Alpina B6 vs. BMW M6 – Which Is the Better Gran Coupe? – Head 2 Head Ep. 83

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKqHQ_PvlXM
This is a special Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), because we’re comparing two cars that look nearly identical on the outside. They’re both 600hp BMW 6-Series Gran Coupes, but the similarities between the B6 and M6 start to fade after that. The Alpina B6 is a well-rounded, incredibly fast luxury car with all-wheel drive, smooth suspension, and an eight-speed torque-converter automatic. The BMW M6 is a motorsports-bred, rear-wheel-drive monster with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, quick-ratio steering, and suspension that favors handling over ride quality. Motor Trend Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman spend time with both to decide which makes the better Gran Coupe. Then, with the help of hall-of-fame race car driver Randy Pobst, we find out which four-door coupe is faster around the track. This episode has it all—burnouts, drag races, hot laps, and backseat drivers.

2017 Mercedes-AMG S65 vs. 2017 Bentley Continental GT Black Edition — Head 2 Head Ep. 84

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqyctjGbxtU
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), we bring in the big guns! Each of these convertibles costs more than a quarter-million dollars, seats four people, and has a twin-turbocharged, 12-cylinder engine. This is the first time in 45 years Mercedes-Benz has made an S-Class convertible, but can the Mercedes brand compete with a Bentley? Then again, the Continental is loosely based on a decade-old Volkswagen Group architecture. MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman head to New York City and then out into the fall leaves to figure out which is the best big convertible.

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio vs. Everything! – Head 2 Head Ep. 85

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGAU7aFMFwQ
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Motor Trend Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman are in a bind. Before having driven Alfa Romeo's first rear-wheel-drive sports sedan in 30 years, they didn't know what its closest competitor would be. So they brought all of them: a 2016 BMW M3 Competition Package, a 2016 Cadillac ATS-V, and a 2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 S. After looking at hall-of-fame race car driver Randy Pobst's laptimes around Chuckwalla Valley Raceway, they picked the strongest competitor to do battle with the Alfa. Then, the duo hit the road to see which is the best midsize luxury sport sedan.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro LT 1LE vs. 2016 BMW M2 – Head 2 Head Ep. 86

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCp3KOJ4jZQ
On this episode of Tire Rack's Head 2 Head (http://www.tirerack.com), join MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman to find out if Chevy’s 2017 Camaro LT 1LE can beat on the BMW M2 the way its V-8 big brother defeated the M4. For the first time ever, Chevy is offering the 1LE elite track package on its six-cylinder Camaro. The 1LE is no slouch, accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 5.0 seconds, thanks to the 335hp, 7,000-rpm V-6 under its matte black hood. The BMW M2 is more similar than you may think—a handling-focused rear-wheel-drive coupe with a six-cylinder. Its twin-turbo straight-six produces 30 more horsepower, enough for a blazing 4.4-second run to 60 mph, but is that enough to justify the M2’s approximately $15,000 price premium?

2017 Jaguar F-Pace S vs. 2017 Porsche Macan GTS – Head 2 Head Ep. 87

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54p_IaGUJqQ
On this episode of Tire Rack's Head 2 Head (http://www.tirerack.com), we travel to the frozen, snow-covered Bridgestone Winter Driving School to test two high-performance SUVs. MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman pit the Porsche Macan GTS against the Jaguar F-Pace S in a series of handling and acceleration challenges. Rumor has it that Jaguar delayed the F-Pace’s introduction until it was a worthy competitor of the spectacular Macan, so we find out how it stacks up. Each vehicle has a forced-induction 3.0L V-6 and a rear-biased all-wheel-drive system. Which is better? There’s only one way to find out.

2017 Tesla Model S P100D vs. 2017 Audi RS7 Performance – Head 2 Head Ep. 88

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=scyYfbL5P9w
The world’s quickest sedans battle it out on this episode of Tire Rack's Head 2 Head (http://www.tirerack.com). The Audi RS7 and Tesla Model S have nearly identical silhouettes and are within 0.2 inch in length. They’re both all-wheel-drive, four-door, hatchback sedans with an eye toward luxury and supercar-taunting powertrains. The RS7 was the quickest four-door car MOTOR TREND had ever tested, but the Performance model adds 55 more horsepower for a total of 605 hp from its 4.0L twin-turbo V-8. The Tesla Model S P90D was even quicker, and now the P100D with Ludicrous Plus proves to be even more speedy. It is, in fact, the quickest-accelerating vehicle MOTOR TREND has ever tested—ever. MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman get the two über-sedans together to see which world’s quickest sedan is better. This episode includes a special appearance by the fastest gasoline-powered car you can buy today, the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S, and a whole lot of horse manure.

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF vs. 2017 Toyota 86 – Head 2 Head Ep. 89

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSq5Zb5ZNWY
Wondering if a Miata can beat a Hellcat? Then this Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com) is for you. This is an epic battle between two of the best sports cars on sale today. Yep, you read that correct: the Miata and 86 are real sports cars in the traditional sense, focusing on the driving experience rather than delivering outright speed. MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman take to the backroads to decide whether the new Targa-topped, retractable hardtop Miata is more fun than the new, updated BRZ, err… FR-S… err… GT-86, err…86. Then, they head to the racetrack where they’re joined by SCCA Hall of Fame race car driver Randy Pobst. After he sets a lap time for each car, we see whether a 707hp Dodge Charger Hellcat can beat either of the two cars—despite having more than double the horsepower of a Miata and 86 combined. You may be surprised by the outcome, but to find out which is the best sports car, you’ll have to watch this episode of Head 2 Head.

2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 vs. 2017 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350R – Head 2 Head Ep. 90

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMNifBdm_o4
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman take a hard, smoky look at the latest battle in a war that began 50 years ago. In 1967, Chevrolet introduced the Camaro to do battle against Ford’s hugely popular Mustang. The ponycar war has been raging ever since. While there have been fantastic Mustangs and Camaros for generations, there have never been two quite like these. In the white corner sits the most powerful Camaro ever. Kicking out a stonking 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque, the supercharged Camaro is capable of both humbling supercars and the greatest burnouts we’ve ever seen. The Shelby is down on power but is up on magic. Also able to embarrass cars costing two or three (or four/five) times as much, the GT350R has something special going on. Which of these two performance giants is the current king of the ponycar? Watch and find out!

2017 Jaguar XE 35t vs. 2017 Mercedes-AMG C43 – Head 2 Head Ep. 91

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqa9PBuuBIk
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman explore the burgeoning segment of mid-grade performance machines. Way back in Episode 67, the then-brand-new Jaguar XE beat the once-dominant BMW 335i to capture the crown. In terms of pure driving joy, Jag had Bimmer’s number. But there’s a new AMG in town, and the boys can’t even agree on whether or not it’s a “real” one. On the one hand, 12 months ago, the essentially unchanged C43 was sold as a non-AMG C450 4Matic. On the other, in terms of acceleration, the C43 barrels down a dragstrip like a real AMG. Acceleration notwithstanding, is the C43 good enough to stick it to the subtle, lithe, lively Jaguar?

2018 Mercedes-AMG GT R vs. 2017 Nissan GT-R Nismo – Head 2 Head Ep. 92

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ff-2XCdy93A
On this episode of Head 2 Head presented by Tire Rack (http://www.tirerack.com), Jonny Lieberman and Randy Pobst examine two of the highest performing vehicles on sale today, and they’re both called GT-Rs. Or is that GT Rs? From Nissan comes the Nismo version of its long-running supercar. Power is unchanged for 2017—still a healthy 600 hp—but structurally, the body in white has been strengthened. This seemingly simple change pays huge dividends in terms of overall performance and is in line with Nissan’s mantra of gradual improvement. The AMG GT R, on the other hand, is pretty radical compared to the regular-strength GT S. Power is way up, the front and rear tracks are wider, the torque tube is carbon fiber, the gears in the twin clutch are different, the body is flared, and the exhaust, front splitter, side skirts, and carbon-fiber rear wing are brand-new. Let’s not forget the four-wheel steering. Each of these monsters was created to do damage to the Nürburgring, but how will they do in the twisted canyons of Southern California, as well as a slightly less formidable racetrack?
