Lamborghini vs. Turbo Ford GT vs. Audi R8 Supercharged
The Smoking Tire heads out to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch in a 370Z Roadster to find out which car can attain the highest speed on Spring Mountain's 2.7 mile road course. Can Matt Farah, driving a Lamborghini LP550-2, outgun a Twin turbo Ford GT and a Supercharged Audi R8? We will see.
Can a big Lexus be fun?
Matt takes the Lexus LS460 F-Sport in the one place you'll probably never
see one: the canyons. Time to find out if Lexus's newest full size luxury
car is deserving of its F-Sport badge.
The Jaguar XF-RS HATES tires
The Smoking Tire finds a remote corner of the Mojave desert to test the
fastest four-door Jaguar money can buy, the XF-RS. It has a 550 HP
Supercharged V8, a sticky set of tires, and a giant wing, but is that
enough to unseat the M5, Audi's RS7, or the E63 from the top of the sedan
Pantera: Restore or Pro-Tour
The Smoking Tire takes to the canyons with TWO beautiful Detomaso
Pantera's. One is a highly original car with a big-dollar concours
restoration, the other is a completely customized SEMA build by the
legendary Ringbrothers. Which way would you have it?
C7 Corvette - Yes, it Really is That Good
Matt heads to Monterey, CA during Pebble Beach week for a 300-mile test
drive of the new C7 Corvette Stingray with Z51 package. It's so good it's
practically unbelievable, and for the first time ever, Corvette owners
won't have to make excuses.
The Man Who Defines Lamborghini: Valentino Balboni - /DRIVEN
It's rare to find one person who can define an entire automotive brand.
With Lamborghini, one can only look at Valentino Balboni. Starting as an
intern with the car company, he moved his way up to test driver, driving
more Lamborghinis than anyone else on the planet. Now, he's a living
legend who defines and represents one of the greatest super car companies
in the world, Lamborghini.
What happened when this Evo chased a Porsche?
The Smoking Tire heads out to Willow Springs International Raceway to test
a friend's Mitsubishi Evo X, tuned by Road Race Engineering. Is the Evo
quick enough to keep up with a Porsche 996 Cup Car? We'll see.....
Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison
1955 Bel Air, one of the best handling hot rods around. We toss this 55
year-old car through some of the tightest curves in California to find out
if there really is such a thing as a Hot Rod for drivers.

guys from turboBuick.com and learns

The Smoking Tire hits the Mailbu canyons for one last hurrah with our
Shelby GT500, and we brought along our closest competitor: the Classic
Design Concepts/Exxodus Pictures "Firebreather," a 600-horsepower
Firebird-converted Chevy Camaro. For more info about the
Firebreather, check out www.Firebreathercar.com
Air Suspension - Can You Really Have it All?
In the past I've thought of air suspension as a modification reserved for
trucks, low riders, and show cars. But what about sports cars? Is it
possible to have the look you want at a show, the handling you want at the
limit, and the practicality of clearing speed bumps and driveways? The guys
from Accuair Suspensions say there is, so we put their Audi S4 to the test.
How good is a Supercharged Lamborghini Gallardo?
The Smoking Tire finds the best driving road in California and the best car
we've ever driven to tackle it: VF Engineering's all new Supercharged
Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4. With 760HP and 600 lb/ft of torque going
through all 4 wheels, this car redefines fast.
