Jeremy Clarkson's 'The Grand Tour' Has A Very Expensive Secret
In just the first scene of The Grand Tour, producers spent an amazing £2.5 million to introduce the show. We can't wait to see this!
Shot in the Californian desert, it reportedly features no less than 150 cars, 2,000 petrol heads, acrobats, stilt walkers and six jet planes. It now makes total sense that it's reportedly the most expensive opening sequence in British TV history.
That's one way to react to Top Gear, which has been left in a rather old-fashioned mess since the departure of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as hosts. But what about that high-five...
The new The Grand Tour show will be broadcast on Amazon Prime, which means anyone without a subscription, or compatible streaming device, won't be able to tune in to witness every motor head's dream.

In the fresh show, Clarkson, Hammond and May sped across the Lucerne Valley in customised red, white and blue Ford Mustangs.
They were apparently followed by cars to the value of £20 million, including a Bugatti Veyron and a Rolls-Royce. According to a source: "Nothing remotely like it has been seen before." Can. Not. Wait.
The Grand Tour launches on Amazon Prime on November 18th, which is 18 months after Clarkson left the BBC.
The show will make Clarkson Britain's highest paid TV star with a reported £10 million salary, as reported by The Sun.
It's a lot of money but it will 100 percent be worth it. Can it be November 18th now, please?
