Thanks to AutoTempest.com for sponsoring this series!
On today's episode of Car Trek, AutoTempest challenged us to find three of the world's cheapest, most depreciated supercars and meet up in Las Vegas for a series of challenges. Freddy chose a derelict Maserati Coupe GT "Trofeo Tribute" car, Ed brought an ex-cartel Aston Martin V12 Vanquish, and Tyler showed up in a Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG that was clearly NOT a supercar. But then we found out what was wrong with them...

You guys did it again! Can not wait to see how this turns out haha!!! These are they cars I live for!
You know something is good when the god himself likes it
Hell Yeah ChrisFix!!! When is your next video coming out?
*grammatical error Uncle Chris! Just sayin'.
Hoovie: German reliability is a myth
Also Hoovie: Buys the cheapest and most depreciated cars in the USA
And then he sells his glorified Z3 because it's too reliable.
And for those who don't know, a regular Z3 roadster or clownshoe is quite a bit cheaper to own than an M.
Porsche has entered the chat
still better than américan and japanese car lol , and porshe guarantee work even if you race on a track tell me an other constructor who has the balls to do that ?
German build quality is not a myth.
@Ghost Shadow it’s not a myth it’s just parts are expensive especially in places like the us
The Mercedes Red Pig did not "do terrible." It won its class and finished 2nd overall 24 Hours of Spa in 1971. And this was on the brutal 21 turn 8.76 mile Spa layout used from 1939-1978.
Amazing. When top gear lost its way and fired it's original hosts, it failed to find a replacement crew with a good internal dynamic... Now you guys killed it! Not quite OG Top Gear, but a hell of a lot better than new top gear. I love it! Will watch every episode you guys release!
Grand Tour IS the replacement.... Though that has sadly slowed down with Clarkson's farm and Hammond and May having other new projects as well...
I'm sorry, but even though these guys aren't bad, it is nowhere near the level of Jeremy, James and Richard, no car show comes even close to that trio.
car throttle also capture a similar dynamic
the spinoff top gear introduction to the cars did feel cheap though when compared to the possibility of these three doing something more creative.
I really like that you put the cars up on a lift for us and actually went through what was wrong with the cars. You just don't see that too often.
They say it’s possible to have more fun than taking road trips in terrible examples of depreciated supercars but I am not so sure.
just don't believe everything you see on the internet!
I'm so happy this has been released.
i saw royalty exotics plate on the back of a lamborgini
If this was TG or the Grand Tour, Hammond would be in that Maserati, he also probably would've done the same thing Tavarish did with the decals, Clarkson would be in the Merc, he prefers AMG Mercs and he'd probably do the same wrap thing with similar results and May would be in the Aston Martin, because it's essentially the most British out of the three cars and looks the best
No way! Clarkson would be in the Aston, as it is the fastest looking of the bunch and captain slow would drive the Merc as it is dull and boring, but reliable and the best choice all other feelings aside.
@Cleens clarkson would be in the merc cuz "MOAR POWAAH!"
@Chief Denis Hed be in the Aston Martin cause it’s an Aston Martin...have you NOT seen all the times he’s driven an Aston Martin in the Grand Tour and Top Gear combined?! Although the Mercedes is somewhat his type, it’s more dull and less showy as James May is.
And the jokes would be funny
Clarkson is an insufferable British car snob, so he'd be in the Aston. It's British and that's all that matters. May would be in the Merc, as it's comfortable, and luxurious. And Hammond likes cheap and cheerful wrecks, so he might have the Maserati.
In fairness, May once had an old Rolls and Clarkson had a Grosser Mercedes 600, but that was a rare exception. Usually, if there's one British car, Clarkson will take it.
I just want to say that I really enjoyed this series and the one before it. All three of Freddy, Ed, and Hoovie are very entertaining, and I can't wait for CarTrek3! Someone should hire all three of you to do the US version of Top Gear. I think it would be a big hit! Incidentally, I liked Hoovie's car the best in this installment.
It is like watching a poor man's Top Gear
they copy so much of it
@Gibby even with the music choices lol
@Gibby that's the point, they even said in the first episode. They're not like, professional filmmakers, they are youtubers literally making poor man's top gear.
And i like it!🎉
Top Gear is also a poor man’s Top Gear. 😂
Some say he tastes motor oil, some say he owns a yacht. All we know is he’s called the Car Wizard!
When CarTrek becomes actually as good as (if not better than )the show it was inspiered from. Respect to the whole team!!!
This show is an instant classic. I hope they make a lot more.
"You don't look tired. Did someone else push that for you?"
Damn, Ed. You burned him like a Hoovie Ferrari. Well deserved, though.
Not sure which roast was better, his or yours lol
Believe it or not out of these 3 cars the rarest it the Mercedes, as according to Wikipedia, they made 196 CL-65 AMGs, 1492 first generation Aston Martin Vanquishes, and 13423 Maserati Coupés/Spyders (I couldn’t find a separate number for the Coupé)
Waw I didn't expect that!
lol it's still boring and in all the shots, all you see is Maserati, Aston, and a red background car.
They did not make very many 6-speed stick Coupés/Spyders - 1,078 of them, to be exact. This particular model, BTW, is supposed to be the Trofeo model... but, the interior seems to suggest otherwise. Not sure what that's about. If it really is a Trofeo car, though, it'd be of an even lower production - maybe around a few dozen(?)
@ICan'tGiveCredit its a trofeo tribute. So the regular model with the previous owner pulling out as much interior as he could without a socket set.
Actually, they made a 777 cl65 c215
That Vanquish still looks amazing like it has held up as far as the Looks go, I remember being a kid and seeing Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond driving the Vanquish in video games and Die another day, still beautiful and would love to drive on someday
The car was the only good part of that movie not named Halle Berry
Great content guys. Seeing the transformation from the very beginning of your channels has been quite the journey. Hats off.
This feels like the most genuine recreation of something they would have done on top gear in the good old days. This is awesome!
Edd = Clarkson
Freddy = May
Tyler = Hammond
The more i watch CarTrek, the more i feel those old Top Gear vibes i always used to love. This is pretty much the next best thing.
YES, THE CL65 AMG IS A SUPERCAR!
it is NOT
Love you guys
If that's a supercar, so is my brothers C63.....It's not.
It definitely isn't!
Watching these 3 together puts a whole new perspective on Tavarish. The most down to earth
The quality of this video was out of this world! It was like seeing a TV series episode. Videos like these on Clip-Share are rare
It's nice to see ed, tyler, and tavarish together🙏
This is very much like a better version of the good old Top gear. Excellent production. You guys are just great together.
as a mechanic - i would LOVE to see a project from Tavarish and Wizard together! I think those two could be good friends :D
These 3 are a match made in heaven and the wizard is just a cherry on top.
That would be the strawberry on top!
Good to see you guys at it again. Really enjoyed season 1.
Not the car show we asked for .... but the car show we needed , thank you guys , this gives me some OG Top Gear vibes and for that I am grateful appreciated
You guys are great together. Keep the collabs coming!
easily my favorite video of the year 2020, among all the car videos... funny, informative, exciting, intriguing... great job to all three hosts.
Glad I found these videos they're brilliant!! Currently working my way through the series now. Just finished series 1 now onto 2. Great work and free 👍🏻
The fact that AutoTempest sponsor a proper production video like this to make it happen makes me 10000 times more keen to use their services then just 30 seconds of an influencer talking at the start of any old video. Well done for supporting them!
10000 times the benefit for only 1000 times the cost! 😂 Seriously though, glad you like it!
@AutoTempest.com Thank you AutoTempest for giving us the Top Gear we deserve . If your website works for Europe ill use it.
@AutoTempest.com You guys rock, and I take this series as a sign that you really are true car guys.
@Simeon Dunev hopefully someday, but not yet unfortunately!
@Izzy PlusPlusPlus Thanks, I certainly am!
The video editing is done so well on the video. It's quite professional like TV standards professional. Also my favourite car out of the bunch would be the Aston Martin Vanquish due its sheer appearance.
Yeah it's almost as if they had a 299 episode 29 season template that started in 2002 as a guide.
this show is awesome PLEASE keep the 3 of you guys and keep making more i love it
I always laugh when I watch these guys. One of the most fun things to watch during the pandemic
You guys need a Netflix deal this was shot beautifully and your presentation skills are all off the charts
I've been savoring this series for as long as I could stand...LOVE THESE SERIES
In this episode, Ed exploits technicalities, Tavarish goes full on meme, and Hoovie, for once, does things properly......
This show is so amazing. it really is an alternative top gear just with our favorite youtubers. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
I love the line "If Ferrari had made a line of cars for Costco this would be it" Hahaha
Wizard talking to Ed is him genuinely enjoying finally interacting with an adult 😂
The Production quality is on par with TV Car magazines. Amazing job guys, keep em coming!!
I'm new to the car trek series and now im binge watching them and it seems like Freddy always gets the biggest beater and it always cracks me up his interior is missing a panel or 2, maybe a headliner, something is either not working on the cluster or just not even in the dashboard, he is by far the Richard Hammond of the series.
Wizard: "It's nice to talk to someone who can do their own work."
Freddy: "Oh, does Tyler not do that?
Wizard: *pause, followed by the coldest "No." possible*
I was expecting a “well how do you think I do so well as a mechanic”
I have an idea for another car trek season! Perhaps find 25 year old jdm cars and do a road trip with those! Also binge watching this season tonight and im pumped!
I love the way Ed talks. He is genuinely in love with cars. The way he describes them without sounding forced or pretentious you can tell he is all in.
That Vanquish still looks so freaking good. What a car.
This is so good! Car Trek SZN 1 is great and SZN 2 is even better. You guys are getting good at this. Feels as if I'm watching the original Top Gear. Cheers!
Love watching these guys ! Better than a Top Gear America by far ! 👍👍
What could possible go wrong with cars likes these?
[Narrator]: A lot would go wrong.
What could possibly go wrong?
[Narrator]: As it turns out quite a lot! Ed was pulled over not long after. He is now serving 25 years in federal prison after 5 kilos of Columbia’s finest was found behind his speakers.
What could possibly go wrong is practically Clarkson's catchphrase ffs
what could possibly go wrong
Freddies masserati: set's itself on fire
You bought a British car, what do you expect?
Thank you for making these,completely didnt expect a second one! I use auto tempest. Only suggestion is for Ed, could you add Copart listings to auto tempest for us to rebuild?
They are like the discount version of Grand tour but they are affordable to watch. Love u guys ❤
These guys should take all the top gear comments as a badge of honor because they really could make it they are good at this
Nice vid, I enjoyed it very much. The Aston was the best of the three IMO my favorite and the only one I would consider. Luckily I could do the work myself so repair costs would go down a lot once you leave out labor costs. 29K IMO is a deal for Aston and it is the best looking car out of the three and probably the one that would attract the most attention. I would like to see a long term review of all three it's nice to see how long and how much these super cars cost in the long run. I figure these cars are gone after the video is over. I never buy used luxury/exotics always buy them used and so far I have had great luck with little to no big repairs. I hsve to admit this is the first vid from Tavarish I have seen and I subscribed did watch these at the track in the other vid after. It looked like fun.
Actually the closest anyone could get to the great three from the original Top Gear. It really does feel like a special. Tavarish is May, Vin is Clarkson, and Hoovie is definitely Hammond.
Love that everyone is enjoying the first episode so much! Everyone put in so much work and it is awesome getting to share it.
The only one I'm missing in this series is you man! You should be included somehow... BTW, I love the wrench everyday channel! 🔧
You make it happen a lot of the time Jared! Keep it up man!
Now, this season is a bit more relatable. Awesome job guys!!!
Turned this on just hoping to see the cars a bit and then turn it off, but ended up watching the whole thing. These guys are the first ones that I've seen since Top Gear to actually have a good dynamic and be entertaining and not just annoying. The production is kind of similar, and it's nice to see a good "challenge" episode. It was just missing an intern wearing a lab coat and holding a cue card as a "producer" and it would've had the whole package!
Top gear is the greatest car show of all time. I appreciate that you guys utilized the elements from TG. Good stuff 👍👍👍
I love how Wizard went from being super shy in front of the camera to being a part of videos like this.
Thanks for making Top Gear, 10x better than what they call Top Gear now. Excellent Stuff!
I still miss The Grand Tour but Tavarish, Ed, and Hoover are getting to the same level if they will continue working together.
Car Trek 1 was good some things I liked and some don't. this episode was very good can't wait for the next one.
Yes! So much better than TG America already.
From the UK got to agree
Eh rut wasn’t bad
Man it is good to see season 2 of Top G... I mean Grand... err whatever!
Glad you guys are back, giving us some seriously great content!
A true successor to Top Gear and TGT, May, Clarkson n Hammond would be proud, y'all should start your own channel dedicated to CarTrek
This is soooooo much better than top gear/Grand tour! Weeeeezard is a legend, thank you guys for making this lockdown more fun!
So glad this is here. Needs to be a TV series for sure.
Yes they do a pretty good version of Jeremy, Richard and Captain Slow. So much better than any alternatives that have been found in the UK.
We have waited for this, this is the best thing 2020 has to offer this year, thanks guys, Like If you want a car trek series 3👍🏼
It's happening. Christmas Special!
VINwiki thanks 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
The Aston Martin Vanquish is gorgeous. If the transmission really is that bad then maybe the manual swap is worth it.
I haven't even watched the vid yet but let me say how happy I am to see another one in this series being released 👌
Hoovey and Vinwiki are like snobby art critics. Tvarish is an actual artist.
Gettin' the good ol' Top Gear vibe from the time when Jezza, Hamster and Captain Slow were running the show.
Good content :)
I love these guys! Very entertaining series!
I wasnt sure that there would be a trio that could match Clarkson, May and Hammond. You three have proved otherwise.
Keep it up! Can’t wait for more!
It's like the dollar store made a car show... Have fun guys and we'll have fun in the process 😉
I worked at a Mercedes dealership around the year 2000. I was a few years out of high school at the time. I remember getting to drive a BRABUS S-class that had a sticker price of $165k. At the time, that would have bought a nice, new starter home in the area. The car was beautiful but it really helped me understand the excesses of wealth.
I think CarTrek and CarThrottle have the OG top gear feel. It's so refreshing to see this poor man's Top Gear!
This is spot on old Top Gear. Loving it! Give us more!
I love these CarTreks....the 3 of you are hilarious
It was so exciting to see the Car Wizard. I'm glad they were able to include him in this season of Car Trek.
This is like watching good old UK Top Gear. I want more, make this a regular show.
The Aston would make a beautiful project... with that manual box, or a 6 speed ZF auto if it could be made to fit.
You guys nailed the brit Top Gear formula, right down to the personality caricatures and sketch comedy.
Series 1 was fun, series 2 already better! Loving it.. and wizard cameo just ups the game!
This was really cool seeing all of you together.
Just as cool was seeing the Wizard in a Hawaiian shirt.
The Car Wizard is now officially part of the CarTrek lore
Please guys, make this happen.
Though, add Pink too
@Dan if you seen the credits, Pink is apart of the production team.
Now we just need a stig
Pleased you have made another season of CarTrek. Thank you
Very entertaining! Great work and great cars guys!!!
My 3 favorite car guys !, they should have their own TV show.
If Ferrari had to make a line of cars for Costco, this would be it.......the funniest and most accurate thing I've heard in weeks.
This needs to be the new top gear period. They are perfect for it
As a colombian I laughed so hard when Ed presented the Aston Martin 🤣🤣
me too! I can't believe that Aston was in Colombia
People have been sending me pics of it being driven around there. So cool.
I was waiting for the Wizard to drop a belly pan and find a surprise inside!
Is that kilo aftermarket
Tyler waking around that house saying "wow" is me walking thru other people's homes seeing what money buys with when you don't have a car addiction
As a Brit with an Italian car, I'm not sure who to back. Actually, remembering how much time I've spent under my Italian car, yes I am. Aston all the way.
Turns out the Car Wizard was actually wrong this time. The valve cover gaskets were not bad on the CL65. Is was a tiny little o-ring down in the valley of the V12, and to get to it, you have to pull the motor. With that knowledge, I don't think Tyler would have won this challenge so easily. I think the Wizard was playing favorites again lol. 😂
I watched your 1st series a while back, and I did like that. Just started this one right now, and I'm looking forward to enjoy the whole tour of this series. FYI I'm a long time huge fan of Top Gear and Grand tourer shows, but to me that doesn't make me feel any difference to this show, if anything it's all your presentation and all the other works for the making of this show matters. Forgetting the findings of everything's unique side, compare one with another is stupid people's job. So don't bother, carry on and be the best of yourself.
The grooves on the Aston’s rotors increase surface area. That’s a brake enhancement.
This is Awesome! Keep them coming! You guys are taking over the niche Grand Tour audience! I still don’t get how an amazon show could not produce a single episode, while a few guys from Clip-Share have been able to film two specials!
Thank you guys for keeping us entertained!
When is the Car Trek merch coming? Need some Christmas gifts.
Seriously. At this stage, Clip-Share content is starting to kill large production houses with amazing material and at a fraction of the cost.
*Im loving this great value top gear series*
Whoever put this together deserves an Emmy. No question.
The background music doesn't need to be constant
@Francis ok. No Emmy for you!
It just a copy of the british Top Gear. Same format, similar characters with the same challenges.
My dream car has been appreciating in value for over 20 years... Also, my old Mercedes, when I had it, was a fantastically reliable car. It was also, however, nowhere near as hard on its driveline and it wasn't tinkered on by AMG, so there was substantially less to go wrong. As long as you aren't getting one of the exotic, class topping trims, then you're probably going to get a decently reliable car. Standard shocks and reasonable engines tend to last.
