Welcome to Roadshow's week in review, where we take a look back at the biggest stories from the past seven days. The week began with a wild ride in the 2020 McLaren 720S Spider, kept the momentum with a blast in a Honda Civic race car, and stayed interesting with several key vehicle announcements and debuts.
Here's a look at our most important stories from June 9-15, 2019.
2020 McLaren 720S Spider
Roadshow's managing editor, Steven Ewing, had a ton of fun cracking the whip on the 2020 McLaren 720S Spider; a machine he calls "One of the best-driving cars you can buy today."

Ride shotgun with Jon Wong as he outlines this small crossover's massive improvements.
