“Lunes de motores is an entire evening dedicated to cars as a direct response to our audience’s passion for all things automotive. Throughout the night, we not only see the transformation of the automobile, but we also get to appreciate people’s creativity and ingenuity, and the strong visceral connection that exists between man and machine,” said Bilai Joa Silar, Vice President of Content of Discovery en Espanol.
In the series EL DUO MECANICO, premiering Mondays at 9PM ET/PT, viewers will get to know the work of Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman, two true car fanatics and examples of determination. Richard began working at a young age as a firefighter, policeman and paramedic to be able to fulfill his dream of having his own workshop. Meanwhile, Aaron’s great aptitude for all things mechanical and his dedication opened his doors to the world of hot rods. Together they work in the world-famous “Gas Monkey Garage,” where they restore old classic cars and transform them into works of art.
The renewed hit series, OVERHAULIN’ is coming back with a new season on Mondays at 10PM ET/PT to round out the new Lunes de motores night featuring the renowned car designer Chip Foose and introducing the Mexican model Arianny Celeste.
