‘Chinese food for thought’ – The Grand Tour Series 3 Episode 6 Preview

In the sixth episode of The Grand Tour Series 3, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in the vast Chinese megacity of Chongqing with some valuable consumer advice for business people across all of China; don’t spend huge sums on a brand new luxury car when you could pop over to Europe, buy a second-hand executive limo and ship it home for a fraction of the cost.

To prove their point, the three hosts tour the city and beyond in an old Mercedes S600, an ageing BMW 750iL and a 20-year-old Cadillac STS, encountering a door empire, a sinister camera network, a flame spitting drone and a range of in-car entertainment features along the way.

Chongqing is regarded by many as the Detroit of China, and sources suggest that the boys will be filming a piece investigating the industrial development of the city’s car industry. Clarkson will also be testing the Hongqi L5 Limousine – something he was very much looking forward to.

Also in this show, The Grand Tour discovers an ultra-fast electric supercar called the NIO EP9 and foolishly gives the job of testing it to Richard Hammond.

How do I stop info, on Top Gear. To me the show has reached its “Use By Date” I originally signed up to Prime Video to able to watch it. I have only watched about 4 episodes, it’s like watching porn(variations on a theme) you can only spin wheels and corner a car in so many ways. Exotic cars are nice, but the one thing no one ever talks about is their maintaining costs, which is the scariest part of owning one

About NIO EP9,it use the Williams Advance Engineering tech originally for concept version of Jag C-X75,thus this car is British rather than Chinese
