Sam is not pleased when he discovers that Paul Wallace (Supercars of London) has rented a BMW M3 to drive down to Las Vegas for SEMA 2016.

The Corvette Z06. The quintessential American super car. Supermodel looks and top marks for crowd appeal. Superb handling. A sublime soundtrack that reverberates its quad exhaust so violently that it threatens avalanches and rock-slides when driving near mountains. A 6.2L V8 engine that blasts the beast from 0-60 mph (0-100 kph) in 3.1 second.
Sam hops into a beautiful Corvette Z06 convertible, first to meet Matt Farah of the Smoking Tire, and then to zip down to Palm Springs for some rest. And zip he didn't. Even with all of the Z06's horses, a tolerable 1.5 hour drive became a torturous 4 hour crawl. Thank you L.A. rush hour...
Sam, the high-roller that he is, rolls out of Vegas in style to pay a visit to Lake Mead National Park. He's with Gotham Dream Cars on their Exotic Driving Tour for a spectacular drive that he won't soon forget. Oh, and part of the Exotic Driving Tour is that he gets to drive several exotic cars...

Over the coming weeks, she'll star in several exclusive TrackWorthy videos, and she'll gallop up and down nearly the full length of the Golden State!
Sam describes the Corvette Z06 as “America’s Supercar,” and most enthusiasts will agree. And then there’s Damian Gryzelko’s green satin monster. With his modifications, a car that was already at the upward threshold of controllable power goes mental. Sam has an absolute blast tearing through the California mountain roads, shattering nearby windows with every rev, and shifting through this puppy’s gears. But does this Chevy deserves mention in the same sentence with a Ferrari 488?
More car spotting - this time in a BMW M4, with the help of native LA YouTuber, Effspot. Although the boys explain why car spotting is so tough in L.A. during the week compared to other major cities, they catch glimpses of a few pretty impressive rides, including an Aston Martin DB10 in an alley and a McLaren 570s with a massive rear wing!
Sam feels inadequate and depressed. Not usual sentiments for a YouTube celeb who gets to spend his days driving and filming awesome cars. But that’s what often happens when one passes through Beverly Hills. The neighborhood boasting the densest wealth population in the United States humbles poppers and princes alike.
Sam reviews his go-to car for the next seven weeks, shares his honest reactions to its drive and "useability" while giving us a small taste of LA's magnificent scenery. He also nearly melts in SoCal's scorching mid-September heat. Good thing the top has a "closed" position too.
Running on pure excitement and adrenaline, Sam shows his usual fantastic energy despite departing at 5 A.M. after the first short "snooze" he's managed in seventy-two hours. His destination? Malibu Coffee and Cars -- a sunrise gathering where exotic car-owners proudly exhibit their toys, chat, caffeinate for the day ahead and grab some fresh waffles. Check out the awesome variety that Sam was able to capture whilst working on his tan.
