Chop Shop - London Garage S2 e5 p1

Musician and TV personality Jools Holland has asked Chop Shop to work their modified car magic and make him a custom recreation of the classic Jet 1, a Rover Car Company gas turbine concept car, circa 1950, that achieved a record breaking 152mph. Will Leepu's artistic integrity survive working to such a strict design brief? And can the team cope with grafting together a 50-year-old Rover 80 body shell and chassis, 60-year-old body Rover 75 body panels, with a 30-year-old Jaguar XJ6 4.2 litre engine and suspension? Jools has certainly never seen tuning like this before! This car is proving to be Chop Shop's greatest design and engineering challenge to date, and with a collective age of 140 years, this custom classic is even older than Bernie!

Bernie, Leepu and the Chop Chop team have landed a new commission actor and comedian Johnny Vegas. He wants a mobile volcano in which he can play batman to solve all the world's ills and which will make him feel as if he's sitting on his gran's lap after she's eaten nine chilli peppers. Other than that, it's got to be a classic-shaped Volkswagen Golf - albeit an uber-powerful four wheel drive one (Johnny already drives a Golf R32). Chop Shop mechanics and panel beaters, Julian, Lee and Shaun embrace the project with wild optimism - sourcing the engine and four-wheel drive running gear from a 300hp Subaru Impreza, the like of which has found fame on the world rally stage.

Legendary French footballer and model, David Ginola, invites Bernie to the South of France and asks him to build a car inspired by the iconic American cruiser, the Chevrolet Camaro SS. Unfortunately, Leepu doesnt wait for Bernie to return to get the full brief and goes off on a Ferrari-inspired tangent, blowing over two thousand pounds of Bernies precious cash on a roadworthy Porsche as a donor car. Last episode for this season.
