The Car Years - Alex Riley and Vicki Butler-Henderson

A brand new motoring TV show fronted by Vicki Butler-Henderson and Alex Riley is set to hit ITV4 on Tuesdays from May 7.

Sponsored by classic car insurer Footman James,the new series for petrolheads will celebrate some of the most important cars in automotive history.

Enjoying a prime evening slot,the first double-bill of The Car Years will air from 8pm and continues at 8.30pm.

In the first instalment,Vicki and Alex champion what in their opinion is the best car released in 1964 with Vicki making the case for the iconic Porsche 911,while Alex thinks American muscle should win and fights the corner of the Ford Mustang.

Only one car can win,and adjudication comes in the form of three expert judges.A panel of famous faces and industry experts join the show's cast,each doubling up as an expert commentator and helping tell the stories and backgrounds behind the stand-out cars.

The first episode sees Quentin Willson,presenter and journalist;Chris Routledge,Managing Director of leading auction house Coys and ex-Top Gear and current The Grand Tour script editor Richard Porter make the big decision on whether the 911 or the Mustang win.

Episode two focuses on 1984 and the warring presenters are challenged to pick a supercar that born in 84 but best sums up the decade of decadence that was the Eighties.Vicki opts for a turbo-powered Group B rally-ready Ford RS200 while Alex champions Miami Vice favourite the Ferrari Testarossa.

Co-presenter Alex Riley explained why car fans should tune to ITV4 for The Cars Years: "I can't think of another show that's so totally focussed on the cars… because we're not buying,selling,or restoring,we can really go to town telling their often surprising stories.Add in gorgeous photography and brilliant archive footage and it's a feast for the eyes."
