Stage Florida and La Ferrari vs McLaren P1 vs Porsche 918 with a dash of Lamborghini Huracán

Chris Hayes published on

Once again fellow automotive journalist and YouTube jockey extraordinaire Carlos Lago (@CarlosLago) joins us in our new studio.  Carlos has been one hell of lucky bastard this year as he comes to us with his thoughts on the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918, the BMW M3/M4 twins as well as his recent trip to drive the Lamborghini Huracán.  

Beyond that absolutely ridiculous list of vehicles we talk about Motor Trend Classic, Nitro Circus, print advertising, 240sx motor swaps and vintage Ferraris.

On top of that we review the base model Ford Focus, Thadius has Cobb upgrade his Fiesta ST to their Stage 3 package and Matt shares his stories from officiating the Wanna Go Fast 1/2 mile event in Chicago.

    I thought the Notchback was called the "5 Liter Heater", no?

    Hey Guys this is Eric Gaudi the sales manager at AMS/ALPHA Performance. Thank you for the discussion about the 1/2 mile. We had a GREAT time and having Matt as the MC for the event was just the icing on the cake. It seems we have a similar sense of humor. Hope we can get you guys in some more ALPHA cars soon!
