Official: 2014 Audi A8 / S8

Although the styling updates are not radical, they manage to improve the overall look of the car. The redesigned headlights and taillights are the most obvious changes, bringing a more contemporary look to the A8 – especially the intricate Matrix LED headlamps, which are available as optional equipment (LED headlights are standard for all V8 models).

More significant changes have taken place under the hood, with the 2014 A8 engines gaining power and efficiency upgrades. The 3.0 TFSI now has 310 PS (306hp, +20hp), while the 4.0 TFSI churns out 435PS (429hp, +9hp). The diesels are also more powerful - the 3.0 TDI Clean Diesel now has 258 PS (254hp, +4hp), while the 4.2 TDI Clean Diesel delivers 385 PS (380hp, +30hp) and an impressive 850 Nm (626 lb-ft) of torque (+50 Nm/36 lb-ft).

MAIER Racing 1966 Mustang Coupé [Big Muscle]

If you’ve ever driven a bone-stock mid-1960’s Ford Mustang, then you know that these little cars make wonderful cruisers. They possess movie-star good looks and turn heads everywhere. Drive them hard though and you’ll soon realize that what lies beneath that sheet metal is usually in need of some serious improvement.

Mike Maier of Maier Racing is the owner of this stunning blue 1966 coupe, a car that was supposed to have been bought as a play toy for him and his wife. However when you grow up in a racing family, leaving things alone is generally not an option.

Little by little the Mustang evolved away from the family hot-rod and into a test bed for new parts. More importantly than that though, it’s now one of the baddest street ‘Stangs on the planet.

Most people will tell you that “Bigger is always better”… one drive in the Maier Racing ‘66 coupe however may make you rethink that statement entirely.

2014 Aston Martin Vanquish vs 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed! [Head 2 Head Episode 38]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, two of England’s most prestigious brands duke it out as Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago pits the 2013 Bentley Continental GT Speed against Aston Martin’s 2014 Vanquish. With names like Vanquish & GT Speed, it’s inevitable that some spirited driving awaits. Join Carlos as he he flogs both these fine automobiles through Motor Trend’s dynamic testing course before heading out to carve up the canyon roads.

Both Aston Martin & Bentley are synonymous with luxury, class & the finer things in life. However, there’s nothing gentlemanly about the 12 cylinder motors each car packs under it’s bonnet. Even more savage is their more than 500 horse power capabilities. Add carbon ceramic brakes into the mix & price tags near $300,000 & you’ve got an exotic match up.

2014 Audi R8 Spyder vs 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet! [Head 2 Head Episode 37]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, it’s sibling rivalry time. Jonny Lieberman heads to the American Southwest in Utah with two of the best convertibles money can, the Audi R8 Spyder and the Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet. Amazingly, these two high-end, high performance wonders are both manufactured by the Volkswagen Automotive Group.

Starting in Las Vegas, Lieberman works his way to a near magical road in Escalante, Utah to figure out which of these German wonders is the best drop top. Why Utah? After getting a good look at Highway 12, you’ll never ask that question again. The two cars aren’t bad to look at either.

Will the Audi’s AWD grip and extra horsepower be enough to counter the Porsche’s lower weight and RWD sports car advantage? Will the manual Porsche have the strength and the chops to take on the higher tech, dual-clutch equipped R8?
