Matt always buys impractical cars and tries to justify them as practical, even though they are far from it. Dan makes him put his money where his mouth is by holding a practicality challenge against the most practical car in the US: a base Nissan Versa.
Lamborghini Countach vs. Aventador Roadster

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

the rare Twin-turbo engine. This is how
subtlety should be done.

truck, turning an otherwise humble work vehicle into a quarter-mile
monster. So when we called sport trucks "hilariously useless," he took
personal offense and offered us a chance at redemption. Will the Canyon
