Hosted by popular comedian Tim Allen, Top Speed enters the lives of uncommonly fast individuals who take daring risks, go to new extremes and push the science of speed in the never-ending pursuit of human excellence and ultimate velocity. Appearing in the film are sprinter Marion Jones, mountain biking champ Marla Streb, rising racecar sensation Lucas Luhr, high performance automobile designer Stephen Murkett, and blind eleven year-old junior bobsledder Blaise Bryant. Audiences go behind-the-scenes of a high-performance race-car development center where Porsche automobiles are created, exploring the rarified territory where speed and style meet.
