This episode was brilliant. Miles better than the first which was already awesome. But that Aston is plain stupid. 1.8mil and all you get is 0-60 in 2.9 and 208 mph.

There is no doubt these guys know how to make a beautiful car film. Stunning stuff. Loved the fun film like the Tom Cruise movie… you know, Cocktail. Nothing scripted here… no sir, just factual entertainment. 🙂 I’m not sure about the celebrity brain squeeze bit… it has been 2 episodes and it already feels old and tired.

The problem with the episode is episode 1 . It was never going to be as good as the premier we had last week but sure it will pick up again next time

Look at this screenshot from The Trailer and Episode02 of The Grand Tour
So what we see on the screen is not actually there! It’s just “After Effects”
