Follow Joel

Audi revealed the new 2017 A4; Dodge showed off the 2015 Challenger Drag Pak, whose driver nearly crashed; and Fiat Chrysler released a new commercial featuring the Dodge Hellcats and Viper just in time for the 4th of July. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

After revealing the new 2015 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, a Mopar driver demonstrated it for journalists. Unfortunately, things didn't go as planned: The engine flooded and stalled. Once restarted, the driver performed a burnout and nearly lost control of the car. Fortunately, our camera was rolling, for your entertainment.

After many spy shots, a few teaser images, and a handful of leaks, its maker finally revealed the new 2017 Audi A4. Lighter, larger, more fuel efficient, and supposedly more comfortable, the new A4 is set to move the bar forward. The 2017 A4 will make its auto show debut this September at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.

Mercedes-AMG teased something fast that's coming soon. All we know is that it sounds really mean on the track. The engine sounds like a twin-turbo V-8, similar to the one in the latest AMG GT, which leads us to wonder if it could be the hotter AMG GT track-focused model.

After 43 long years, a woman was reunited with her stolen Chevrolet Corvette. In a touching story, Allstate Insurance stepped up and returned the car to its customer despite having paid out on the car decades ago. If you're looking for a story with all the feels, this one's for you.

Just in time for the 4th of July, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles released a new commercial featuring the Dodge Hellcats and Viper, titled simply "Predators." The commercial suggests that natural predators are no longer in existence, so Dodge went and made some monsters--naturally. The Hellcats and Viper are now on sale, so hunting season is open.
