Cars That Will Get You Beat-Up In Texas -- /ROAD TESTAMENT
All cars aren't for everybody. No one knows that better than Texans,
who just won't accept the presence of certain cars on their roads.
Show up in one of these cars, and expect to get punched in the face.
At the least. With: Matt Farah.
Turner Motorsport's 535 hp Frozen Gray BMW M3 and Championship-Winning M3 Race Car - /TUNED
In our season 2 finale, Tuned goes to Monticello Motor Club to visit the
Turner Motorsport race team, who have brought us two cars: Their 535-horsepower, all-motor
Frozen M3 street project car, and the 2011 Continental Tire Series
Championship-winning E92 M3 Race Car driven by Bill Auberlin and Paul Dalla
Lana. We learn the importance of having your street car tuned by a company
that goes out and wins races every weekend, and that on the track, horsepower is far from
Ten Cars That Want To Kill You -- /ROAD TESTAMENT
Some of the most exciting cars in history are exciting because they appear
to want bodily harm done to novice drivers. What are the most unforgiving
cars on the road for drivers without the right skills? With Matt Farah.
2011 Corvette Grand Sport vs. Matt's Modified C5 Corvette
The Smoking Tire hits the Malibu Canyons with two torch red Corvettes: a
2011 Grand Sport, and Matt's 1998 C5. Matt set out to turn his Corvette
into a better drivers car, and we find out if GM's improvements to the
Corvette in the last 12 years match Matt's modifications to his own car.
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.
Amazing Car Collection at AE Performance
Though we originally respected their privacy when they asked not to say who
owned the cars, as we filmed this over a year ago, it makes no sense now
not to say the cars all belonged to Paul Walker and Roger Rodas, two good
friends of The Smoking Tire who tragically lost their lives on 11/30/13,
and the world is officially a worse off place without them. Paul and Roger
will be dearly missed by everyone who ever got to see their smiles,
exchange words, or spend time with them at the track. RIP Roger and Paul.

microphone battery was dying and we did not bring headphones to monitor it.
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.
