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!
