Surrey-based independent to star in ‘Pimp My Ride’ reboot

Performance tuning centre and bodyshop Wrench Studios will feature in a new season of MTV’s ‘Pimp My Ride’.

The new season will be hosted by British rapper Lady Leshurr

The workshop, based in Ashford, Surrey will be extensively customising a number of viewer’s cars including a 1960s Beetle and an early 1990s Mitsubishi GTO.  Production was made possible due to sponsorship from eBay Motors, and the season will start airing on MTV’s YouTube channel from August 19. The series will be hosted by British rapper Lady Leshurr.

Hamid Iqbal, Co-Founder of Wrench Studios, said: ‘We grew up watching Pimp My Ride. Doing jobs on our own cars on the driveway is what got us into custom work and modifying. More and more people are doing jobs on vehicles themselves now and, like many of them, we use eBay to source parts, so it was natural for us to get involved in the new series. It’s been 15 years since it was last on air and we’re going to make sure it lives up to expectations.’

Best known for the original California-set version hosted by rapper Xzibit between 2004-2007, the show went on to have a number of regional spin-offs. This included a version for the UK and Ireland hosted by controversial DJ Tim Westwood.
