Because the Christmas is also that time when you’re able to snatch a prolonged holiday, here are some recommendations for the car buff that wants’ to spend the winter wonderland amid clouds of tire smoke.
While the Amazon venue will have you fixed to the latest episodes of The Grand Tour, we turned our attention to the competition from Netflix – yes, that great place for TV series such as The Crown or Marvel’s TV endeavors. We’re looking at Netflix because they recently introduced a new feature that lets you download the favorite TV series or movies so you won’t hog your WiFi or 4G LTE. True, you have to live in the US to take advantage of the lists we present.
Let’s get going with the car TV shows. In alphabetical order we have the A-Team, the original five season series that made the GMC Vandura into an icon. You can then have some modern elements in the Motor Trend Epic Drives – just ten episodes are there, so they won’t take all your spare time. Head 2 Head is a comparison series again from Motor Trend with 12 episodes. Highway Thru Hell makes you think – over the course of four seasons – about going out at night on a snowy mountain in Canada, and yeah, it has some great tows as well. Roadkill meanwhile is in a league of its own – focusing on hot rods and muscle cars.
Let’s move towards the cinema. We begin with “A Faster Horse,” a documentary from 2015 depicting the legendary journey of the Ford Mustang. Apex: The Story of the Hypercar is pretty much self-explanatory, talking about extreme rides such as the Pagani Huayra, Koenigsegg Agera and others. Death Race 2 and 3:Inferno are not really anything else but B-movie entries, but they do have spectacular car mashups in the same vein as the Mad Max series. The Dust to Glory meanwhile chronicles a real world racing inferno – the Baja 1000 race. The Fast and the Furious and Tokyo Drift are appreciated entries in what has become a cult action series. Go back to reality afterwards in Journey to Le Mans and Revenge of the Electric Car.
