/TUNED Season 4 Highlights and Wrap Up
Matt revisits the fourth season of /TUNED, answering common questions from
commenters and going behind the scenes for some of our favorite modified
TUNED Season 1 Finale - /TUNED
As the first season of tuned comes to an end, we re-visit all the cars
we've tested so far, provide some behind the scenes information, and answer
The 900 HP Heffner Twin Turbo Lamborghini LP-560 -- /TUNED
/Tuned goes to Sarasota to visit Heffner Performance, the first company to
ever build a twin-turbo kit for the
Lamborghini Gallardo. In a barely marked, unassuming suburban shop, Jason
Heffner turns out some of the tuning world's craziest creations. His
twin-turbo Lamborghini LP-560 seems so
right, however, that we feel it should be standard equipment from the
Speed, The Desert, and Crushed Dreams -- /TUNED
Matt and Zack take the 2014 Mini Cooper Works GP to the Silver State
Classic, an open road challenge in the Nevada desert. It started out as a
good idea, but doesn't exactly go well, as the organizers want us to go
slowly, and when driving a Mini GP, the only thing you can do is go fast as
hell. To anyone this offends, we're sorry (but not really).
Twin-Turbo Subaru Legacy: How JDM Can You Go? -- /TUNED
Dave Brown likes to do things differently. So, rather than build an R-STi
like everyone else, he spent over two years at his shop Fast of Westchester
turning his 1998 Subaru Legacy into a perfect JDM Tuner Car, right down to
the rare Twin-turbo engine. This is how
subtlety should be done.

Can a Nissan Versa beat a Corvette?
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.
710 HP STaSIS Engineering R8 V10 Spyder
The Smoking Tire hits the canyons with one of the fastest Audi's on the
road: Stasis Engineering's Supercharged R8 5.2 FSI. Matt Farah wrings out
the red Spyder on an empty canyon road, proving that no amount of horsepower is ever too much.
Airstrip Attack Runway Tuner Shootout - /TUNED
TUNED attends the Shift S3ctor Airstrip Attack Runway Tuner Shootout at
Trona Airport in the California desert. Here, 80 tuner cars from Europe,
Japan, and America will battle it out in head-to-head half mile drag races
to find out which tuner is truly the acceleration king. Featured tuners
include BBi Autosport, AE Performance, Switzer, HG Motorsports, COBB
Tuning, Cunningham Motorsports, ESS Tuning, VF Engineering, and more.
The Ultra-Light, 505 WHP AVI Racing Corvette GT1 - /TUNED
Tuned heads to Inde Motorsports Park in the Arizona to meet with the guys
from AVI racing who have solved a problem that has plagued track warriors
for decades: If you want to go to the track, why start with a street car?
For less than the price of a new C6 Corvette, AVI's Corvette GT1 has the
racing technology and performance needed to spank some of the world's
quickest GT race cars.
650 HP BBi Autosport Porsche 997 Turbo S - /TUNED
TUNED visits BBi Autosport in Huntington Beach, CA to drive their new
Porsche 997 turbo S. This unbelievable
machine balances big power with low weight and suspension and brake
upgrades to match. TUNED runs a quarter mile on a runway before heading
into the canyons to see if BBi has really built a no-compromises ultimate
street car for the track.
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.
