Hypercars, sports cars, SUVs and bags of mulch: Our week on Instagram

Yeah, you read that last part right.

One of these days, we're going to have a real boring week, where Roadshow and Carfection lie dormant and catch up on our vast to-do lists. But this week is not that week, so once again, we're back with yet another thinly veiled plea to start following us on Instagram.

Carfection's Alex Goy is a real piece of crap. Not only did he attend the unveiling of Aston Martin's AM-RB 001 hypercar collaboration with Red Bull, but he also ended up spending some time with the Bugatti Chiron, the successor to the Veyron. I'm assuming he sold his soul to the devil, but I haven't heard him play the blues, so I can't be sure about that.

Roadshow's week was a bit more grounded. Our San Francisco crew spent the week filming our small-crossover Rivals feature, going off-road with three cars that will probably never go off-road again. Jon Wong and Chris Paukert scampered off to Gingerman Raceway to film a Shootout with an Alfa Romeo 4C and a BMW M2. Before the 4C left, though, I spent the weekend with it, wherein I attempted to retrieve mulch from my local garden center with limited success.

Sorry about the smell, Jon.
