Champion driver Simon Pagenaud talks about racing Indy Car and American LeMans. We also hear about his prized possession, a 1968 Mustang Fastback, which he drives around France. Then Matt goes outside to check out the rare and luxurious 2015 BMW Alpina B6.
Bavsound’s co-founders talk about their plug and play speaker upgrades for BMWs and we discuss Frankenstein and makeshift car audio installs. We also chat about friends who are only interesting enough to talk to on commutes.
Matt checks out the BMW i8 and i3, Jaguar F Type Coupe, Jaguar CX17 concept car, Range Rover Autobiography Black, Audi RS7, Audi A3 series, Ford Edge concept, Porsche Macan, Nissan GTR, Mercedes Benz Gran Turismo concept and the new Lexus IS line all at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.
Alexander Weaver of Auctions America joins us in studio to talk about their upcoming auction in Burbank, August 1st – 3rd. And he brought us two cars from the auction — a 1958 Dual-Ghia convertible and a 1974 BMW 2002 tii Touring Alpina.
This weeks featured car is Martin Schmitt’s 1972 BMW 2002tii. This is excellent example of a super clean and original 2002tii… well except for a few bits and pieces, which we did give him some flack for, but all in the good spirits of CarCast!
Adam Carolla and Sandy Ganz talk with Nik Saran of VF Engineering. Nik is a premier supplier of Supercharger and related upgrades. Nik tells us about his background, about the cool cars that he has supercharged and a bit about VF Engineering. Nik brings us 3 very nice examples of VF Engineering work, an Audi R8, his own Air Force styled BMW M3 and finally a Spyker C8. All Supercharged of course. Enjoy the Show!
Adam Carolla and Sandy Ganz talk with Steve Dinan. Dinan is the premier performance supplier of upgrades for your BMW (and Mini for that matter). We take a look at his Dinan modified M3 that puts down 527hp, without a blower! We take some calls and preach the fuel economy gospel and help a quench the thirst of an over carb’ed engine. Then the Aceman and Ganz take it on the road for a call to the brass at Ford, specifically John Felice General Manager, Ford Lincoln Mercury Marketing. And that’s it for this week on CarCast.
