One Car Too Far, a new 5-part survival series that follows a former British special forces operative, Gary Humphrey, and an American petrol head, Bill Wu, as they are dropped into incredible landscapes and forced to work together to survive and ultimately escape to safety.
The twist _ they will have to learn to survive using a four-wheel drive all-purpose vehicle. It's the perfect combination of personalities as one knows how to drive and the other knows how to survive. With no proper roads and no real supplies, the two must rely on instinct and expertise alone to make it out.
Discovery Channel's latest survival series will take you on the drive of your life to the most extreme parts of Chile, South America.
One Car Too Far elevates survival to a new level with an added complication _ Humphrey and Wu have just three days to track down a 10- year-old red car that is not equipped for harsh terrains, and bring it back to civilisation using only their wits and their wheels on an incredible journey that pits them against the clock and Chile's most extreme environments. From perilous icy glaciers, to intensely humid and dense jungles, to shifting sands in arid deserts, and mountains with treacherous slopes and sub-zero temperatures, One Car Too Far pushes the limits of human endurance and explores the measures we resort to in order to survive.
Watch as they attempt to use whatever supplies they can find to turn their four-wheel drive into an all-purpose vehicle that can get them through any challenge.
Witness as Humphrey and Wu's persistence to stay alive results in unusual but ingenious survival tips and quirky mechanical tricks, including taking ordinary parts from their car to create hunting weapons, building a shelter in the snow or using an egg to seal a crack in their car's radiator.
To top off all the action, every episode of One Car Too Far will leave viewers at the edge of their seats with a spectacular do-or-die car stunt that exerts mechanical brilliance, supreme driving skills and a lot of luck.
One Car Too Far premieres today at 8pm, with encores every Monday at 3pm and Wednesday at 11pm on Discovery Channel (TrueVisions 20).
