It will take more than a global pandemic to stop Clarkson, Hammond and May from hitting the road!
The former Top Gear trio may have aborted more exotic plans, but they’ve been busy filming specials in the UK and The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown is streaming now on Amazon Prime Video.
Zooming in to Nova from home, James May told PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe, “This is a double bill with a big gap in the middle!”
The program finds the chaps in an extremely wet Scotland, heading across the Highlands in classic 70s American cars: at the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Jock Ewing of Dallas fame, and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood.
Along the way they cause chaos on the ancient streets of Edinburgh, enjoy a hilarious, tyre torturing, high octane showdown with Abbie on the racetrack, before heading off to stage an epic Cold War shootout between the worst Soviet and American cars ever made.
Richard, James and Jeremy modify their cars and head to the Outer Hebrides for one of their toughest challenges yet. At the far reaches of Scotland, they must build a homemade floating bridge across the Hebridean sea, capable of supporting them and their massive cars on a perilous journey to their final destination.
Along the way they’ll discover exactly why these beautiful vehicles never became a hit in the UK, try out some deep fried delicacies and – of course – Richard Hammond has an accident.
