A new, “high-octane” entertainment car competition show called Street Car Showdown (w/t) is to be produced jointly by Race Across the World producer Studio Lambert and Ant and Dec’s production company, Mitre Television as a non-TX pilot for BBC Two.

The idea of the show was conceived by Ant and Dec, who have a long held fascination with the world of car modifiers. Each week, two rival teams from across the country are challenged to convert two ordinary second hand cars into souped-up racing machines in just ten days and a limited budget, competing in a series of challenges before one team ultimately wins the title of Street Car Showdown Champions.  

Ant and Dec said: “We have been fascinated with this world since we were teenagers in the North East and experienced car modders meeting up on Roker seafront in Sunderland to show off their creations. We came up with the format to shine a light onto the untapped world of car fanatics and highlight their passion, talent and creativity. We are great admirers of the team at Studio Lambert and are thrilled to be partnering with them on this project.”

Stephen Lambert, CEO Studio Lambert, said: “We were delighted when Mitre asked us to work with them on developing Ant and Dec’s fun, adrenalin-filled idea and producing it with them.”

Street Car Showdown (w/t) is a co-production between Studio Lambert and Mitre Television. Mike Cotton and Ian Carre are Executive Producers for Studio Lambert with Matt Wilkinson Executive Producer from Mitre Television. Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnnelly are Creative Consultants.
