The XCAR review of 2013: August

August was a hectic month for the XCAR team -- we played in the Peugeot 208 GTI, drove some awesome BMW Roadsters, discovered the history behind the Ford GT name, had a go in a lairy Lexus, steered the new Porsche Cayman S and had a drive in the all-new BMW 4 Series.
