Lincolnshire daredevil and TV star Guy Martin will explore the world of electric vehicles and try and set a world speed record when his latest show airs on television on Monday night.
‘Guy Martin: The World’s Fastest Electric Car?’ will be broadcast on Monday, August 9 at 9pm on Channel 4.
The new show will see Guy attempt to build an electric car that can race its way into the record book.
He will try to set a new electric vehicle world speed record using a classic Volkswagen Beetle fitted with state-of-the-art technology that allows it to accelerate faster than most supercars.
Guy is no stranger to record attempts and currently holds the following Guinness World Records:
- Fastest speed on a gravity-powered snow sled
- Highest speed on a wall of death
- Fastest soapbox
- Fastest tractor (modified)
The show will also see Guy set off on a 1100-mile road trip to determine how reliable the country’s vehicle charging infrastructure is.
He also said earlier this year that he hopes to break the 300mph land speed record on a motorbike.
Before he moved into TV work, Guy was a professional motorbike racer and managed a total of 17 podium finishes.
