Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May return for a new season of the world’s greatest show about three middle-aged men rampaging around the world having unusual adventures, driving amazing cars, and engaging in a constant argument about which of them is the biggest idiot. Although it’s also the only show that combines these things so the ‘greatest’ title is pretty much uncontested.
For the opening episode, We are in Switzerland where the presenters compare a Lamborghini Aventador S, a Honda NSX and an all-electric Croatian supercar called the Rimac Concept One in a battle of past, present and future. Richard’s hillclimb takes an unexpected turn. And Ricky Wilson of The Voice UK and David Hasselhoff from America’s Got Talent go head-to-head in the all-new Celebrity Face Off.
We are in New York to find the fastest way from the Big Apple to Niagara Falls in a race featuring Jeremy in the new Ford GT versus James May on public transportation, dragging an injured Richard Hammond. Also, Jeremy tests the Mercedes-AMG GT R at the Eboladrome, cricketer Kevin Pietersen goes against baseball’s Brian Wilson in Celebrity Face Off, and The American test driver is replaced.
In this show Jeremy blasts from the South of France to the Alps and then on to Turin in the 1479 HP Bugatti Chiron, James races the Kia Stinger GT against skateboarders, and Richard tries to relieve the boredom of office lunchtimes with the all-new sport of car park racing. Plus, actor Hugh Bonneville goes against naturalist Casey Anderson to find the world’s fastest person who lives with a bear
In this show The Grand Tour is in Croatia to make a completely unscripted film featuring Jeremy in an Audi TT RS, Richard in an Ariel Nomad, James making a fire engine out of an old Lada, and everyone trying to find a non-existent link between the three. Also in this episode, Richard tests the McLaren 720S and singers Michael Ball and Alfie Boe go head-to-head in Celebrity Face Off.
Jeremy Clarkson makes his own take on a Ken Block-style car skidding video, James May tests the new VW Up GTI at the Eboladrome, and Richard Hammond smashes around Dubai in a high-poweredtank called the Ripsaw. Plus, Preacher star Dominic Cooper goes against comedian Bill Bailey in Celebrity Face Off.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May try to prove that old Jaguars are not only stylish and roguish, but also strong and reliable with a road trip across Colorado featuring a dirt track, a dangerous runway and a brave attempt to go skiing in cars. Plus Luke Evans and Kiefer Sutherland go head-to-head in Celebrity Face Off.
Richard Hammond and James May relive the tedium of getting fuel by inventing a new system for filling up without stopping and Jeremy Clarkson recounts the epic battle between Audi and Lancia during the 1983 world rally championship. Plus, Hammond is at the Eboladrome to test the Lamborghini Huracan Performante and boxer Anthony Joshua goes up against WWE star Bill Goldberg in Celebrity Face Off.
Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond tour Europe in brand new British sports cars built to designs from the 1950s, an undertaking spoilt by the arrival of James May in a modern Honda Civic Type R. Back in the UK, Jeremy is at the track to test the Ford GT, and Celebrity Face Off sees Stewart Copeland from The Police go head-to-head against Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason in a battle of the drummers.
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May attempt to build a road-legal amphibious car with which they can smash a British water speed record. Elsewhere in this show, Jeremy looks back at two 1990s supercars, the Jaguar XJ220 and Bugatti EB 110 SS, and Celebrity Face Off finds the world’s fastest magician as Dynamo goes head-to-head against Penn and Teller.
The Grand Tour tests the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Porsche Macan, and Range Rover Velar in the rugged and challenging landscape of Canada. Back in the UK, Jeremy conducts a legally perilous test of the Tesla Model X and Rory McIlroy takes on Paris Hilton in Celebrity Face Off.
In a mini special The Grand Tour decides to tackle world hunger by transporting fish from the bountiful coast of Mozambique to the impoverished interior using a Nissan pick-up, a Mercedes 200T, and a TVS Star motorcycle. Along the way they encounter mud, accidents, and fish preservation issues on what turns out to be an epic, challenging and extraordinary journey.

Great show! Not just about car specs. Very entertaining, These three hosts just have the perfect chemistry that brings together their very different personalities in a relaxing comedic yet informative-ish presentation with the worlds fastest, most exotic vehicles, as well as beautiful landscapes from breathtaking views of the globe. You'll see places you may never have even heard of, or at least have never been to, that will make you want to see where they head to next, and especially how they get there or don't. Whatever their adventure, if you like beautiful cars, beautiful landscapes, comedic bantering, arguing adventurous racing mishaps, and these three "tools", as they call each other,"The Neandrethal/Gorilla, The Short F1 Driver/Pretty Boy, and Mr. Slow/Dingleberry Handpump, you'll like The Grand Tour! As a long time Top Gear fan, the only thing I don't like is that they didn't get to keep the original show name which will be known in history as the best car show in "the-pause-Jeremy's backyard!"
They're back! A much improved format over the last season, really enjoy the freedom they have to kick things up a notch over top gear, and the new celebrity track is awesome. Really look forward to watching the rest of the season... I have no doubts they will continue to dial in what works, kudos to Amazon and Bezos for picking up the best lot of automotive journalists on the planet!
My only gripes with season 1 were two things: -Celebrities dying pointlessly -Annoying redneck stig
This season remedied that by replacing the celebrity deaths with an AWESOME counter. Celebrities going head to head in a jaguar f-type around the track! The comedy, epicness, and insane stunts are all still here and i'm sure there will be plenty more near-death experiences to come. Didn't see the redneck stig but he could still be there; we'll see as the season progresses. This honestly is the best the trio have ever been!

Well I have to admit, this seasons changes are all for the good. Other than I still think they need more loud Americans on the show (I am still waiting for the phone call from Jeremy) I can't imagine this show being much better. This show alone, this season is worth the cost of my prime membership. Thank you Amazon and thank you Guys. Don't get me wrong, last season was ok, this season is remarkable. By the way, I have never broken a leg crashing after a finish line...

The boys are a bit older but still fantastic! I couldn't understand the firing of Jeremy by BBC. A slap on the wrist would have done the job. Hammond and May were loyal to him and now have a truly great Five Star show! The interplay is just as much fun as ever and the car tests are spot on! I could binge-watch the entire season in one evening!
The boys are back! They made all the changes from the feedback of season 1 and the banter is back and outstanding. Richard and May participate more at the table and it's just the boys doing what they do best! I would love to see Mark Weber contribute but I like the face off bit. Better track this time around they are not trying so hard this time. Can't wait to see what they do in the next 11 weeks!
I am a long time fan of these guys... I know a bit about the logistical nightmare and scheduling headaches the entire crew goes thru to put a show like this together.... With that said, at the end of the day you can see the results for yourself that these people love what they do and we love them for it. Season 2 (so far it seems) has done well to iron out the kinks from season 1. Jeremy, Richard, James and the crew, keep up the great work!

I like this one very much and think some of the changes are a definite improvement. Getting rid of the fat American test driver is a monumental improvement and the celebrity dying bit as well. They're back in beautiful locations and arguing the way they should. I would have like to have heard more details on the cars in the 1st episode, such as price, 0-60 and top speed but for some reason those were left out. It still is my favorite car show ever.
