Discovery-owned net Velocity has added the car modification series Unique Rides to its line-up, with an air date set for February 2.

Produced by New York- and Philadelphia-based Alkemy X, the series will chronicle automotive designer Will Castro (pictured, right) – founder of Will Castro Designs – and his Team Unique from Unique Automotive as they transform ordinary cars into “four-wheeled works of art.”

The series will document the process behind each build for A-List celebrities, professional athletes and exclusive clientele that includes New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.; New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony; boxer Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin; musicians Busta Rhymes, Austin Mahone and Jason Derulo; and actor John Leguizamo (pictured, left).

Mark Finkelpearl serves as executive producer for Alkemy X, while David Lee is exec producing for Velocity.

Unique Rides is slated to premiere on February 2 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Velocity.
