The Grand Tour: The Trailer


Top Gear fans rejoice — Amazon’s new show The Grand Tour is almost here. The show, featuring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May, premieres November 18th on Amazon Prime. To promote the show, Amazon has released a trailer to whet everyone’s appetites for more car-based shenanigans.

Instead of a normal television studio, the show will have a giant tent that travels from country to country with local audiences attending the taping of each episode. Episodes will stream weekly on Amazon Prime, thanks to a three-year, 36-episode deal signed after the trio (and longtime producer Andy Wilman) departed the BBC after Clarkson punched a producer.

Among other things, the trailer features the world’s top hypercars — the Porsche 918, McLaren P1, and Ferrari LaFerrari — in a shootout on a race track, driving through a desert, on some jet skis, and a tank. Naturally.

If this trailer is any indication, fans of the Clarkson-led Top Gear will be quite pleased with where The Grand Tour will take them.
