Marino Franchitti on a quest for the best race car in the Three Men Four Wheels show

SCOTTISH racer Marino Franchitti will host an all-new series, Three Men Four Wheels, alongside antiques dealer Drew Pritchard of Salvage Hunters fame and broadcaster Andy Jaye in a quest to find the best racing car of them all the temperature.

Available from Saturday on the new Discovery+ streaming service, each week the trio will get their hands on one of the world’s most exciting classic race cars.

Throughout the series, they’ll put together their own “greatest hits” list of the world’s best engines to ever grace a circuit.

With good doses of banter, history and breathtaking driving, they will aim to seduce each other with their selections.

Automotive gems featured in the series include the legendary Stovebolt Special, a truly unique car that launched the career of racing legend Sir Stirling Moss and was driven by Hollywood star Kirk Douglas in the 1955 film The Racers.

Marino, Drew and Andy also have rare access to Ten Tenths, Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason’s private car collection.

Plus, going where cameras have never filmed before, they gain access to the Porsche Motorsport Garage, home to over £100million worth of cars.

The series will also feature some of motoring’s greatest heroes and machines, including Paddy Hopkirk, who drives a replica Monte Carlo Mini, and Scottish rallying legend Colin McRae’s Subaru Impreza 555.

Other cars featured are the Ferrari F40, Lotus 72, Aston Martin Ulster, Porsche 911 ST, Bugatti T35, Jaguar XJ220 and the “Nasty Habit” Hot Rod.
