2013 BMW 750Li vs 2013 Jaguar XJL Supercharged! [Head 2 Head Episode 35]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman gets behind the wheel of two of the finest long wheelbase luxury sedans - the 2013 BMW 750Li and the Jaguar XJL Supercharged - to see which one of them does justice to their $100,000 plus price tags.

First, Jonny heads to the track to see what kinds of numbers these large, premium sedans put down, then he sees how they both handle on the rough roads outside of Santa Barbara, before finally getting chauffered in the back seat of the cars to examine their distinct approaches to high-end luxury.

So which one will stand out as the best in its class? Stay tuned to find out.

2013 Audi S4 AWD vs 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design! [Head 2 Head Episode 34]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 Volvo S60 T6 AWD R-Design against returning contender, the 2013 Audi S4.

Before hitting the road, the engine placements of both competing sedans are compared against segment contemporaries such the Cadillac ATS & BMW’s 335i. Why? Because while both competitors are AWD, they start life as FWD. As a result, both vehicles have unusual engine placements.

A mix of limit testing & canyon carving follows as Jonny provides insight on both cars, examining everything from driving impressions to interior ergonomics.

Does Volvo’s beefed up S60 have what it takes to dethrone Audi’s “sleeper sedan?”

490hp, small, very pretty: is that enough to make the fastest F-Type a 911 rival? And would an Aston do the job of a Brit roadster better? This video might expand on some of these points.

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.

Up!
