MIAMI, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The talented mechanic Martín Vaca and his team are back with new challenges and more of the incredible automobile conversions that have fascinated Hispanic audiences. With his passion for all things motorized, Martín continues to push the limits of his ingenuity to accomplish extreme transformations, such as turning a double cabin pickup into a hearse or building the world's biggest limousine, roomy enough for 50 people and complete with a dance floor and DJ booth. The third season of MEXICÁNICOS (#mexicanicos) premieres May 9 and will air Mondays at 10PM E/P during the network's 'Lunes de motores' programming block.
Special guests this season include Mexican singer and comedian Lola Cortés who visits Martín's Guadalajara workshop with a special request: to make her Corvette 2000 into a 1950s model. In another episode, world boxing champion Ana María Torres, aka "La Guerrera" (The Warrior), asks Martín to personalize her 1954 Ford Custom Line. She wants to add a boxing glove emblem on the front of the car and an image of the World Boxing Council's Diamond Belt under the hood.
A new team member also joins the show this season: Lidia, an electromechanical engineering student hired as an assistant to Isabel, Martín's daughter. Lidia will have to stand up for her work and ideas in a male-dominated workplace.
