Autoweek in review: What you may have missed

Fri, 12 Apr 2013

Rain fell all week at One Autoweek Tower, and the breaking news didn't let up, either.

Things started out busy enough on Monday with Bugatti losing its top-speed record and the trailer of Ron Howard's new film, “Rush,” hitting the Web.

On Tuesday we paid homage to Distracted Driving month by recounting the touching story of a Kansas State Trooper who has witnessed a variety of tragic scenes -- many resulting from distracted driving.

By mid-week, Chrysler surprised everyone with the announcement of six recalls affecting more than 260,000 vehicles -- an interesting aside to our story on the most American-made vehicles.

Our spy shot of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-class fueled some hump-day excitement as well, but, come Thursday morning, it was a bit of nostalgia we were after. A spin through the history of an old Frank Lloyd Wright-designed showroom that once called Park Avenue home quenched our thirst.

We decided to have a little TGIF fun come Friday morning when we were inspired to check out custom golf carts in honor of the opening of the Masters tournament.

To liven things up a bit, we also started a new daily feature this week: One lap of the web, where we summarize and linked to all the notable videos and such we've found going about our daily business.

Keep an eye out for these and watch as we roll out a new approach to Autoweek TV next week.
