DISCOVERY EN ESPAÑOL SHOWCASES THE WORLD’S MOST IMAGINATIVE HOT RODS AND LIMOUSINES IN THE PREMIERE OF MEXICÁNICOS
Miami, Florida, February 17, 2015 – Discovery en Español presents MEXICÁNICOS, a new original series starring renowned Mexican restorer and mechanic Martín Vaca, who has spent more than 50 years transforming the world’s most astonishing limousines. Starting March 2, MEXICÁNICOS (#mexicanicos) will air Mondays at 10PM E/P as part of the network’s popular ‘Lunes de motores’ block.
Filmed entirely in Guadalajara, Mexico, MEXICÁNICOS profiles the engineering and creative challenges Martín Vaca and his collaborators encounter in the process of renovating unique and surprising vehicles. All eight episodes of this docu-reality are filmed at “Vaca Limousines,” one of the country’s largest transformation workshops, which specialize in creating customized limousines, hearses and hot rods. As long as it has wheels and an engine, no vehicle is off limits for Martín and his team, whose creations include a Boeing 727 converted into a limousine, a giant limo shaped like a vintage ocean liner, and a car in the shape of a chili pepper to promote a local distillery.
Martín Vaca and his team have participated in numerous international events in Las Vegas as well as the prestigious LCT in New York.
MEXICÁNICOS was produced by Drako Media for Discovery en Español under the direction of Gerardo Brandy, in co-production with High Noon Entertainment. The production was supervised by Michela Giorelli, Discovery’s Vice President of Production and Development, and Discovery’s Executives Producers Rafael Rodriguez and Irune Ariztoy.
