The Grand Tour Is Back, Watch Hammond And May Come Up With New Slogans

The third season of The Grand Tour was released on Amazon Prime Video earlier today and the online retailer has released a new promotional video to celebrate its return.

In the clip, James May and Richard Hammond discuss how to market the new season as Jeremy Clarkson is in Sweden racing a Lamborghini around a frozen lake. In his absence, the pair discuss new slogans for the third season but May takes everything a bit too literally.

Clarkson calls a few minutes later to see how the duo is doing and reveals he’s driving a hatchback over the Alps. The two then continue discussing lackluster ideas including “The Grand Tour: A Car Show on Amazon.”

Clarkson then interrupts again and says he’s at the airport driving his suitcase, but he’s hit something. The duo then come up with this year’s slogan of “#AmazonSHitCarShow” because apparently #JustDifferentEnoughFromTopGearNotToBeSued wasn’t quite as catchy.

While we haven’t checked out the third season quite yet, the first episode was released earlier today and it’s called Motown Funk. It sees the trio travel to Detroit to test drive “three highly tuned muscle cars on the deserted streets of this once-great motor city.” That’s pretty vague, but we already know the three will visit the abandoned Packard plant and compare the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon to the Ford Mustang RTR Spec 3 and Chevrolet Camaro-based Hennessey Exorcist. The first episode will also feature Clarkson’s review of the McLaren Senna.

A previous teaser has revealed future episodes will show Hammond drive across a wooden bridge, Clarkson driving an older Jeep Wrangler and May playing the bagpipes. It also showed a glimpse of a Lamborghini Urus as well as some German pickups including the Mercedes X-Class and Volkswagen Amarok.

    no celebrities this time

    I bought a Prime membership just to watch these guys. I’m sorry to say that the quality of the show – as evidenced by yesterday’s – has gone way down. i found myself fast forwarding through most of it. The jokes aren’t funny, everything is super scripted with not an iota of spontaneity.

    • GobbleUp

      Completely agree….tired jokes, boring skits, bad acting.
      Pathetic show.

      • Loquacious Borborygmus

        That’s how I felt about it 12 years ago.

  • GobbleUp

    Says nobody.

  • ErnieB

    Loving the RTR look

  • Six Thousand Times

    I was glad to see it prove the Mustang the winner and still champeen. The bit where Hammond had to remake that POS Dodge into a drag car was also good fun. Somebody should have run over a bearded hipster on his bicycle, though. Trick missed. However, good show.

    Top Gear was already tired when these three clowns left. The latest GT series is barrel-scralingly awful.
