TopSpeed Podcast Episode 029 LIVE
Well, that was our show. As always, a big thanks goes out to anyone who watched live. We appreciate you chatting with us. We sadly had to have the show without Justin today, however. Google was not cooperating with us, and he couldn’t log onto the call.
After sorting through the technical problems and deciding to leave our man behind, Mark and I jumped straight into Weekly Wheels. I spent some time discussing the surprisingly good Lexus GS450h, and Mark was driving around in the three-row QX60 from Infiniti. Justin will just have to tell us about the ILX next week.
News was a rather full segment with lots of interesting pieces. We talked about the $100 Lego Mini Cooper, an Audi SUV based on the TT sports car, some Australian Miata specs and a bit about aftermarket parts from Hennessey. We also spend some time talking about how good the Challenger Hellcat is, how good the 2015 Mustang isn’t, and we also delve into the mess that is Ferrari right now. Oh, we also mention the multi-million dollar, 60th anniversary, special-edition Ferrari that is coming soon.
Our Questions and Answers portion this week is one of the best we have had in a while. We spend some time talking about what is next for Ferrari’s departing chairman Luca di Montezemolo, take a look at what we would name our cars if we owned a car company and then we talk about the best cars to take on epic cross-country road trips.
There may also be a mention of Forza Horizon 2 in there somewhere.
We wrap things up with a quick Own, Drive, Burn that sees us choosing between three of the original ultimate sports cars from Jaguar, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz.
Make sure that you leave us a bunch of comments, questions and Own, Drive, Burn suggestions for the next show. Have a safe weekend and we will see you all next week.
