The Grand Tour: Series 2 Episode 9 Preview – ‘Breaking, badly’


We’re already eight episodes into The Grand Tour Series 2. So far, the boys have taken us to Switzerland, Mallorca, France, Italy, Croatia, Dubai, and The United States. So where are they off to for Episode 9?

Well next week, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to set a new British water speed record for amphibious cars.

A staggering 85 percent of all people who try to break records on water are killed but this doesn’t put off Clarkson, Hammond and May as they set about building their own road legal machine from an unholy union of car, boat and jet engine and then use it to spear across the choppy waters of a vast lake during something called “Coniston Speed Week”.

Also in this show, and something which will make one of our readers very happy indeed – Jeremy makes a nostalgic trip to the Eboladrome to drive a pair of incredible supercars from the early 1990s, the Jaguar XJ220 and the Bugatti EB 110 Super Sport.

  1. But on a separate note I’m guessing next weeks episode will have the Tesla Model X, the SUV’s in Canada and Paris Hilton vs Rory McIlroy.

  2. I am not sure at this stage, but odds are it might at least be an extended-length episode. I’ll of course feed you all the information as soon as I have it.

  3. I bet if they threw a McLaren F1 in the Bug / Jag mix it would annihilate all of them. Still, should be a good film, I love the Jag.

    • From what I can work out the XJ220 cost £135,000 more than the EB 110 back in the day (£420k vs £285k) so it’ll be interesting to see what Clarkson thinks of them. In comparison, the F1 cost £635,000!
