Speed Is The New Black (Velocity) – Premieres 24th May – Renewed
Car renovation show the follows the employees of the Classic Car Studio, as they receive vehicles from their clients that have seen better days and are given the challenge to get them running to a high spec while creating a customised vehicle for the owner.
Like other car renovation shows like Detroit Steel and Road Hauks, it follow garage as they create a plan on what to do with the vehicle and then putting the plan to action. Then along the way they stumble into unforeseen problems due to the cars state of disrepair, which manage to get rectified in time.
At the end of the show the cars get revealed to their owners, and a high speed test drive is given. While it’s not a million miles away from other similar shows of the genre, they manage to fit a weird love letter section which is reminiscent of some that would occur in Sacred Steel Bikes, though they don’t manage to pull it off as well.
As a renovation show it’s watchable enough, but not something that you’d go out of your way to view.
