    Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, Season 1 | Episode 3

    In this episode of Supercar Megabuild, Engineers Ralph Hosier and Ranen Rudra face what seems an impossible task set by pop star client Shane Lynch: take his refined, elegant, 1979 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow, and turn it into an all out, bad boy styled drift machine. This will be the ultimate challenge even for the experienced engineers - they've never done a drift car before and certainly not one based on a prestige brand like Rolls Royce. It's a journey that will take them to the home of drifting, Japan, where they'll learn the skills and mechanics of this motorsport from the best in the business. The Rolls Royce they have been given by their mentor Afzal Kahn is owned by pop star Shane Lynch, and as part of the package they'll need to give the car a complete restyling package, as well as going back to the drawing board with the mechanics of the vehicle. In a spectacular finale the Rolls will be handed over to Shane at an international drifting contest in Ireland - will the client like the car, and more importantly, will it be able to go sideways round the track, drifting and doing the job it was never designed to do?!
