Discovery Channel’s “Chrome Underground” car hunters Antonio Brunet and Yusuf Johnson head deep into Brazil’s jungle on Friday’s episode in their search for rare cars.
The car hunters travel to some of the most dangerous locations across the globe to find rare, classic cars. Their journey into Brazil’s jungle begins by boat, which, according to their local guide, is the safest way to access the compound.
The multi-million dollar car collection is hidden in the jungle outside of San Paulo, away from thieves, to protect the most valuable classic cars of Brazil.
“There is a legendary collector here in Brazil. Very rarely does he let anybody look at his collection. So, we’re honored to be able to see it,” Brunet explained.
Brazil is home to the rarest cars in the world, exhibiting exceptional sports cars and production cars made exclusively for the Brazilian market at local factories. Antonio and Yusuf are hoping to finally have a chance to find a car that they can make a profit on.
Large deals like this can attract the attention of criminals and the car hunters are entering risky territory on this trip. The continuous rainfall adds another element of fear and uncertainty to the car hunters’ journey.
In TheWrap’s exclusive preview, once the boat arrives at the destination, the hunters’ guide leaves them with their driver and returns to the boat. Brunet and Johnson are left feeling alone and worried with the ominous jungle and journey looming ahead.
“Chrome Underground” airs at 10/9c on Discovery Channel.
