Redesigned Lexus IS heads to Detroit auto show - Autoweek TV with Rory Carroll

Quick, name the game pieces in Monopoly. There's the racecar, the battle ship... then maybe an oil derrick... Anyway, just like Disney announcing that this is your last chance ever to buy The Emperor's New Groove on Blu Ray, Hasbro has announced that one of the game pieces from Monopoly will...actually if you look at the Monopoly Facebook page, it looks like each of the current game-pieces have been charged with a crime, and maybe are going to prison. Naturally, everyone is freaking out about saving the little metal things that they might never come into contact with. Why do we care? Because there's a racecar, and it must be saved. Save the race car: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130109/NASCAR/130109864?utm_source=youtube&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social Nissan has announced that its Detroit auto show booth will have its own funky fragrance. According to their press release, which is pretty hilarious by the way, they're hoping that spraying the booth with a "distinctive fragrance" will create a "complete experience for visitors." Have these people ever been to the Detroit Auto Show? Like, on a non-press day? When it's busy, it's like standing in the men's bathroom during the seventh inning stretch at the old Tiger stadium. Sardine cans afford you more personal space. But yeah, we're sure that Nissan booth is going to be just like a luxury hotel.

It also has a Nike logo under each headlight. We read the press release, but Lexus didn't say whether it would be made in sweatshops by seven year olds, or when they'd start using the slogan "Just do it." Maybe we'll get some driving gloves that make the Lexus sign when you do this.

Take a detailed walkaround of the 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray with Autoweek technical editor and resident Corvette Expert Dale Jewett. Dale and Autoweek executive creative director Ken Ross get up close and personal with the new C7. They discuss the Stingray's design - how form indeed follows function.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class debut ahead of Detroit auto show -- Autoweek TV with Natalie Neff
It went by quickly, but the first week of 2013 is almost in the history books. I'm Natalie, here to wrap it up with a Friday edition of Autoweek TV. Here's the news: Automakers sold 14.4 million cars and trucks in the United States last year. That's the best year for sales since 2007. Here are some of the big winners: -- BMW topped Mercedes-Benz to claim the luxury sales crown. It did that with a big push in December, when BMW sales were up nearly 40 percent. -- The best-selling car and truck were the perennial winners -- the Toyota Camry and the Ford F-series. -- Ford Mustang sales rose nearly 20 percent last year, but it still fell about 1,300 cars short of beating the Chevy Camaro. More about the 2012 U.S. auto sales: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130103/CARNEWS/130109975?utm_source=youtu be&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social OK, time for another Detroit auto show preview. Today it's the coupe and convertible versions of the Mercedes-Benz E-class. We got a look at the restyled E-class sedan late last month. The major change is up front, with a restyled nose that drops the quad-headlight design. Inside, the gear shift has been moved from the center console to the steering column. The engine lineup for the coupe and convertible remains unchanged -- either a normal V6 or twin-turbo V8. We'll see the real things in just more than a week. The restyled E-class cars go on sale this summer. For more details on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class: http://www.autoweek.com/article/20130104/DETROIT/130109973?utm_source=youtu be&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=social Finally, Mazda is ready to make another push in the hotly contested midsize sedan battle with its redesigned Mazda 6. The 2014 Mazda6, built in Japan, is on sale now. It carries a base sticker price of $21,675, which is less than $200 more than the 2013 model. Power comes from a 2.5-liter four, rated at 184 horsepower. You can choose between a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic. Next fall there will be a diesel engine option. That's a car we're looking forward to taking for a test drive.

Hemi Buildup on a '55 Chevy Bel Air! - Roadkill Ep. 29
In Episode 8 of Roadkill we introduced you to the greatest engine swap project ever—a Hemi into a 1955 Chevy Bel Air. Nearly two years later, we finally get Mike Finnegan's Mopar-powered Tri-Five on the road, but not without a few problems along the way. Blown head gaskets, frayed wires, and severe sleep-deprivation are all overcome as Finnegan, Freiburger, and friends push to get this polarizing project car running again in time for an epic road trip. The BlaspHEMI '55 Chevy rides on a Jim Meyer Racing Gasser tube chassis with Viking coilover dampers and Firestone Cheater slicks out back. Up front the car has a tubular straight axle, parallel leaf springs and tires small enough to fit on a VW Bug. The rear axle is a John's Industries 9-inch with 5.43:1 gears. The Hemi began life as a 528ci Mopar crate engine, which Finnegan rebuilt with a 0.030-inch overbore, ported aluminum heads, and a Comp Cams solid roller cam. The mill is topped off with a Hilborn stack injection system with EFI controlled by a FAST EFI ECU. An Aeromotive Stealth fuel tank and pump provides the fuel while MSD provides the spark. The engine is backed by a Tremec Magnum six-speed manual gearbox with an American Powertrain installation kit and a twin-disc clutch. The car was wired with a Speedwires kit and the guys built their own fenderwell headers using parts from Hedman. To save weight, the original steel front clip was swapped out for a lightweight fiberglass tilt front end from Unlimited Products and the windows were replaced with lexan parts from ProGlass. The rollcage is a 10-point arrangement built from chrome-moly steel and TIG welded to the floor and frame. To save a ton of time, High Tech Auto Wraps covered the car in flat black vinyl instead of paint while the last of the parts were installed onto the car.

2013 Lexus ES vs GS 0-60 MPH Mashup Review: What's the best new Lexus sedan?
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Here's an interesting question. What is the best new Lexus Sedan? Is it the 2013 Lexus ES300h or is it the 2013 Lexus AWD GS350? The new Lexus ES300h is of course a large 200 horsepower hybrid 4-door Lexus sedan that gets an amazing 40 MPG combined. While the new 2013 Lexus AWD GS350 is also a large 4-door Lexus sedan but with All-wheel-drive and of course a very powerful 3.5L V6 that puts out 306 HP. In another fun and exclusive TFLcar Mashup review we try to find out which of these very similar Lexus sedan's is the better car. It is a matchup of power versus fuel economy or perhaps another way to look at it might be brown versus technology.
