SEMA Drag Race: Hellcat vs Blasphemi vs Jeep FC vs Sonic! - 2014 SEMA Week Ep. 5
We've reached the final day of 2014 SEMA Week brought to you by 76, and only we would dare to bring this ridiculous mix of vehicles together for a grudge race on an unprepped airport runway. Fred Williams, Jessi Lang, Mike Sabounchi and Mike Finnegan begged and bribed SEMA Show exhibitors to loan them vehicles for a ¼ mile drag race and, though Finnegan and Sabounchi failed, the group still managed to acquire a Jeep riding on tank treads, a fresh-off-the-floor 2015 Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the infamous Hemi-powered ’55 Chevy Bel Air from Roadkill, and a turbocharged 2013 Chevy Sonic to do battle. The racers are as different as the cars. Finnegan lives in the world of hot rods, Lang regularly pilots the best the OEM carmakers have to offer, Williams spends all of his time in the dirt, and Sabounchi hops up every compact car on the planet. Who will come out on top? Watch and find out! Catch the full week of 2014 SEMA programming December 1st through December 5th with a new video premiering each day!

1993 Nissan 240SX Part 4: The 240SS Is Born! (With the Help of an LS3) - Ignition Ep. 120
It’s happening! On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago and Mark Lenardon finally do what they’ve been talking about for so long: Install a Chevy E-Rod LS3 and T56 Super Magnum into our 240SX. Our CARB legal setup (that’s right, it’s street legal) makes 430 horsepower and 424 lb.-ft. of torque. What’s even better is that it doesn’t change the weight balance of the car. This episode starts with the install of the driveline, continues with a drive on the road and a visit to the test track so we can see the improvements, and ends with a shakedown run by Randy Pobst at Streets of Willow race track. How will the car perform? Watch and find out! Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsAegdhiYLEoaFGuJFVrqFQ?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & https://www.facebook.com/mt.ignition Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/mt_ignition Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Instagram - @mt_ignition Website - http://www.motortrend.com

Fisker Karma: An Owner's Review
I received my Karma in December 2011, and after putting 2200 miles on the car I decided to do this very complete and comprehensive review of the car. I apologize for the length of this review, but this is actually the short version. I had a lot to talk about, and this was the shortest I could edit it down while retaining most of the important stuff.

2012 Fisker Karma - 3 Top Gear Review by 11 year old Josh Asarnow - Jay Leno
11 Year Old Josh Asarnow introduces the brand new 2012 Fisker Karma while on vacation in West Palm Beach, FL. Jay Leno, you are a huge inspiration! I would love the opportunity to interview you in your Car Garage. I bet we would have fun too! Check out Josh, his 3TopGear You Tube Channel and his reviews: http://www.youtube.com/3topgear Electric Luxury And Performance. Plug In Or Fill Up. Finally, sustainable design without compromise. Introducing the Fisker Karma, the first true electric luxury vehicle with extended range and the freedom to plug in or fill up. With the ability to toggle between the all-electric Stealth Mode or fuel assisted Sport Mode with the simple shift of the paddle, the Karma delivers high impact performance while maintaining a low impact on the environment. The Fisker Karma -- a bold expression of un-compromised responsible luxury Design The elegant lines of windswept sand dunes and the muscular grace of a cheetah inspired the design of the Fisker Karma. The design team's inspiration were also led by the understanding of the principles of order, and the harmony of opposing structures, textures and elements. Interior Materials The components that form the Karma's interior are as unique as they are essential to continuing Fisker's sustainable and accountable design philosophy. Every Karma produced reflects Fisker's dedication to the use of reclaimed, recycled and reusable materials: Wood trim is sourced from reclaimed lumber, seating foam is fashioned from soy-based bio fiber and the carpet backing is created from recycled post-consumer materials. The Karma EcoStandard features an interior environment that's tinted a rich shade of black (Black Onyx Monotone) and emulates pure grain leather. The EcoSport's leather comes from the world's first closed-loop leather manufacturing plant. Not only is the leather sourced from farms that abide by the Five Freedoms of Humane Animal Treatment, approximately 85% of the entire hide is used (more than double the amount used by traditional automakers). The Karma EcoChic is the most advanced sustainable trim package available. It features 100% post-industry virgin textile Premium EcoSuede to surround occupants in a lush and sustainable driving environment. 22" Wheels The Fisker Karma is the first production vehicle to feature 22" Circuit Blade wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires as standard equipment. The wheels are powder-coated to provide an enduring finish and limit harmful VOC emissions in the manufacturing process. The Karma also comes standard with a race-inspired braking system -- featuring large rotors and Brembo™ Monobloc calipers that incorporates regenerative braking in order to capture kinetic energy during deceleration. Command Center A simple touch screen interface was designed to manage the premium audio, navigation, iPod™, Bluetooth™ and climate control systems. To reflect Fisker's signature design detail, a chrome bezel surrounds the flat screen glass surface -- perfectly complementing the jewel-like quality of the instrument gauge cluster. Solar Roof Featuring the largest solar glass roof ever designed for a production vehicle, the Fisker Karma harnesses energy from the sun to extend the driving range for up to an additional 200 miles/322 km annually. Custom designed to be a wonder of both art and engineering, the roof visually conveys the Karma's advanced technology and environmental purpose. Reclaimed Wood The Karma's uniquely refined interior wood trim is 100% sustainably sourced from Fallen, Sunken and Rescued Wood™ to ensure that no live growth is ever used. Fallen Wood™ comes from fallen trees in the western United States. Sunken Wood™ has a white oak finish with a beautiful patina, created naturally after resting at the bottom of Lake Michigan for over 300 years. Rescued Wood™ is recovered from trees from wildfires in California. Lighting Every Karma comes standard with Bi-Xenon headlamps and low energy LED lamps throughout the vehicle. The Karma also uses low-voltage LED exterior lighting, including the car's reverse, rear fog and side marker lights to conserve power wherever possible.
