2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs. 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! [Head 2 Head Episode 52]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R.

But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD traction into a car without rear seats.

The Z/28, by way of contrast, features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28’s tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car.

Both cars are phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, “Gimme!” But only one can come out on top. Watch and find out!

2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! [Head 2 Head Episode 42]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our annual Best Driver’s Car competition with this year’s winning Porsche 911 Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12 Berlinetta.

The Ferrari is the most powerful car we’ve ever taken around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12.

The Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM’s venerable small block, a 6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of torque.

The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back every BDC challenger we’ve thrown at it.

Does the Corvette have what it takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

Vossen 2014 Chevrolet Impala

Any car will look better, even one that didn’t look so hot in the first place…

Thankfully, Chevrolet have done a great job of styling (and engineering) the Impala and if the extent of the modifications is not excessive, it wears them well. This Impala is riding on Vossen wheels (VVSCV3 and VVSCV4), that are of a simple and elegant design.

2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray Z51! Testing the New High Tech Vette! [Ignition Episode 77]

Finally! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago gets behind the wheel of Chevrolet’s hotly anticipated 2014 Corvette Stingray Z51, the most technologically advanced production Corvette ever made.

First, Carlos heads to the test track to put the reborn 460hp V8-powered Stingray through the full barrage of Motor Trend’s instrumented tests: 0-60 mph acceleration, quarter mile, 60-0 mph braking, lateral acceleration, and figure-eight.

The raw data backs up what Carlos can already feel from the driver’s seat - the 2014 Corvette goes fast, stops quick and handles corners with ease. Then, its off to the winding roads of Central California to see how the C7 Vette’s continuously variable-locking differential, magnetic damping, rev matching and other high-tech features perform in the real world.

This is the New Transformer 4’s 2014 Camaro Bumblebee Concept (Official)

The previously showed 1967 Camaro-based Bumblebee car will likely be used as an entry in the film before the so-called 2014 Concept Camaro Bumblebee steps in to take the first role.

Just as there’s no question that GM will use the placement of the Camaro in the movie to launch a Transformers edition of the car onto the market (as it did with the previous films), there’s also no doubt that it will look different than this concept that comes with a newly designed face, different than the one we saw on the facelifted model.
