Watch the trailer for Clarkson, Hammond, and May’s ‘The Grand Tour’

The Grand Tour | Season 1 | Official Trailer
If you didn’t already know it, a new show by the former Top Gear folks launches exclusively on Amazon Prime on November 18.

Judging by the high-octane trailer released on Thursday, The Grand Tour should more than satisfy fans of the old show, with Clarkson, Hammond, and May apparently continuing on from exactly where they left off.

The big-budget, lavishly produced show will follow the boys across four continents in what May describes as “a road trip in very exotic cars.” But there’ll also be supercars, helicopters, speed boats, tanks, Jet Skis, and even a camel – one that refuses to cooperate with Clarkson, by the looks of it.

It all looks very cinematic, and with pretty much the same former-Top-Gear brains running the show – including executive producer and long-time Clarkson collaborator Andy Wilman – it’s a safe bet gearheads will be in for quite a ride.

Just like their old Top Gear show, The Grand Tour will include pre-recorded segments shot around the world as well as studio-based sequences. With their old show, the studio slots were filmed inside an adapted aircraft hangar near London, but The Grand Tour will take with it a giant tent so local fans of the lads will have a chance to be a part of the audience.

Amazon secured the services of the British trio after the BBC fired Clarkson from Top Gear last year following a bust-up with one of the show’s producers. Amazon boss Jeff Bezos said the deal to nab the lads was “very, very, very expensive,” with some reports claiming the e-commerce giant paid as much as $250 million for 36 episodes over three years.

We’ll soon get to see if it was money well spent.

"Holy mother of God."

Those are the words uttered by Jeremy Clarkson at the very start of the trailer for the second season of The Grand Tour car show. Clarkson is behind the wheel of a Jag, staring down at a snow-covered and very steep ski run. One that he's about to drive down. No wonder he said, "Holy mother of God."

Just a few months after suffering injuries in a motorcycle crash while filming for The Grand Tour, and 11 years after a famously spectacular high-speed dragster smash that very nearly took his life, on June 10 former Top Gear presenter Richard Hammond went and did it again, and now we have Hammond's own perspective on the crash.

Hammond -- who confirmed he'd survived his latest auto disaster by telling fans, "I'm not dead" -- was driving a million-dollar Rimac Concept One electric supercar in the Swiss town of St. Gallen on Saturday during a shoot for Amazon Prime's The Grand Tour.

Van travel and van camping have always been popular, but Airstream's Interstate Grand Tour EXT sets a high bar for over-the-road luxury travel without jumping way up in size to a much larger Class-A motor home. The only compromise you'll have to make with the Grand Tour EXT is when you end your journey to stay someplace else. Maybe you'll decide not to switch.
