Jimmy de Ville is an extreme engineer who spends his life driving himself and machines to breaking point. His idea of fun is rummaging around junkyards, building extreme machines from scrapped vehicles and salvaged parts.
A self-confessed engine addict, Jimmy has spent his life stripping, tinkering and rebuilding engines for pleasure. His many accomplishments range from engineer and race car driver to adventurer and solider.
In Engine Addict with Jimmy De Ville, Jimmy will explore abandoned factories, junk yards and deserted airfields to unearth an incredible range of combustion engines across the globe.
Drawing on the guidance of local engine experts, Jimmy will uncover the history and heritage behind these iconic engines and the vehicles they powered, and modify them for use in his own extreme hand-built vehicles.
