2015 McLaren 650S – David Pratte, AutoGuide.com Hot Shoe:
We have our hands on the McLaren 650S and our very own David Pratte is planning on putting this supercar to the ultimate test: a timed lap around AutoGuide.com’s test track. Think it has what it takes to bump the Audi R8 V10 Plus from that number one spot?
“It’s not every day that I get to drive an absolute base model car, but this week I do. Now priced under $30,000 in both Canada and the U.S., is the aging Nissan 370Z still a worthwhile performance proposition?”
San Antonio, Texas – Cooper Tires:
“Mid-week I am off to San Antonio, Texas to test two of Cooper Tire’s latest crossover and SUV tires. How well with the new SRX and ATW fare?”
“This week I have a dental appointment but that’s far from the most exciting thing going on in my world (yes, I’ve been flossing). On Tuesday Ford is hosting a technical backgrounder focusing on the new Mustang GT350’s suspension. This should provide an enlightening look at this exciting new performance car.
“Then, over the weekend, I get to spend some time in the ultra luxurious Mercedes Maybach S600. Stay tuned for a written review and a video.”
“With its new look, updated powertrain and available features, I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the 2016 Acura ILX sedan, but to really put it to the test we have to see how it fares against the competition. Luke has himself a Mercedes CLA 250 that provides the perfect foil for the entry-level ILX. Which one would you pick?”
“This week I’m going to spend time in the Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 to benchmark it against the recently improved Acura ILX. I’m betting the Mercedes will be a more enjoyable product to drive, but our review of the refreshed Acura was very positive. Now it’s time to see which one is better.”
