National Geographic to launch 4th season of ‘Supercars’
MUMBAI: National Geographic Channel (NGC) is all set to launch the fourth season of its show ‘Nat Geo Supercars’ this October. This time, the face of the show is supermodel and actress Lisa Haydon, who will add glamour to the battle of the attractive mean machines.
Viewers will see the BMW M3 take on the Lexus ISF from 13 October, airing at 10:30 pm from Monday to Friday.
NGC Networks and Fox International Channels India VP marketing and communications Debarpita Banerjee said, “We are excited to bring back ‘Nat Geo Supercars’—one of our top-rated franchises. This year, there is more than just an attractive line-up of supercars. There is a high-octane race between the best of engines that is bound to leave all car enthusiasts and Supercar fans breathless.”
In each episode, host Lee Reherman will challenge professional race car drivers Tanner Foust and Paul Tracy to take two of the world’s most admirably designed ‘supercars’ and push their limits to the maximum. Foust and Tracy test these cars on their performance on the road and put them head to head in an all-out competition to demonstrate why they are truly considered ‘supercars’.
Matchups include a BMW M3 versus a Lexus ISF; Technocraft Lamborghini versus the Joyride Ford GT; Ferrari 430 Scuderia versus Ferrari California; Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG versus the Cadillac CTSV; and the Bentley Supersports versus Aston Martin DBS.
Haydon said, “The show is sporty, fast and real. From the suave BMW to the swift Ferrari, ‘Nat Geo Supercars’ has the best beauties in the business. It is unconventional, follows no limits and I personally love watching these cars ripping the wind. I am happy to be associated with something so off-beat yet enjoys a wide fan base.”
As part of the marketing and promotions for the new season, NGC will be running a watch-and-win contest where viewers can answer a question flashed during the show and stand a chance to win an iPad and NGC Supercars-branded merchandise.
