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?

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.

2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon! The Modern Hammer Wagon? [Ignition Episode 76]

On this episode of Ignition, Jonny Lieberman travels to Germany to drive a car we don’t get, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Edition 507 Wagon.

Through the winding roads of the Black Forest to the mean straights of Germany’s notorious Autobahn, Lieberman puts the 507 horsepower, 450 pound-feet of torque super wagon through its paces.

The question isn’t whether or not a wagon fanatic like Lieberman likes the 507 wagon (he does), but if the new AMG grocery hauler can live up to the legend that came before it, the mighty Hammer Wagon.

Desert Proofing the Ford Raptor! [Dirt Every Day Episode 2]

On this episode of Dirt Every Day, Fred Williams up fits and outfits one of the coolest 4x4’s on the market today, the Ford Raptor. Raptors are high performance desert machines, but we found one that earns it’s owner a living each week banging around on an obscure desert compound.

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.

The Testarossa Presence

For a supercar, the Testarossa deserves much more respect than it garners. Its beauty has been overlooked by some in favor of the Countach. Now discounted to a fraction of its original price, it waits humbly for a return to grace.

Vintage car collector Joe Ventura waits along with it. In the meantime, he’s lucky enough to live daily with this beautiful redhead.
