Drifting the 700HP M6 and Shooting AK-103s: Latvia Part 2 of 2 - /LIVE AND LET DRIVE
In order to lift his spirits from last week's depressing visit to the KGB Block in Riga, Alex goes to an underground gun range and fires a few WWII pistols and a newer iteration of the Kalashnikov, the AK-103. After that we wind up at Latvia's Track 333 to find out more about the 700HP G-POWER M6 loaner we've been driving, and drift it with Austria's Formula 3 Champion, Harald Schlegelmilch.
700HP in the Baltic Lands: Latvia Part 1 of 2 - /LIVE AND LET DRIVE
Since Alex only wants to drive in places American tourists NEVER go, we
sent him to Riga, Latvia to meet up with our old friend Oto Godfrey. In
Part 1 of our journey to the Baltic Lands, Alex has a look inside and
outside the capitol city, where we find houses made of wood, one of the
fastest cars in the country, and a KGB Headquarters.
Next week on Part 2 of Latvia, we take the car to the track to drift with
an F3 driver, visit a DMV from the far future, and fire AK-103 assault
rifles at paper assailants.

New McLaren P1 - opening the door! (exclusive video)
New McLaren P1, in action(on stand) with opening door. World premier.
Paris.27-28.09.12. Power to weight ratio will be more than 600PS per tonne.
And 1 000 000 Euros price
The McLaren P1 follows in the footsteps of the classic McLaren F1 as the
'ultimate car' offering. The name ties in with Grand Prix racing. P1 means
first place -- and McLaren has 180 GP victories in its 46 year Formula One
history -- or position one on the grid (McLaren has scored 153 pole
positions). There is also heritage in that name: the McLaren F1 was
initially known as Project 1, or P1
The McLaren F1 was lauded as the greatest supercar of its era when it was
first shown 20 years ago. At the time, it was the world's most
technologically advanced and fastest supercar.
The McLaren P1 leverages five decades of McLaren's motorsport skills. It
was designed from the outset to prioritise aerodynamic performance and
spent many hours in a wind tunnel and using CFD (computational fluid
dynamics) aerodynamic modelling -- just like a Formula One car.
The new McLaren P1 has much higher levels of downforce than any current
road car -- 600kg is achieved well below maximum speed. That is
approximately five times as much downforce as a McLaren 12C. Its margin
over most other high performance supercars is even greater. The McLaren
P1's downforce is similar to current sports racing cars, including the 12C
'Of course, the McLaren P1 will have an immensely powerful engine, superb
brakes and state of the art suspension controls,' says Programme Director
Paul Mackenzie. Power to weight ratio will be more than 600PS per tonne.
'But a major reason for its extraordinary performance is its high level of
downforce and its all round aerodynamic excellence. They do not just
improve stability, handling, roadholding and braking at high speed. They
also improve agility and driver confidence at much lower speeds. Our goal
was to get great levels of downforce at lower speeds, and we have achieved
that. It is a major Boost to driving
enjoyment, and to a driver's feeling of being in total control.
This goal -- racing car-like track performance from a road car -- was one
of the primary targets for McLaren P1. 'It reflects the fact that many
buyers of today's fastest supercars do use them increasingly on the race
track, at special owner events,' says Mackenzie. 'We wanted a car that
would feel like a proper racing car. And then could be driven home in great
comfort and refinement. In other words, a real McLaren but with an even
broader breadth of ability.'
The McLaren P1 also has a DRS (drag reduction system) function, like a
Grand Prix car, to reduce downforce and increase straight line speed. But
while a Formula 1 car has a moveable flap in the rear wing, the McLaren
P1's rear wing's pitch is adjusted.
In addition to the adjustable 'active' rear wing, the McLaren P1's
aerodynamic performance is optimised using two flaps mounted under the body
ahead of the front wheels. These are also actively controlled, and change
angle automatically to optimise performance, Boosting downforce and aero efficiency,
increasing both speed and driver confidence. The flaps operate through a
range of 0-60 degrees.
The rear wing and front flaps work together to Boost handling, braking and straight line
performance. The active aerodynamics ensures totally consistent handling
and driving behavior. The rear wing can also act as an airbrake when
All the body panels are carbon fibre to reduce weight. This carries on a
McLaren innovation: it was the first company to offer a full carbon body
Grand Prix car (in 1981) and the first to offer a full carbon body road car
There are also very few body panels. The McLaren P1 has large clamshell
single-moulded front and rear panels, which are attached to the central
carbon MonoCage, and that's it, apart from two small access flaps in the
rear, a front bonnet and the two doors. This reduces weight and the number
of shutlines, creating a cleaner appearance..
The large carbon panels are also multi-functional, with integrated scoops
and ducts to Boost aero performance
and cooling. The panels are extraordinarily thin and light whilst being
very strong. Lightness, as with all McLaren road cars, was a priority for
the McLaren P1. If one component can do the work of two, or more, it
replaces the need for separate components. 'This approach is more weight
efficient, but it does require more complex structures, with fewer parts
but more design time,' notes Chief Design Engineer Parry-Williams.
Best GTR launch control reaction ever
Courage is strong in this beautiful GTR Pilot! She took the directions
given to her and just rolled with it!
I love the part where the fear takes over body control, which makes it hard
for her to think straight to let off the gas to make it stop. Hahahahaha
This is by far the best GTR Reaction I have ever seen with for GTR Launch
2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
