2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer
and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the
2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two
mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092
pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing
Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to
the Dyno gurus at K&N
engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze
you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly
that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a
super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is
how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much
the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2
Head is much closer than most. Have a watch!
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

BMW 1 Series M Coupe review - Auto Express
Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1
Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked
version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds,
while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph.
Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M
Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these
days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and
Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to
one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads?
Auto Express took the wheel to find out.
BMW 1 Series M Coupe vs BMW M3
To the M badge faithful, the BMW 1 Series M Coupe signals a return to form.
But is it? Benchmarking the 1M against an M3 would seem the perfect way to

The Porsche 918 Spyder Tested - CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
The plug-in hybrid, mid-engine hypercar: The Porsche 918 Spyder.
Tested by /DRIVE's Chris Harris at the Valencia circuit in the winter of
2013. The Porsche 918 Spyder has come a long way since when we first saw
it at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2010. Competing against the Ferrari
LaFerrari and McLaren P1, it is the cheapest of the trio of new hypercars
at a base price of $845,000.
The engine weights 140 kg according to Porsche and it delivers 608 horsepower (453 kW) at
8,500 rpm and 528 N·m (389 lbf·ft) of maximum torque. This is
supplemented by two electric motors delivering an additional 279 hp (208
kW) - One 154 hp electric motor drives the rear wheels in parallel with the
engine and also serves as the main generator.
Nissan GT-R by autocar.co.uk
Chris pits the new GT-R against the best 911, and his M3. The result? 3
fast cars. For more Nissan news and reviews visit

It has more torque than the space shuttle and BMW claims it will do over
40mpg. BMW also says it won't be selling the car in the UK or the US, the
places that DRIVE is most commonly viewed. But when something has 3 turbos, you've got to go drive it at 155mph: no?
