2015 McLaren 650S at the yacht club | Shaun Keenan for Ignition

Tested (again): 2015 McLaren 650S Spider

Dream Weaver For many, dreams are the closest they will come to experiencing a car like this. I thought it would be fun to change that for a lucky few. So, instead of a long drive in the country, this time I went for a relatively short drive around my neighbourhood and other affluent parts of Oakville to gauge people’s… Read more →

2015 Ford Edge Sport | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Ford Edge Sport

The Mustang of Crossovers 2.0 On the mountainous, desert roads outside of Scottsdale (in and around the Tonto National Forest in particular) the Sport model demonstrated that you can have a sporty, dynamic handling crossover vehicle without having to shell out the big bucks for a German steed. When Ford entered the market with the Edge in 2006, the crossover… Read more →

2015 McLaren 650S Spider| Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 McLaren 650S Spider

But it feels like just yesterday that I and the then-new 2009 Challenger SRT bonded on the high-performance test track during AJAC’s… Read more →

2015 Lexus RC F | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Lexus RC F

Heir to a King The LFA Supercar is one heck of a car that, for a few short years, fulfilled its duty as the pinnacle of Lexus high-performance. Well out of the price range for most new car buyers, I would have given my left testicle – kidney at least – just to drive it for a few minutes, but… Read more →

2015 Subaru WRK STI | Shaun Keenan

Tested: 2015 Subaru WRX STI

A Wolf in Wolf Clothing My chance to drive the 2015 WRX STI finally came during a Subaru Canada club event at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park earlier this year. It wasn’t a full day of flat-out, white-knuckled lapping, but it was a great opportunity to get some seat time, feel out the changes and preview the new DDT. First is… Read more →
