2015 Subaru WRX vs 2014 Ford Focus ST! [Head 2 Head Episode 50]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman gets his hands on the all-new, 2015 Subaru WRX, as well as one of Motor Trend’s favorite pocket rockets, the Ford Focus ST.

Each car costs about $30,000, sports a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with similar power outputs, and features a 6-speed manual transmission. The Subaru of course features a sporty version of the brand’s “symmetrical AWD” while the Focus makes due with just the front wheels driven.

However, since it first appeared, the Focus ST has wowed the Motor Trend staff with ability to dance around corners and, generally, not drive and feel like a front-wheel driver.

We like the Focus ST so much that we invited it to last year’s Best Driver’s Car. But does the Ford have what it takes to beat the latest street-tamed rally baby from Subaru? You’re going to have to watch and find out.

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.

The owner is hard on his equipment and we took this poor bird of prey under our wing for a week to transform it into a more vicious desert predator.

Formula Ford EcoBoost. Street Legal Racer on Road and Nürburgring [Chris Harris On Cars]

You see, big car companies can have a sense of humour!

Take a Formula Ford racer, add a tuned 1 litre 3cyl motor with over 200hp and you have a car which ace racer Nick Tandy got around the Ring in 7min 22sec. That’s special, but even more special when it’s on the public highway.
