Off-Road Camper Wars! Ford 4x4 Sportsmobile vs Pace Arrow RV [Dirt Every Day Episode 18]

On this episode Fred checks out the Sportsmobile 4x4 Ford Van.

The Sportsmobile is great if back country exploring and camping are your favorite pastime. It is designed for off road use, and has everything and the kitchen sink. But how does a monster Pace Arrow motorhome compare for off roading? Fred finds out when they RV in the dirt.

2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! [Head 2 Head Episode 44]

On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model.

Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8’s actual output. So, they take them to the dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what’s what.

The results very well may shock and amaze you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you’ve walked away from it.

How much the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most. Have a watch!

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!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4Matic Wagon vs. Icon Derelict! [Head 2 Head Episode 41]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, certified wagon-freak Jonny Lieberman pits two of the very coolest station wagons in the world against each other.

More than just cool, these are also two of the rarest wagons on earth. In fact, the E63 AMG Wagon is the rarest car Mercedes sells in the U.S. It’s special order only through the dealer — it’s not even on their website. Of course, the Icon Derelict is its own form of rare, being one of one.

The Derelict started life out back in 1952 as a Chrysler Town & Country Custom Wagon, but things have changed. As for the E63 Wagon, we learned at Best Driver’s Car that the stealthy Mercedes is quicker than several supercars. But does it have what it takes to defeat Icon’s icon? Watch and find out!
