Arctic Circle or Bust in a Mercedes-Benz G65 AMG! - Epic Drives Episode 14
On this episode of Epic Drives, Jonny Lieberman and Justin Bell take the
Twin-turbo V12 G65 AMG on a mischievous
trip through the lands of Sweden as they make their way to AMG's Winter
Driving Academy and the Arctic Circle! Along the way they stumble across a
fashion show in Stockholm, visit the 40 foot tall Gavle Goat and drift an
SLK on a frozen lake. Will the G65 prove to be a capable vessel or will it
leave them buried and stranded in sub-zero temperatures?
Epic Drives appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Motorcycle Crash & Burn on Mulholland
Click this link To watch all 80 crashes captured over the past four years.
Mulholland Highway in Los Angeles has been a mecca for motorcycles & fast
cars for decades. Car and motorcycle clubs are regular visitors every
weekend. Jay Leno can often be found at the famous Rockstore and at a view
point called Lookout talking with fellow motor enthusiasts. Crashes are
common as well as a heavy police presence on most weekends. The Snake is a
two mile section of Mulholland above the Rockstore. Riders usually will
make multiple runs allowing me to move from corner to corner when
assembling rider videos. The speed limit is 45 mph, most riders are not
going much over that so the majority of tickets are crossing the line,
wheelies or equipment violations. Bicycles are up here all the time but
motorcycles and bikes seem to do fine together as long as the cyclists are
willing to stay to the right. Cars passing them are a bigger problem since
there is no shoulder and most turns are blind.
I mainly shoot on the last corner coming up because I can see much of the
road and photogs are expected. The turn gets it's fair share of crashes
but people crash other places also just no one is filming. The top corner I
shoot seem to average one crash every couple weeks in the summer, out of
many hundreds of riders. 911 emergency services are rarely called and
accidents are seldom reported since most riders do not get injured
severely. Google Street View - http://goo.gl/wsMi
2008 R6 vs. 570whp '04 Cobra
The R6 is 100% stock except for a Jardine GP1 slip-on Exhaust. The Cobra has a Whipple Supercharger on it. It was putting down between
about 570whp that night from what I was told. I started late because I
couldn't hear them yelling at me haha.
