2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 vs. 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition! [Head 2 Head Episode 52]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman travels to Barber Motorsports Park for a head to head matchup with the brand new Chevy Camaro Z/28 and a well known heavyweight, the Nissan GT-R.

But not just any GT-R, the 2014 Track Edition which packs a 545 hp twin-turbo V-6, a 6-speed dual clutch transmission, sticky Dunlop tires and AWD traction into a car without rear seats.

The Z/28, by way of contrast, features a massive 7.0-liter naturally-aspirated V-8, a 6-speed manual transmission, and tail-out RWD. While it does still have rear seats, nearly every other non-essential component has been removed. Moreover, the Z28’s tires might be even stickier! The front ones, enormous 305-sections, are certainly the widest tires ever bolted to a production car.

Both cars are phenomenal, and both cars make rational men scream, “Gimme!” But only one can come out on top. Watch and find out!

Grandmas Nissan GT-R Launch Control Reaction: GTR 700+HP Hilarious!

YouTuber Duskin Terteling explains: “I gave my grandma a ride in my GT-R for the first time and she had no idea I was filming because I hid the camera. Needless to say her reaction was priceless!”

The most memorable moment was when Terteling’s grandmother asked him if the GT-R was similar to “Joey’s car, the Prius”.

2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack vs 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus! [Head 2 Head Episode 33]

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago pits the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack against the 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus.

Performance wise, both these all-wheel drive monsters represent the cream of the crop from their respective manufacturers. Nissan’s GT-R comes out of the gate swinging with it’s track pack, but the R8 packs a twin-clutch transmission as well as more power than previous R8’s.

In between some dynamic testing & canyon carving, Randy Pobst weighs in with his two cents as he joins Carlos at the Streets of Willow racetrack.

Does Audi’s V-10 goliath have what it takes to topple the legendary “Godzilla”?

2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack: Godzilla Levels Up! [Ignition Episode 67]

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst head to the track with the most extreme GTR yet, the 2014 GTR Track Pack.

Unlike in previous years, the 2014 GT-R does not receive any power or torque upgrades, so its 3.8-liter twin-turbo V-6 produces the same 545 horsepower and 463 lb-ft of torque as it did in 2013.

That’s not to say that Nissan left the VQ38DETT alone — the engine receives new injectors that provide more torque on the high side of the rev range and an oil pan baffle that stabilizes oil behavior and pressure when the car is being driven hard.

The six-speed, twin-clutch gearbox and Atessa all-wheel-drive system remain unchanged.

2013 Nissan GT-R (European Version)

The new GT-R features a raft of improvements. The 3.8-liter twin-tutiosrbo V6 now pumps out 545HP (550PS) and 463 lb-ft (627 Nm) of torque and sports high-output injectors, a new relief valve for the turbocharger bypass and a new oil pan baffle.

The chassis has gained reinforcements to the dash panel bar and instrument member panel to increase rigidity. The dampers, springs and front anti-roll bars have been revised to offer better stability at high speeds and the driveshafts have been reinforced for improved reliability.

As a result, the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) time has dropped by 0.1 seconds, to just 2.7, and according to Nissan, the 2013 GT-R is capable oflapping the Nordschleife in7:18.6compared to the 7:21.0 time of its predecessor.
