Car Throttle YouTube channel is part of car review website Car Throttle. Its content is generally car reviews, testing and an opinion is given in the end. The site was founded back in 2009 by Adnan Ebrahim since he realised there was no online platform about cars targeted towards the young millennial car enthusiasts. Now the website generates over 30 million page views every month in addition to millions of fans on social media.
Ebrahim is from the UK and has a deep obsession with cars. He created the site when he was an economics student at University College London. He declined an investment banking job so as to turn Car Throttle into a viable business. He bought his first Audi R8 at the age of 25.
