Sleepers VS Supercars: Netflix’s “Fastest Car” Is A Show For Gearheads

- in Cars

Supercars VS old but highly modified cars?

Don’t believe a 1971 Ford Pinto can beat a Ferrari 488 GTB? Or a 1984 Buick Grand National will leave a McLaren MP4 in its rearview mirror? You better check your attitude.

Because that’s exactly what the new Netflix series Fastest Car aims to show us. In each hour-long episode, three souped-up, modded “sleeper” cars go head to head with one of the world’s most sought-after supercars. There is a whole subculture which begs to differ.

The drivers of exotic supercars put their street cred on the line against deceptively fast sleeper cars built and modified by true gearheads. They come from different walks of life, but these racers and gearheads share a common passion: to win at all costs.

Just because these drivers have a passion for racing cars doesn’t mean they always see eye to eye. The cars are lightning fast, finely tuned and driven by true enthusiasts who want to win in the worst way.

That being said, this show seems like a reality show that capitalizes on the feel-good-all-American-underdog trope. “Fastest Car” doesn’t even have a host. It doesn’t need one. If anything, it’s a series that shows how these vehicles are the extensions of the people who put their life into making them the best they can be.

Netflix’s Fastest Car shows that speed can be for everyone. Sure, speed costs money, but if all you’re buying is speed, you can have it a hell of a lot cheaper than these supercars.

It seems like a good idea for a show, enough so that we’re surprised someone hasn’t done it already.
