Two teams battle to remake the classic Bug into one thing it was never designed to be--a racer!
Two teams. Two classic cars with some re-assembly required. Twenty hours to go until a winner-take-all race. Welcome to FULL THROTTLE. Hosted by the "Turbo Twins," Marc and Eric Kozeluh--legendary street-racers and owners of California's Twins Turbo Motorsport Engineering--each episode goes under the hood, into the past, and onto the street with a storied vehicle.
The original VW Beetle was many things: cute, dependable, inexpensive, easy to work on and enduring. But it was not fast. No worry for the two teams working under the tutelage of the Turbo Twins--just stick in a drivetrain far more powerful than anything ever intended to go in the iconic Bug. The winning team will be the proud owner of a pair of wolves in sheep's clothing, but first they have to make the old hippie favorite into an automotive predator. And while they are doing that, FULL THROTTLE traces the extraordinary history of the "people's car."
