ABOUT THE SHOW

Bigger and faster than ever

Part 2 takes viewers on a wild ride from the backcountry of Arizona into the Grand Canyon, through the Appalachian Trail and even to the Autobahn in Germany for the ultimate high-speed road trip to the world famous Nurburgring.

With a lot of excitement and laughs, Adam, Tanner and Rutledge do everything from a drag race in muscle cars at the Gatornationals to testing extreme ways to plough through snow, and testing how much abuse a car can withstand but still run.

Even more exciting are the one-of-a-kind experiences, testing some of the newest and most expensive cars on the road – from the Rolls Royce Wraith and a Ferrari F12 to racing the exclusive Bowler EXR-S street legal rally car against an enduro bike in the Scottish Highlands.
