NEW DISCOVERY CHANNEL SERIES FOLLOWS CAR COLLECTORS LOOKING FOR RARE VEHICLES IN WORLD'S DEADLIEST PLACES

"CHROME UNDERGROUND" Premieres at 10 PM, Tuesday, February 25 on Discovery Channel

(Los Angeles, Calif.) -- Yusuf and Antonio are not your typical car hunters. They work in places no other car collector would dream about stepping foot - traveling inside lawless countries in search of rare, vintage cars owned by the local underworld. The payoff can be huge but so are the risks. Can the guys actually make their high stakes gamble work? And get out with their lives? CHROME UNDERGROUND, a new Discovery Channel series, premieres at 10 PM E/P on Tuesday, February 25.

At one time, Yusuf and Antonio's Austin, Texas-based company, Motoreum, sourced one-of-a-kind cars inside the US. But today valuable cars are extremely difficult to find in the United States - competition is fierce between hunters fighting for a slice of this $8 billion dollar a year industry. So Antonio and Yusuf came up with a plan: head abroad to places that other car dealers were too afraid to visit and seek out high-value 'diamond in the rough' autos that could earn them five or six figure profits every sale.

To stay safe, the guys hire Andrew, a former elite anti-terrorism Marine, who helps them hunt down, secure and smuggle the vehicles back to the safety of the US. But Andrew certainly has his work cut out for him. The guys are not only a major target for thieves because they carry loads of cash but they are pulling off their dangerous deals in countries they've never been to before.

Andrew's experience in covert operations is vital - helping the guys come up with smart solutions to get the high-value vehicles home without criminals stealing them. No plan is too crazy - whether it's camouflaging a 1957 Porsche Speedster in a horse trailer or hiding a 1963 VW Kombi in a shipping crate. But that's just the beginning. Most of these vehicles haven't been driven for decades and the chance of them breaking down in dangerous gang controlled areas is incredibly high.

In the first episode, Yusuf and Antonio travel deep into Mexico City's toughest neighborhood in search of a rare 1937 Type 57 Bugatti worth millions, but when the deal goes south, they are forced to trust Andrew to get them back to America in one piece. But, just like most missions, not everything works out exactly the way Andrew plans, putting all of their lives on the line.

Each week, viewers will follow the guys as they search for vehicles in some of the world's most deadly places - with their hunt will putting them up against everyone from the cartels of Argentina to the favela gangs of Brazil. Only one thing is certain: there's no such thing as an easy day on this job.

CHROME UNDERGROUND is produced for Discovery Channel by Twofour America. For Discovery Channel, Executive Producer is French Horwitz. For Twofour America, Executive Producers are Seth Goolnik, Melanie Leach and Grady Candler.
