This week, special guest James Engelsman of Throttle House joins the show to unpack the many happenings of this year’s Monterey Car Week, the center of all things automotive once a year. It’s James’ first car week experience, one which included multiple manufacture reveals, seas of interesting cars from pre-war to Pagani, and the occasional high five between Christian Von Koenigsegg and Gordon Murray.
In a discussion beginning with pre-war cars, Jason, Derek, and James discuss various driving experiences that overpromise and under-deliver (and vice-versa). The centerpiece of frustration revolves mostly around the original Acura NSX, a car Jason says promised looks over actual delivered performance.
Jason and James also cover their lightspeed hot lap around Laguna Seca in an 1100 horsepower Lucid Air Sapphire, piloted by none other than Top Gear’s original tame racing driver, Ben Collins (aka The Stig).
