"Car Saviors"
All-New Special Premieres Monday, April 17 at 10PM ET/PT on Discovery
 
          In the world of junkyard-bound cars, there are two creative minds whose mission it is to push the boundaries on resurrecting the classics and turning them into supercars. Car mavens Andrew Comrie-Picard (ACP) and Brian Scotto have perfected their method for reengineering priceless cars with a simple three-step method – step one: find the car; step two: conjure up an intense build; step three: show off the remarkable results. The auto restoration duo push the limits of what is mechanically possible in Discovery Channel’s newest special “CAR SAVIORS” premiering Monday, April 17 at 10 PM ET/PT.
 
          Brian Scotto is the chief brand officer of Hoonigan Industries and the mad scientist behind the seemingly impossible builds. ACP, a pro race car driver, stunt driver, and car savant, is a self-proclaimed car “purist” and believes that the classics should be restored to their original condition. Together, they attempt builds that push the boundaries of speed and performance on classic automobiles that have been forgotten. These impressive creations are often the centerpiece of viral videos, rally races, and drifting competitions.
 
          Scotto and ACP know the cars inside and out – each car build comes with an extensive history and impact on the automotive industry. The CAR SAVIORS pay homage to each iconic ride by giving them an incredible facelift while letting their original characteristics take the driver’s seat.
 
          With wildly different principles and ideas, there are no limits to the modifications that can be made. While the team doesn’t always agree on how to remodel and reconfigure each car, the end products somehow always exceed even their highest expectations.
