First trailer for Top Gear trio’s Amazon Grand Tour unveiled

First trailer for Top Gear trio’s Amazon Grand Tour unveiled
Former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond are up to their old tricks in the first trailer released for their new show The Grand Tour.

To be screened on demand by Amazon Prime, the first episode of The Grand Tour will be released on November 18, with each installment in the series said to have cost around £4.5 million.

And it is no wonder, as the show’s first official trailer shows Clarkson, May and Hammond tinkering with hypercars such as the Ferrari LaFerrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder.

As revealed in the teaser, adding to this already impressive line-up will be an Aston Martin Vulcan, an Alfa Romeo 4C Spider and the latest Mazda MX-5 Miata.

But it is not just fast and furious motors that the presenters will be getting their hands on.

The trailer also shows the team travelling by land, sea and air on jet skis, helicopters and even a tank that is seen to blow up a moving van. 

In more unusual scenes, the trio are shown racing camels and a golf buggy camouflaged with foliage.

Clarkson and pals will also be living up to the show’s title, jetting off to some exotic locations that appear to include Egypt, Italian town squares and a dramatic desert landscape.

In contrast to the studio in which Top Gear was filmed, The Grand Tour will be staged in a huge tent that will allow the show to change locations each week.

Previous reports have suggested the tent has been spotted in Johannesburg, while it has also been suggested that at least part of the first episode will be filmed in California.

There are signs that all the travelling and high-speed racing may have taken their toll on at least one the presenters though.

James May is shown to have fractured his arm in a development that prompts a great deal of typically Top Gear banter from Hammond and Clarkson.

Once the first episode has been aired next month, subsequent shows will follow every Friday for the next 12 weeks.

All three presenters have signed up to an agreement with Amazon to make 12 shows a year for the next three years.
