as the latest Ferrari design language.
