American automotive magazine and prodco MotorTrend has greenlit a new series with Roadkill co-host Mike Finnegan.

Faster with Mike Finnegan follows Finnegan as he works to maximize vehicle performance with a minimal budget and limited time.

In each episode, Finnegan is joined by friends David Newbern and Mike Cotten as they work through real-world problems and demonstrate the hard work that goes into adding speed within a limited time frame and without breaking the bank.

Faster with Mike Finnegan is produced by MotorTrend Studios, a division of MotorTrend Group. For MotorTrend Studios, Dustin Gould is the showrunner, and Levi Rugg is executive producer. For MotorTrend Group, Mike Suggett is head of production and development, and Alex Wellen is global president and general manager.

Faster with Mike Finnegan is all about what’s possible for the amateur mechanics who want to spend time building and racing,” said Suggett in a statement. “Finnegan and the guys aren’t concerned with how the car looks. They’re looking to push limits of everyday, accessible vehicles and will impart valuable knowledge that viewers can take away to use in their garages.”

The series will debut exclusively on the subscription streaming MotorTrend App in the first quarter of next year.
