“Absolutely nothing compares to the spectacle you are about to see,” this is what Netflix’s new original competition series Hyperdrive, from executive producer Charlize Theron, promises.
The streaming service has released the trailer for the upcoming show, which will see daring drivers from around the world testing their limits in custom cars on what is described as “the biggest, baddest automotive obstacle course ever built.” The promo reveals that the industrial complex where the race tournament will be taking place has been transformed into ten of the most insane racecourses ever imagined, including The Leveler, a six-story monstrosity that will show us exactly what these drivers are made of. The contestants are a law student, a truck driver, a delivery guy, a millionaire, a model, a construction worker, and a lumberjack who have come from across the globe to chase a dream.
Serving as soundtrack is a song whose lyrics include “This is how we ride”.
Hyperdrive launches on Netflix this summer, on August 21.
