Follow Joel

We slide behind the wheel of the new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE450 AMG Coupe, 2016 C450 AMG and the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

BMW finally unveiled the 2016 M2 but enthusiasts want to know more than just the power ratings. They want to know lap times. BMW hasn't confirmed an official time, but it might have accidentally let the cat out of the bag by stating a 7 minute 58 second Nürburgring lap time in the official launch video.

Speaking of the new BMW M2, we met the people who actually developed the car this week. From the exterior designer to the engine developer, even the engineers, they are all here telling you the tale of how the M2 came to be.

When you have the keys to a 2016 Cadillac ATS-V coupe and someone invites you to take some hot laps at Gingerman Raceway, well, you don't say no. We pushed the ATS-V through the corners and had a lot of fun at track speeds. We even toyed with a DINAN E92 BMW 335i.

If the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C300 is too docile for you, and the C63 AMG is too much of a brute for everyday life, is the new 2016 C450 AMG the perfect C-Class? We found out during a trip to Knoxville, Tennessee.

BMW has made the X6 a success against what many would call common sense. Now Mercedes-Benz wants a piece of the pie, and it's coming to the table with the new 2016 GLE450 AMG Coupe. Can Mercedes do pretty and off-road better than BMW? We found out.
