After travelling more than one BILLION miles during production, The Grand Tour finally arrives on our screens in just two weeks on 18 November. But before then, a quick stop-off in Dubai, UAE…
There’s just two weeks to go before Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May make their bickering return to TV in The Grand Tour on 18 November. But before you hurry away to sign up for whatever the hell Amazon Prime actually is, residents of the Middle East might be interested to hear that Clarkson, Hammond and May will be making one final stop-off in Dubai. You can start clamouring for your tickets along with several thousand other petrolheads HERE.
Judging by the destinations the trio have already visited – including South Africa, Lapland, Nashville and Germany among many others – for the inaugural season of The Grand Tour, this could prove to be an impressive outing. In one of the latest video uploads, alongside the teasingly titled ‘Utter Chaos’, the producers walk us through the numbers that make up The Grand Tour, other than the big three themselves. To start with, the production has already travelled more than a billion miles – 1.474 to be precise – during filming. One BILLION. That is absolutely insane. Hardly surprising that the crew have drained nearly 15,000 cups of coffee in that time.
What’s perhaps more interesting though is that the production has already destroyed 27 cars, a pricey stunt that furrows even further into Amazon’s pockets, especially when you consider the $3.2 million shot of the boys driving a Porsche 918 Spyder, LaFerrari and a McLaren P1 on-track, the most expensive opening scene ever to broadcast on TV. No confirmation yet though as to whether this figure includes caravans….
