AutoGuide Now for the Week of July 20

It’s that time of the week again and, no, we’re not just talking about Monday. It’s time to get a sneak peek of the all the fun stories and car reviews that are coming your way in the next few weeks!

2015-McLaren-650S

2015 McLaren 650S SpyderMike Schlee, Road Test Editor:

“Sometimes, I get to drive things that are really cool. Like, next level awesome. This is one of those weeks. From Friday until Monday, I’ll be behind the wheel of the McLaren 650S Spider. With a turbocharged 3.8-liter V8 making 641 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, the mid-engine supercar is bound to attract some attention. But does driving a supercar make you an instant celebrity?”

2016 Hyundai Veloster Rally Limited EditionSami Haj-Assaad, Features Editor:

“If you think Mike has a hot car this week, you should listen to this. The car I’m testing sports a sexy matte blue paint finish. Does Mike’s tester have a fancy look? I’m not going to definitively say yes or no, that’s up to you to decide, but I think the answer is obvious. Be sure to learn all about the limited-run Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally edition that I’ll be checking out this week by following me on Twitter and keeping your eyes glued to our Car Reviews page.

Track-stravaganza – Craig Cole, Associate Editor Speed Freak:

“This week, I’m hitting the racetrack! As a member of MAMA, the Midwest Automotive Media Association, I’ve been invited to participate in a high-speed driving school at Gingerman Raceway in western Michigan. When offered this opportunity, I jumped at it like a feral cat pouncing on a sickly chipmunk. It’s ALWAYS a good thing to hone your track-driving skills and I can’t wait to turn some hot laps.”

2015 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack

2015 Dodge Challenger Scat PackJodi Lai, Managing Editor

“I’ve been waiting to drive this car for ages now, and this week, I finally get my hands on a Dodge Challenger. No, it’s not the Hellcat. I’ll be driving the Scat Pack Challenger with a manual transmission. This makes me happy. I have a huge soft spot for muscle cars. I’ve always preferred the Challenger’s retro look over the Camaro and Mustang, but I’m very interested to see how the drives compare. 6.4L Hemi? BRING IT ON!”
