I'm Ali-A and this is Superchargers.

0:00:020:00:03

The show that puts you in the driving seat to transform

0:00:030:00:06

your boring and broken family car into the ride of your dreams.

0:00:060:00:09

That is awesome!

0:00:140:00:16

My Superchargers team -

0:00:160:00:17

mechanic Rebecca...

0:00:170:00:18

Doing a grand job.

0:00:180:00:20

..and cool car nerd Sideways Sid.

0:00:200:00:23

-Nah, this is too cold.

-..are as mad about motors as I am.

0:00:230:00:26

Look what's in front of us. The ultimate supercar.

0:00:260:00:28

Together, we will be helping kids all over the UK transform

0:00:280:00:33

their old family bangers...

0:00:330:00:34

It's a bit disgusting.

0:00:340:00:36

You're hit by...not the best of smells.

0:00:360:00:39

..into wow-factor wagons.

0:00:390:00:42

Love it!

0:00:420:00:43

By fixing the problems under the bonnet...

0:00:430:00:45

This is the most intense thing in the world.

0:00:450:00:48

-Teamwork!

-..funking up the inside with gadgets and gizmos...

0:00:480:00:53

That is amazing!

0:00:530:00:55

..and giving the outside of the car a spectacular new look...

0:00:550:00:59

Whoa, it's perfect!

0:00:590:01:01

And the best part? Their parents don't have a clue

0:01:010:01:03

what it will look like until it's too late.

0:01:030:01:06

-Oh, no.

-Oh, yes.

0:01:060:01:08

He's got to remember he has to go to school in this.

0:01:080:01:10

Three, two, one...

0:01:100:01:13

ALL: Open the door!

0:01:130:01:15

Look at it!

0:01:170:01:19

Hold on tight! This is Superchargers!

0:01:190:01:23

Hello, I'm Ali-A.

0:01:310:01:32

Welcome to a special Superchargers episode where I get to show you guys

0:01:320:01:38

some of my favourite moments from the series,

0:01:380:01:41

and give you an exclusive sneak peek of previously unseen stuff,

0:01:410:01:46

all just from me to you.

0:01:460:01:49

Not only that, we're going to go back in time

0:01:490:01:52

before anyone had even heard of Ali-A's Superchargers

0:01:520:01:56

to see the very first test transformation my team ever did

0:01:560:02:00

on an old banger in Manchester that desperately needed my help.

0:02:000:02:05

Hi, I'm Casey, I'm 13 years old and I love to do photography.

0:02:080:02:12

I live with my mum and dad...

0:02:120:02:14

-Hello.

-Hiya.

-..my little sister Lucy, who loves gaming...

0:02:140:02:18

-Hi, I'm seven.

-..and my sister Hannah, who's ten.

0:02:180:02:21

Hannah only speaks to our family and nobody else.

0:02:230:02:25

It's because she suffers from a condition called selective mutism,

0:02:250:02:28

which means she doesn't speak in public.

0:02:280:02:31

I often have to speak for her.

0:02:310:02:32

Hannah loves snapping on her camera, too.

0:02:330:02:35

She takes really good photos

0:02:350:02:36

and it's something we enjoy doing together.

0:02:360:02:38

Another important part of our family is our car.

0:02:400:02:43

We call him The Big Boo. We've had The Big Boo for eight years now.

0:02:430:02:46

-That's longer than Lucy's even been alive.

-LUCY GIGGLES

0:02:460:02:49

Mum takes us to school in Boo every day.

0:02:490:02:51

But, as you can see, he's getting old.

0:02:510:02:54

He's got loads of bumps and scratches all over him.

0:02:540:02:56

His insides are really tatty, too.

0:02:560:02:59

So, how did Big Boo get all those bumps and scratches on him?

0:02:590:03:02

Well, I'm not a very good driver and we need to make the gateposts bigger

0:03:020:03:06

on the driveway!

0:03:060:03:07

Last time Mum took Boo to see a mechanic,

0:03:090:03:10

he said he might not pass his next MOT,

0:03:100:03:13

which is a safety test for cars.

0:03:130:03:15

If he fails, Mum says we'll need to take him the scrapheap

0:03:150:03:18

because we haven't got enough money to fix him,

0:03:180:03:20

and that would cause us a big problem.

0:03:200:03:22

Ali-A, please help us supercharge The Big Boo.

0:03:220:03:24

We want to keep him for ages

0:03:240:03:26

and the three of us have got some cool ideas

0:03:260:03:28

to give him a new look,

0:03:280:03:30

but Mum and Dad have no idea what we're thinking.

0:03:300:03:33

Welcome, everybody, to Superchargers HQ.

0:03:360:03:40

Hannah, Lucy and Casey, what's the car like at the moment

0:03:400:03:43

-on the outside?

-It's quite scratched and bumped.

0:03:430:03:46

Scratched and bumped? So, it's had a few knocks.

0:03:460:03:48

We're going to make it look nice and awesome.

0:03:480:03:50

Mum and Dad, you're giving your kids control of the design of Big Boo.

0:03:500:03:53

So, on the big screen here,

0:03:530:03:55

we're going to take a look at some options and decide what we want.

0:03:550:03:57

It's all down to you three girls.

0:03:570:03:59

Well, I really like the colour mint green.

0:03:590:04:01

Ooh! You like that?

0:04:010:04:03

Your favourite colour all over the car.

0:04:030:04:05

-Purple.

-What are we thinking about that?

0:04:050:04:07

-Yeah!

-Lucy's loving that.

-I like the mint green!

0:04:070:04:10

No, I like the purple.

0:04:100:04:12

A little bit of arguments going on there.

0:04:120:04:14

-Tartan.

-Let's have a look at tartan.

0:04:140:04:17

-Ooh! That is pretty crazy.

-Wow, some of those ideas are a bit worrying.

0:04:170:04:21

Different paint combinations.

0:04:210:04:23

Dad is REALLY liking that one.

0:04:230:04:25

No, he's not. The colours are too bright.

0:04:250:04:28

Purple and green doesn't go.

0:04:280:04:30

I don't like any of those.

0:04:310:04:32

-Nothing?

-No.

-Mum and Dad, what have they let themselves into?

0:04:320:04:36

From now on, Big Boo's new look is completely under wraps.

0:04:360:04:41

Oh, Big Boo's design is already causing family conflict.

0:04:450:04:50

Will they go with mint green or purple?

0:04:500:04:53

Unfortunately, it sounds like Dad's going to like neither of them.

0:04:530:04:57

Sorry, Dad. But Casey and Co aren't the only family

0:04:570:05:01

to have an awkward exchange at Superchargers HQ,

0:05:010:05:04

so I couldn't resist showing you my top three awks moments,

0:05:040:05:08

starting with some definite red faces over some very bad driving.

0:05:080:05:14

Let's start with the bumper.

0:05:180:05:20

As you can see, it's sort of deteriorated

0:05:200:05:23

-because of my mum's terrible driving.

-I'm not a bad driver!

0:05:230:05:27

I don't know why he said that!

0:05:270:05:29

It wasn't me. I didn't say nothing.

0:05:290:05:31

OK, maybe Mum isn't the only culprit then, eh, Dad?!

0:05:310:05:35

Open the door!

0:05:390:05:41

-Oh, my goodness.

-Dad, what are you thinking at the moment?

0:05:420:05:45

-Uh...

-Speechless. Speechless.

0:05:480:05:51

He loved it in the end.

0:05:510:05:52

Molly, you're super into fashion.

0:05:560:05:58

What do you think of your dad's fashion sense today, do you like it?

0:05:580:06:01

No.

0:06:010:06:03

-You don't like it?

-No.

-What about my fashion sense today?

0:06:030:06:06

-Do you like it?

-It's all right.

-It's all right. OK.

0:06:060:06:08

Harsh critic. Very harsh critic.

0:06:080:06:10

Harsh, but fair!

0:06:100:06:12

So, Molly's dad, what an absolute legend.

0:06:160:06:18

It was embarrassing for both me and it was embarrassing for him.

0:06:180:06:21

Anyway, back to Casey and her sisters.

0:06:210:06:24

Before they can decide whether green or purple is the way to go

0:06:240:06:28

for their final new-look car,

0:06:280:06:30

they need to make Big Boo roadworthy down at the Superchargers workshop.

0:06:300:06:35

This was my first Superchargers fix for mechanic Rebecca,

0:06:390:06:44

a car-mad racing driver

0:06:440:06:45

who loves getting her hands dirty fixing up motors.

0:06:450:06:49

Now, the biggest issue with Boo are his brakes are almost worn out.

0:06:500:06:54

Now, brakes for a car are a little bit like the brakes on your bike.

0:06:540:06:58

Can you see this pad here?

0:06:590:07:01

It squeezes the wheel when you press that brake there.

0:07:010:07:05

That's stopping the wheel from rotating, and that's what stops you.

0:07:050:07:08

Big Boo's brakes are worn out from years of squeezing together

0:07:090:07:14

to stop the car. So that's what we're changing today.

0:07:140:07:18

Before I went in there, I didn't really know what to expect.

0:07:190:07:22

I was quite excited, but I was also nervous at the same time

0:07:220:07:25

because I was worried that if I did something wrong,

0:07:250:07:28

I might make The Big Boo not work.

0:07:280:07:30

Hold it on there straight.

0:07:300:07:31

Yes? Press the button.

0:07:310:07:33

A bit harder. Yeah.

0:07:330:07:34

-Gently. Yeah.

-Rebecca is an expert,

0:07:340:07:36

so please don't try to fix your car on your own.

0:07:360:07:40

We're going to get really close to Big Boo's brakes now.

0:07:420:07:46

What we need to do is remove the pads.

0:07:460:07:49

Casey, would you like to have a go?

0:07:490:07:51

Pull it towards you and then slide it out towards me.

0:07:510:07:54

Very good.

0:07:540:07:56

Then this one, that's on the back. Is it a bit sticky?

0:07:560:07:59

-It's a bit stiff. There you go.

-Perfect.

0:07:590:08:02

The hardest part about the whole thing was getting

0:08:020:08:04

the brake pads off. I got grease all over my gloves in the end.

0:08:040:08:08

With Big Boo's new brake pads in place...

0:08:090:08:12

OK, very good.

0:08:120:08:13

..the girls help me fix his torn wiper blades.

0:08:150:08:18

-It's all rusty.

-Yeah,

0:08:180:08:20

that's right, and it's dangerous because if they don't work properly,

0:08:200:08:23

the driver can't see through the windscreen.

0:08:230:08:25

-How did it do it?

-It's age and use.

0:08:250:08:28

Oh, dear, he's getting wet!

0:08:330:08:35

The new wipers clear the screen perfectly, which means Big Boo

0:08:350:08:41

is roadworthy and ready for his secret makeover.

0:08:410:08:44

I'm really excited about the girls taking control

0:08:440:08:47

of the design and everything.

0:08:470:08:49

A bit nervous as well.

0:08:490:08:50

Just wondering what they're going to come up with.

0:08:500:08:52

I think my mum was nervous, but she shouldn't be

0:08:520:08:55

because we're awesome designers.

0:08:550:08:56

So, with Big Boo roadworthy again,

0:09:010:09:04

it's time for Casey and Co to let their imaginations run wild as they

0:09:040:09:08

start changing the look of the inside and outside of the car,

0:09:080:09:13

all without their mum and dad having any idea what is happening.

0:09:130:09:16

But will their parents love it or hate it?

0:09:160:09:20

Here's a sneak peek of what's coming up.

0:09:200:09:23

Open the door!

0:09:250:09:27

Mum and Dad get to see the transformed Big Boo

0:09:270:09:30

for the first time.

0:09:300:09:31

-Wow.

-And I show you my best moments from the series.

0:09:310:09:35

It looks amazing.

0:09:350:09:37

Probably the best day of my life.

0:09:370:09:39

Exciting stuff, and for more Superchargers action,

0:09:410:09:44

check out the CBBC website, where you'll see some of this...

0:09:440:09:47

Ooh, I love it!

0:09:470:09:49

Let's get it.

0:09:490:09:51

Have a go at this...

0:09:510:09:53

..and play your friends at this.

0:09:530:09:56

Let's get it playing, see what it is.

0:09:560:09:59

HORN HONKS A TUNE

0:09:590:10:01

Rebecca is jamming out already.

0:10:030:10:06

Seven Years... Seven Years. Lukas Graham.

0:10:060:10:09

That is correct!

0:10:090:10:12

And there is more hilarious song honking action

0:10:120:10:15

over on the CBBC website, so go and check it out.

0:10:150:10:19

Now back to Casey and her sisters.

0:10:220:10:24

Will they go with purple? Will they go with green?

0:10:240:10:27

Let's find out.

0:10:270:10:29

In Manchester, Casey's getting busy.

0:10:320:10:35

I've been thinking loads about the design of Big Boo.

0:10:350:10:38

I was looking for patterns on the internet and I found

0:10:380:10:41

one particular idea which I thought would look amazing,

0:10:410:10:44

so now I'm drawing my own version of it.

0:10:440:10:47

Also, because Hannah loves photography,

0:10:480:10:50

we've came up with a clever way to get her photos into the car.

0:10:500:10:53

Hannah, which one's your favourite?

0:10:530:10:55

I like that one.

0:10:560:10:58

With design ideas decided,

0:10:590:11:01

it's time to get cracking on Big Boo's transformation.

0:11:010:11:04

It's scary. We don't know what's going to be done

0:11:040:11:06

and what's going to happen.

0:11:060:11:08

Ooh! Looks like Casey's got her way with the bright mint green.

0:11:080:11:12

What will Mum and Dad think?

0:11:120:11:14

Do we trust our girls or not?

0:11:140:11:16

That's the question.

0:11:160:11:19

Ah! There's Casey's diamond - and in Lucy's favourite colour.

0:11:190:11:22

Good compromise.

0:11:220:11:24

My favourite part of the car is the diamonds and I can't believe

0:11:240:11:28

that it has come to life.

0:11:280:11:30

Big Boo's looking great.

0:11:310:11:33

Time to add those finishing touches, girls.

0:11:330:11:36

Nice curtains! I can't believe I designed my own car.

0:11:360:11:41

I really like all the accessories.

0:11:410:11:42

It makes it unique and personal to the family.

0:11:420:11:45

That's so cool!

0:11:460:11:48

Casey and Co love it, but will their parents feel the same?

0:11:480:11:53

I'm really looking forward to seeing their reactions.

0:11:530:11:55

I think Mum's going to like it,

0:11:550:11:57

but I'm not sure what my dad's going to think.

0:11:570:11:59

Ooh! Casey's keeping Big Boo's new look under wraps.

0:12:040:12:07

All will be revealed very soon.

0:12:070:12:09

But, first, I'm dying to show you guys

0:12:090:12:12

my top never-seen-before moments from the series,

0:12:120:12:15

with two of our superchargers getting a bit of an exclusive

0:12:150:12:19

of their own.

0:12:190:12:20

Sid took Mohammad to see some seriously ker-ching motors

0:12:230:12:27

at a supercar showroom.

0:12:270:12:29

-It's incredible.

-But what I've never shown you

0:12:290:12:32

is Mohammad starting up this £250,000 beauty.

0:12:320:12:35

I've never known such a powerful car.

0:12:360:12:38

I didn't know what was going to happen.

0:12:380:12:40

Fire away.

0:12:400:12:42

ENGINE ROARS

0:12:430:12:45

That is loud.

0:12:480:12:50

-Nice, isn't it?

-It was extremely rad.

0:12:540:12:56

It was ear deafening. Literally.

0:12:560:12:59

-I had earache.

-So loud. She had an earache.

0:13:000:13:03

Wow, that sound is incredible!

0:13:040:13:06

My second exclusive unseen moment is when Sid bagged Oliver a one-to-one

0:13:080:13:13

masterclass with car photographer Chris Frosin.

0:13:130:13:17

-That's epic.

-What I've never shown you is Oliver getting

0:13:170:13:20

the surprise of his life.

0:13:200:13:22

I've got a racing driver here who is actually going to take you out.

0:13:220:13:26

You're going to have to jump out and jump in the passenger seat.

0:13:260:13:29

My favourite part of the day was when I got to sit inside the car.

0:13:340:13:39

That is awesome! I've ever done anything like this before

0:13:390:13:42

so, yeah, I was really excited.

0:13:420:13:44

I really like this!

0:13:440:13:45

Wow, that car was completely awesome!

0:13:540:13:57

And it's almost time for Casey and Co to reveal

0:13:570:14:01

their car's finished new look to both Mum and Dad.

0:14:010:14:04

But will they love it or will they hate it?

0:14:040:14:08

Casey's definitely not too sure.

0:14:080:14:10

It's the day of the big reveal, but at home in Manchester,

0:14:180:14:21

Casey is starting to worry about how Big Boo's new look will go down

0:14:210:14:26

with Mum and Dad.

0:14:260:14:27

I'm nervous about how they're going to react

0:14:270:14:30

when they do actually see it.

0:14:300:14:32

I'm sure they're going to...like it.

0:14:330:14:36

If not, they're going to have to deal with it, aren't you?

0:14:360:14:39

How are you feeling about the car?

0:14:390:14:41

Well, the anxious wait is over

0:14:460:14:48

because it's finally time to reveal Big Boo's finished design.

0:14:480:14:52

Well, Casey and family, first of all, we have the certificate to say

0:14:520:14:55

the car is safe to drive - I'm going to hand that off to you, Sue,

0:14:550:14:58

but, Casey, what was Big Boo like before this crazy transformation?

0:14:580:15:02

He was all tatty, and bumped and bruised.

0:15:020:15:05

Girls, what do you reckon Mum and Dad will think of the brand-new car?

0:15:050:15:08

-I don't know really know.

-I think Mum's going to like it

0:15:080:15:11

-but Dad's going to be a bit...

-You think Dad'll be a bit "um and ah" -

0:15:110:15:14

-he's not going to be too sure?

-I've got to drive that car.

0:15:140:15:17

That's a good point! It's a good point.

0:15:170:15:19

Let's hope they've not ruined it.

0:15:190:15:21

So, no more waiting around.

0:15:210:15:22

You guys know what to say.

0:15:220:15:24

Let's... Open the door!

0:15:240:15:27

-Wow!

-Wow!

0:15:330:15:36

What do you think of that?

0:15:380:15:40

It's amazing.

0:15:400:15:42

It's mint!

0:15:420:15:44

Big Boo's outside has gone from boring to beautiful,

0:15:440:15:48

with a mint green base colour and purple diamonds

0:15:480:15:51

inspired by Casey's drawing.

0:15:510:15:53

-Is it what you expected?

-Oh, my gosh. It's better!

0:15:530:15:56

Absolutely fantastic.

0:15:560:15:58

All right, guys, let's go in and take a look.

0:15:580:16:00

On the inside, the girls have chosen curtains to match the colour scheme

0:16:010:16:05

and loads of accessories to bring the whole look together.

0:16:050:16:09

Oh, and THERE'S Hannah's favourite snaps!

0:16:100:16:13

It's your photographs on the cushions.

0:16:130:16:15

-Yeah.

-That's amazing.

0:16:150:16:17

Look - Big Boo!

0:16:170:16:20

You've done wonders.

0:16:200:16:22

It's got absolutely all their characters in it.

0:16:220:16:25

-I'm over the moon. It's fantastic.

-Dad, are you speechless?

0:16:250:16:28

A little bit.

0:16:280:16:30

Big Boo is not only looking fantastic,

0:16:320:16:34

but Casey and her sisters have saved him from the scrapheap.

0:16:340:16:38

Guys, jump in the car and enjoy your Big Boo transformation.

0:16:400:16:43

I'm so pleased with The Big Boo.

0:16:430:16:46

It's more than I could possibly imagine. The girls worked so hard.

0:16:460:16:49

My favourite part of Big Boo now is the diamonds

0:16:490:16:51

-because I helped design them.

-The colours are growing on me.

0:16:510:16:54

They go together well, don't they?

0:16:540:16:56

I've really enjoyed my Superchargers journey. It was amazing.

0:16:560:17:00

We've had loads of people looking at us in the street,

0:17:070:17:10

so it's really funny.

0:17:100:17:11

HONKS HORN

0:17:110:17:12

When they're staring, they're pointing and you can read their lips

0:17:160:17:20

and tell they're saying, "Big Boo."

0:17:200:17:21

I've been asked how much I'll sell it for and I say there's

0:17:230:17:26

not a price on it. It's absolutely priceless, this car.

0:17:260:17:29

I would never, ever sell it.

0:17:290:17:31

So, luckily Casey's mum and dad seem to love the design.

0:17:380:17:42

Thumbs up all around.

0:17:420:17:43

I think all of our Superchargers have done an amazing job.

0:17:430:17:47

Thank you so much for watching,

0:17:470:17:49

I've had an absolute blast making the series.

0:17:490:17:52

Let us know what you think, and don't forget,

0:17:520:17:54

there's loads more to check out over on the website.

0:17:540:17:57

In going to leave you with some of my favourite supercharging moments.

0:17:570:18:02

Bye-bye.

0:18:020:18:03

Goodbye, old banger!

0:18:050:18:07

We have our own Superchargers app.

0:18:070:18:10

The rest of the family won't be able to see this, it's just between us.

0:18:100:18:13

I'd like to create something that my parents would like, but I'm also

0:18:130:18:16

doing it for me as well.

0:18:160:18:17

I'm very nervous of what's happening over there.

0:18:170:18:19

This car is everything.

0:18:190:18:21

This family without this car, oh, it's just a nightmare.

0:18:210:18:25

There was the one with Ali-A's face on it

0:18:250:18:27

and it was a bit too out there. I'm not that much of a fan!

0:18:270:18:30

It's covered in bows and ribbons.

0:18:300:18:32

I love the colours, they're so me.

0:18:320:18:34

It looks amazing.

0:18:340:18:36

Probably the best day of my life.

0:18:360:18:38

-Yeah?

-Yeah, it was...

-Car heaven right there.

0:18:380:18:41

It was car heaven.

0:18:410:18:42

There's a brand-new scooter there for you.

0:18:480:18:51

-What do you think?

-This is amazing!

0:18:510:18:54

Open the door!

0:18:540:18:56

Ali-A, thanks for helping me through this journey.

0:18:580:19:01

I really can't believe I've designed my own car.

0:19:010:19:03

I can't wait to drive it to the beach,

0:19:030:19:05

get my board and start riding the waves.

0:19:050:19:08

I'm really proud of me and Lucas.

0:19:080:19:10

We are very different, but we've worked together as a team.

0:19:100:19:13

I'm really happy about how unique the car is.

0:19:130:19:16

Nothing is like it.

0:19:160:19:18

I feel very proud of my design.

0:19:180:19:20

I think it looks amazing.

0:19:200:19:21

Thank you for choosing me to be on the Superchargers experience.

0:19:210:19:26

I can't believe it's over already.

0:19:260:19:27

Ali, I cannot thank you enough.

0:19:270:19:30

Casey, Hannah and Lucy are three sisters from Manchester. They love their car, 'The Big Boo', but his insides are very tatty, he's covered in bumps and scratches and the family have been warned that he may not pass his next MOT. Ali-A and his supercharging team step in to save Big Boo from the scrapheap and give him a brand new look.

At Superchargers HQ, Casey and her sisters brainstorm ideas with Ali-A and soon have a disagreement over their favourite colour for the car. Mum and Dad can only listen in horror at their wild ideas, but one thing's for sure: Dad hates all their suggestions! Before the sisters can decide which colour to go for, they take Big Boo to the Superchargers workshop where mechanic Rebecca helps them fix all his problems including replacing his brake pads.
