You can pretty much put serious power into anything, but keeping the look modest enough to disguise all that power is quite a challenge – as is driving head-to-head against a McLaren, Lamborghini, or anything that comes stock from the factory with respectable power figures. The series promises to pit a Honda CRX against a Ferrari California, a Pontiac minivan against a Porsche 911 GT3, and other comparable face-offs.
All of the cars, built or bought, come with their own stories, as do the owners and builders. The teaser trailers promise a pretty engaging show. Perhaps it's not all about throwing spanners or working against an incredulous deadline, either.
