2014 Audi RS7: Top Speed Bahnstorming in Germany! - Ignition Ep. 80

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the new Audi RS7 through over 500 miles of German roads, including top-speed blasts on the unrestricted Autobahn. With 560 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque from its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8, the RS7 eclipses even the R8's 5.2-liter V-10 in power delivery. We find out just how monstrous the resulting acceleration is -- as well as the top speed -- though the green countryside of southern Germany. Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend

2014 BMW 435i: Is 4 the New 3? - Ignition Ep. 79
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago goes to Portugal to test the new BMW 435i. The replacement for the 3 Series coupe, the 4 Series is wider and much lower than the sedan - in fact, it has the lowest center of gravity of any BMW currently on sale. BMW claims it's substantiated the controversial name change by differentiating the 4's styling and driving dynamics from the 3. We find out if that's the case, and more, with a drive through the beautiful seaside roads in Portugal and a lapping session at the iconic former F1 circuit, Estoril.

2014 Audi RS7 vs 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo! - Head 2 Head Ep. 49
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman looks at a type of car that Germany does better than anyone else: the Super Sedan. The Porsche Panamera turbo has long been one of Motor Trend's favorites. Massive, ferocious, surprisingly nimble, and if your checkbook's got the overhead, totally luxurious. But don't discount Audi. Ever since the S8 showed up, Audi has shocked the car world by making such a big car so dang fast. The only thing that could even compete was the Panamera turbo. The RS7 comes with an even more powerful version of the familiar 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 -- 560 horsepower to be exact. For 2014, Porsche's seemingly underrated 4.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 is up 20 hp to a more-than-modest 520 hp. Faced with tough choices after the two hit the test track and a canyon road, Jonny enlists the help of resident Motor Trend Hot Shoe Randy Pobst to figure out which super sedan is best. Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

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 horsepower. What 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! Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you don't miss any of the action! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsAegdhiYLEoaFGuJFVrqFQ?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag & https://www.facebook.com/head2headshow Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend & https://twitter.com/head2headshow Google+ - https://plus.google.com/+motortrend/posts Instagram - head2headshow Website - http://www.motortrend.com
