We drove the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR; Ford Motor Company's [NYSE:F] back at the 24 Hours of Le Mans; and Barricade from Transformers 5 was revealed. It's the Week in Reverse, right here at Motor Authority.

The 2018 Audi A8 was spied testing on the Nürburgring this week. The design of the new A8 falls in line with the recently launched A4 and was previewed by the Prologue concept back in 2014. A reveal should take place later this year or early next.

Director Michael Bay released images of the Ford Mustang set to play the Barricade character in Transformers 5. For the latest movie Bay has picked the sixth-generation Mustang for Barricade and has given the car a very aggressive look.

Ford has returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the 50th anniversary of its famous one-two-three finish, to try and recapture that magic with the new GT supercar. Despite the wet weather the Blue Oval's already off to a good start as it took pole position in its class.

Sometimes a vehicle nameplate has a long and storied history, such as the Mustang or Corvette, and sometimes they don't. We ran down a list of 10 vehicles that met their demise after just a year or two on the market.

We slid behind the wheel of the 2017 Jaguar F-Type SVR. Billed as one of the fastest production Jaguars ever to be built, the SVR is capable of hitting 200 mph in coupe form. It also sounds like it should be illegal.
