The 700 HP RennTech CLS63 AMG - /TUNED
Hartmut Feyhl left AMG after 15 years to start his own tuning company,
RennTech, which is now one of the most respected AMG tuners in the world.
His products range from simple software upgrades to full racing builds
based on AMG street cars. We take his new, 700 horsepower CLS63 for a spin
and establish a new benchmark for luxury sedans: must be able to do
burnouts while moving at highway speeds.
Is the Mazda MX-5 Any Good? - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Chris Harris has been known to not like the Mazda MX-5, even calling it
dirty words in an article a few years back. Now he gets to support his
point by swapping his Ferrari 599 with Cameraman and Editor Neil Carey's NA
Mazda MX-5. Was Chris wrong a few years ago?
The 600 HP APR Stage 3 Audi TTRS - /TUNED
Alabama is the last place you'd expect to find one of the world's largest
tuner companies for German cars, but here, at this facility, APR provides
hardware and software to thousands of Audi and VW customers every month.
Matt helps them with some development testing by providing opinions on
their new Stage 3 package for the Audi TTRS, producing 560 horsepower at the wheels in
a car based on the VW Golf!
The 2012 Porsche Boxster S - /CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
Porsche's new 981 Boxster is an all-new design. Bigger, but lighter than
before. We went to the launch event in the South of France to see how good
it was. And whether a man can now buy the girl's Porsche.
1966 Cobra Dream Machine - /BIG MUSCLE
It's a 1966 Shelby Cobra replica that was built by a Father and his two
sons more than 10 years ago. It's faded fiberglass shell is chipped and
spider-webbed. The stainless trim is pitted and tarnished and the wheels
are coated in a thick layer of brake dust. The carpet is also coming up and
every now and then it blows flames from its side-pipes due to it running a
little rich. Some may think these are problems. Me personally - I think
it's one of the coolest cars I've ever driven. This episode of "Big Muscle"
is about the drive, those project cars that we work on, and the
exhilaration we get when we wring them out for the first time on the open
