In an older episode of Guy Martin's TV show, he tries to build his own robotic Ford Transit. He also wants to learn more about the Tesla Model S and its artificial intelligence, Tesla Autopilot, and features in general. Martin asks, "What's fastest, man or machine?"
Martin pits the futuristic, electric "robot" car against his own, customized, turbocharged Volvo. It's a 1967 model that he once claimed was the fastest car in the UK. Is it faster than a Tesla though?
If you're not familiar with Guy Martin, he hails from Britain. He spends his time racing motorcycles and working on big trucks. In addition, Martin has become a popular TV show host with a focus on engineering projects.
