Lexus Hoverboard, 2016 GMC Sierra 1500, McLaren 675LT: The Week In Reverse

Follow Joel

Lexus seems to have created an actual hoverboard; GMC revealed its updated 2016 Sierra 1500; and McLaren put the new 675LT to work on the track. It's the Week in Reverse, right here on Motor Authority.

We heard Lexus was building a hoverboard, but--to be honest--we didn't really believe it would actually work. Turns out we might have been wrong. Not only is Lexus building a hoverboard, but it'll actually work--if the latest teaser video is accurate. Toyota's luxury brand says it's building a hoverboard skate park just outside of Barcelona, Spain. It's real, and it's happening. Welcome to the future.

The character Cole Trickle and Days of Thunder are a classic for any automotive enthusiast, and M&M candies knows it. That's probably why they did a parody video ripping off Days of Thunder and pairing the plotline with Crispy M&Ms. Kyle Busch was in on it, and the result is so bad, it's almost good.

The new Acura NSX is getting closer to launching, but in the mean time the automaker ran an NSX as the pace car at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. We heard the hybrid supercar charge up the mountain with its turbos spooling and boost soaring. The video alone is enough to get us excited about the revival of this legendary nameplate.

This year, the 2016 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck gets a facelift. With updated front and rear fascias, revised powertrains, and a slightly refreshed interior, the 2016 Sierra 1500 is keeping it fresh in the face of stiff competition from the all-new and mostly aluminum Ford F-150.

McLaren's nearing the launch of its new 675LT supercar, and the British carmaker treated us to the sweet sight, and sounds of its latest creation working magic on the race track. Described as a more track-focused version of the 650S, the 675LT is limited to 500 units and is already sold out.
