Discovery Turbo's New Series World's Top 5
Discovery Turbo, India’s only channel for men brings an impressive range of mechanical marvels to find out what drives the global giants of engineering. The channel goes on a global hunt for the ultimate engineering geniuses bringing the greatest man-made machines, from super plane and trains to mega factories built to an unimaginable scale. The series WORLD’S TOP 5 pits these super machines against each other, measuring them in five major categories, to reveal the very best of the best. In each episode, a specific engineering genre is tested, analysed and rated in five key categories to eventually reveal the overall winner.
Starting 13th April, WORLD’S TOP 5 airs every Monday 9PM, on Discovery Turbo.
The series explores the ground-breaking technology behind the world's mightiest planes, trains, earthmovers, ships, cars and factories. What powers the world's fastest car? How does the world's biggest earthmover move? How can a train without wheels reach world-beating speeds? And how does the world's most maneuverable jet fighter stay in the air? Which is the world’s ultimate super ship?
In Mega Factories, world’s largest oil refinery - Reliance Industries’ Jamnagar Factory goes head-to-head with the hub of USA’s Space Program - NASA, amongst other engineering giants. Check out the most outstanding Super Cars; Thrust SSC – the world’s fastest car; the most powerful road car every built – the Bugatti Veyron; explosive accelerator – the Al Anabi Dragster; the ultimate in racing cars – the F1 McLaren Mercedes and the Tesla Roadster – the electric car that’s re-writing the rulebook. From the French super high-speed double decker – the TGV Duplex, to China’s floating vision of the future – the Maglev, and the death-defying mountain climber that spans two countries – the Qingzang train. All are engineering wonders in their own right – but which is the ultimate Super Train? Each WORLD’S TOP 5 mega marvel is a winner in its own right. Watch to find out which is the ultimate world-beater?
In each episode of the WORLD’S TOP 5, audiences are treated to spectacular visuals and unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to these life-changing technological titans.
