TG2 Cars and Stripes episode one: driving Travis Pastrana's 862bhp Subaru Huckster
Watch the first episode of TG's new YouTube show right here. Includes a 1,000bhp electric Hummer
Not all driving instructors are made the same. Travis Pastrana, for example – not massively concerned with parallel parking or correct use of indicators, but having all four tyres fully lit at all times is non-negotiable. Watch to find out what happened when Jethro Bovingdon met Travis and took a 1983 Subaru GL wagon with 862bhp, aka 'The Family Huckster', for a spin...
Also in episode one: the new GMC Hummer EV. It's not exactly subtle, is it? The $110k Edition 1 model Jack Rix borrowed for an epic roadtrip from Palm Springs to Bagdad had three motors – two at the back, one at the front – producing 1,000bhp and 1,200lb ft of torque. It could do 0–62mph in 3.0secs. And that’s not the scary bit. Because it weighs... 4,100kg.
So strap in for 30-minutes on the above, and much more - and as ever, let us know your thoughts on episode one of TG2 and we'll see you next Sunday for more.
