2018 Lexus LC500: Never Judge a Book by Its Cover! – Ignition Ep. 172

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHw-uuKzdBs
On this episode of Igniton presented by TireRack.com (http://www.tirerack.com), we dive into the big question surrounding the new Lexus LC: What is it? It sure looks like a sports car, so could it be a modern Toyota Supra? Then again, the badge says Lexus, so is it a cushy luxury barge like the last SC? MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa examines the new Lexus flagship in the form of the 471hp LC500—with a special guest appearance by the hybrid V-6–powered LC500h. Ascending more than 4,000 feet, the mountain roads surrounding beautiful Palm Springs, California, provide the perfect test, separating the backroad bruisers from the boulevard cruisers. Which will it be?

2017 Ferrari GTC4Lusso: Why Ferrari Still Gets It! – Ignition Ep. 173

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6HjWkU796Y
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa goes in search of snow to test out Ferrari’s GTC4Lusso. While almost every other automaker has dabbled in crossovers, including chief rival Lamborghini, Ferrari is sticking to the cars it’s always built. Rather than build an SUV, the Maranello masters have taken the traits that make people love SUVs (hatchback cargo versatility and all-wheel drive) and grafted them onto a V-12–powered four-seat grand tourer. The GTC4Lusso isn’t a completely new idea—it replaces the FF—but it’s significantly updated with the latest version of Ferrari’s amazing 4RM all-wheel-drive system, rear-wheel steering, and an upgraded, 680hp version of the howling 6,262cc V-12.

2017 Volvo V90 Cross Country: The Wagon Is Back – With an Off-Road Twist! – Ignition Ep. 174

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FayKAK3Qg2o
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), guest host Randy Pobst puts the all-new Volvo V90 Cross Country through its paces both on the road and off it. Starting at the infamous DirtFish Rally School, Pobst pushes the V90 CC to the limit through dirt, gravel, and mud to find out just how capable this new wagon really is. Featuring a turbocharged and supercharged four-cylinder engine, the Cross Country puts out 316 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque and sends it to the ground through an eight-speed transmission. Not afraid to show his love for wagons, Pobst maintains Volvo is having to dress up its best-looking wagon ever like an SUV in order to sell it in America. With its additional ride height and rugged-looking body cladding, is the Cross Country just a cynical marketing exercise, or is it a fresh new take on the wagon format? Watch and find out!

2017 Nissan R35 GT-R, Hakosuka & R32 Skyline: The Godzilla Legend Lives on! – Ignition Ep. 176

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DkGNPz89FA
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), we bring the Nissan R35 GT-R, now in its ninth model year, to meet the two generations of GT-R that created the Godzilla legend. First, we drive a C10 Hakosuka Skyline GT-R, the first Nissan to wear the badge, to hear the sounds of the 7,400-rpm S20 straight-six in all of its incredible 24-valve glory. Then, MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa takes an R32 Skyline GT-R out to see if the twin turbos can overwhelm the computer-controlled all-wheel drive. Do these old Skylines live up to their reputation, or have the hands of time eroded their greatness? And how does the current GT-R fit into the story?

2018 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 1LE: Chevy Sharpens Its Lead Pipe – Ignition Ep. 179

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWCwaF-akd0
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jonny Lieberman heads to the Okanagan Highlands in north central Washington State to check out the most track-focused Camaro to date, the all-new ZL1 1LE. Packing the same 650hp supercharged 6.2L V-8 as the “normal” ZL1, the 1LE version adds better aerodynamics and aero bits that produce real downforce, race car–derived Multimatic spool valve dampers, and special R-compound tires from Goodyear. After bashing the big Camaro around some backroads, Lieberman bumps into none other than Randy Pobst, who convinces him to head to a new racetrack in Osoyoos, Canada, called Area 27. It’s there that the two of them put the ZL1 1LE through its paces before Lieberman hands the car over to Pobst so the pro race car driver can set a hot lap. How’d the car do, and how did both Lieberman and Pobst like driving it?

2017 Porsche 718 Cayman S: Better Than Ever, But What’s That Sound? – Ignition Ep. 180

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iaGZ04_HLac
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jonny Lieberman goes for a drive in his friend Derek Powell’s Porsche Cayman GT4. Why? Because Lieberman suspects the new Cayman S, in typical Porsche fashion, is just as capable as the top dog from the previous iteration of the mid-engine two-seater. The two hop into the brand-new, four-cylinder, turbocharged 718 to see if there’s any truth to Jonny’s Lieberman’s assertion. After coming to no definitive answer while blasting around California’s Angeles Crest Highway, the boys decide to take both Caymans to the Streets of Willow to see what pro driver Randy Pobst can make of them. Is the new 718 Cayman S good enough to beat and beat up on the GT4?

2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive—Is This Super Sedan a Proper Porsche? – Ignition Ep. 178

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I7mPLvJ5aos
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack, Jonny Lieberman explores the aspects of the all-new, second-generation four-door from Porsche. The facts of the car are (of course) impressive: 550 hp from a 4.0L, twin-turbo V-8, coupled with a new eight-speed PDK transmission that powers all four wheels, and all-wheel steering, which means the big Porsche is a serious performer. Since the Executive model gets a near–6-inch stretch, it’s easy to declare the Panamera the world’s ultimate factory limousine. However, is this the sedan Porsche should be building? To answer this question, Lieberman travels 89 years into the past and has a look at what might have been. What does he discover?

2018 Kia Stinger GT: Rear-Wheel Drive, Korean Style! – Ignition Ep. 181

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSWQTkbTYIQ
On this episode of Ignition presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Randy Pobst gets behind the wheel of an unlikely new entry in the sports-sedan segment: the Kia Stinger GT. It’s got a hot, turbocharged engine and rear-wheel drive, just the way Randy likes it—and in no time, he’s sliding it sideways. But a great sports sedan is about more than just cheap thrills, which means really putting the Kia through its paces on the legendary backroads high above the City of Angels. The true test, though, lies at Streets of Willow, where Pobst shows the Kia no mercy, hammering it hard and pushing it to its limits. Does the Kia fulfill its mission of creating a car tailored to the enthusiast?
