MUMBAI: Returning with 22nd season of motoring fun, Discovery Turbo’s FIFTH GEAR is a magazine series filled with the recent driving news, expert opinions, and practical & reliable advices. Sharp new features accompany the essential information, stunning driving and beautiful cars that keep you wanting more week after week.

With all the latest supercars, racing and record attempts, as well as exciting automotive news, advice and reviews, an enhanced edition of FIFTH GEAR, starting May 12 on Discovery Turbo, promises to bring more fascinating information and fast-paced thrills than ever before.

From super cars, sports utility vehicles to hatchbacks and hybrids, the FIFTH GEAR team combines its enviable presenting line up of Timothy ‘Tiff’ Needell (former-Le Mans winner), Jason Plato (multiple Touring Car champion), Vicki Butler-Henderson (a racing driver instructor from the age of 17) and Jonny Smith (serial petrol head and car buyer) – undoubtedly the best and most knowledgeable drivers on television – with a new remit to bring more information than ever before to a global car audience.

FIFTH GEAR is everything a car enthusiast could want in a TV show, which is exactly why its home is Discovery Turbo. This new and exclusive season features a range of new tests, new races and new motors from around the world. The team of course put supercars through their paces including the Pagani Huayra, the Roadyacht GTR as well as a Vicki putting the most powerful Ferrari ever through its paces: the 730bhp F12 Berlinetta. Also, Jonny is behind the wheel of the bonkers new Morgan Three-Wheeler - a brand new model that based on a design from 100 years ago; Tiff is joined by German motoring legend and ‘Queen of the Nurburgring' Sabine Schmitz for a head to head battle between our two favourite sports cars of the last year - the BMW M6 and Porsche 911; and Jason heads to the track to test the ?100,000 BMW M6 super coupe.

FIFTH GEAR is dedicated to uncovering the most exclusive information about the performance of anything automobile. The series highlights new car reviews, second-hand bargains, industry news and other topical features, including issues surrounding road safety and taxation.  From road testing the new Mini Cooper Sand examining the trend among celebrities to purchase large sports utility vehicles, to profiling a Lamborghini Murcielago, this series is for anyone who has a passion for petrol power.



The series not only highlights supercars, it also offers solid consumer advice covering topics such as the top five motoring apps, buyers’ guide and a petrol ‘taste’ test investigating the difference between supermarket petrol and premium brands.

FIFTH GEAR airs weekdays (Monday to Friday) at 10 PM on Discovery Turbo.
