2014 Ferrari F12 Berlinetta vs 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7 vs 2013 Porsche 911 C4S! Head 2 Head Ep 42
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst restage our
annual Best Driver's Car competition with this year's winning Porsche 911
Carrera 4S plus two contenders that missed the initial dance, the all-new
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the explosive, exotic Ferrari F12
Berlinetta. The Ferrari is the most powerful car we've ever taken around
Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with its ferocious 6.3-liter 731 horsepower V-12. The
Corvette comes packing the latest version of GM's venerable small block, a
6.2-liter cam-in-block V-8 that kicks out 460 hp and 465 pound-feet of
torque. The Porsche and its relatively tiny 3.8-liter flat-6 might seem out
gunned, but remember that for the last two years the 911 has beaten back
every BDC challenger we've thrown at it. Does the Corvette have what it
takes to dethrone the 911? Does the wailing Ferrari? Watch and find out!

Cars, drivers and the pit crew - Demolition Derby
Walking down Pit Lane at the Salmon Arm Demolition Derby I learned many
things. There is cement poured into the driver and passenger doors, the
cars are gutted, some even had small boat gas tanks in the back seat along
with radiators being relocated in the cabin.
Luck can't be discounted during the race but once you get past the luck,
it's all about preparation and everyone working together.
Hennessey C7 Corvette Runs 200 MPH on Texas Toll Road
On December 11, 2013, a 700 HP Hennessey C7 became the first 2014 Corvette
Stingray to break the 200 mph barrier by reaching a maximum speed of 200.6
mph. This was achieved on a closed section of the Grand Parkway which
connects I-10 to Hwy. 290 on the west side of Houston, Texas. Officials
from TxDOT, Texas DPS and TransCore were on hand to witness the testing of
the EZ tag toll system. Special thanks to TxDOT Chairman, Ted Houghton.
The Hennessey C7 Corvette was equipped with the company's HPE600 upgrade
with the addition of a 100 HP Nitrous
Express kit. For more information, please visit
