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.
Drifting the 700HP M6 and Shooting AK-103s: Latvia Part 2 of 2 - LIVE AND LET DRIVE
In order to lift his spirits from last week's depressing visit to the KGB Block in Riga, Alex goes to an underground gun range and fires a few WWII pistols and a newer iteration of the Kalashnikov, the AK-103. After that we wind up at Latvia's Track 333 to find out more about the 700HP G-POWER M6 loaner we've been driving, and drift it with Austria's Formula 3 Champion, Harald Schlegelmilch.

Our second day in Iceland's objective was to get outside of the city and see some of the fabled natural wonders of Iceland's ring road. Heading due east of Reykjavik towards Geysir we observe horse intelligence, the alleged Icelandic subway system, and a host of the most ridiculous modified off-road trucks we've ever seen.

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 everything.
Hot Wheels Corkscrew Jump World Record - LIVE AND LET DRIVE
Hot Wheels invited Alex to their Top Secret test facility to witness the truth behind the mythology: that HotWheels builds their cars full-sized, puts them through extreme stunts, and upon success, miniaturizes them for kid consumption. In this episode we got to join Team Hot Wheels as they corkscrewed a car through the air in an attempt to break the world record distance.
Check out the official Team Hot Wheels video of the jump here:
