The 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR was revealed early; Audi priced the new 2017 R8; and Fast & Furious 8 will be called 'Fast 8'. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

We had a hunch it was coming, but Jaguar wouldn't confirm it. Now, we know, because the 2017 F-Type SVR was revealed early via a leaked brochure on the Internet. Look for more details about this fast Brit during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show in March.

Ford Motor Company [NYSE:F] decided to make a rear seat optional in the new Mustang Shelby GT350R, after all. The cost? A total of $999. Ford says people have been requesting a back seat in their track car. Whether it will be a popular option is yet to be seen.

Audi priced the new 2017 R8. Want one? It'll cost you at least $164,150 in the U.S. market, and that's not for the V10 Plus model. Opting for the extra power and equipment of that model will hit your pocketbook for at least $191,150.

A valet likely lost his job this week after taking a customer's $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador for a joyride. If that wasn't enough, the car was wrecked when it caught fire after he attempted to show off by over-revving it.

We knew another installment of Fast & Furious was coming--in fact, three more have been confirmed--but now we know the name of the eighth movie: Fast 8. It was confirmed by lead actor Vin Diesel this week via social when he posted the first movie poster to Instagram. Also confirmed was the movie's location: New York.
