The Grand Tour is Back on 8/12/17

The Grand Tour just revealed the release date for the next series of the Amazon Prime show. Coming out on the 8th of December the release date was accompanied by a new trailer for the show, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect to come into the new year.

Top Gear 1The Grand Tour has had a much better run than Top Gear has since the ‘fracas’ Top Gear has had two series since the trios departure and is only just finding its legs. The Grand Tour disappointed some with its debut series but has had a lot more time to rejigger the show into something the fans want to see. The new trailer shows us that the trio seem to be going strong with the cheap car challenges the public loved when they were on Top Gear. Clarkson Hammond and May appear to be taking three Jaguars down a ski slope with terror from all three being the result. We also see them go to Africa in what appears to be May in a Mercedes estate, Clarkson in a Nissan SUV and Hammond on a motorbike.

Top Gear Bugatti ChironWhat troubles me is that we also see a lot of stuff that we’ve seen before, ie: a Bugatti Chiron review from Clarkson (we saw Chris Harris review it on Top Gear) and a review of the Arial Nomad (which we also saw on Top Gear). The trailer also shows them driving an amphibious car, which, they’ve done before themselves, and the new Top Gear has done it as well. From what I can tell the schedule for the show means that when they review a car its often months if not years after someone else has beaten them to it.

Rimac Concept oneWe also get a view of the trio testing the Honda NSX, Lamborghini Aventador and the Rimac Concept One. We don’t see any of Hammond’s crash in the Rimac but its unlikely that they will try to avoid it as with Hammonds much more serious Jet car crash they went through it in extreme detail. Well just over a month to go to see whats what, see you on the 8th of December with a review of the first episode.

What do you think of the new Grand Tour trailer, let us know in the commets.
