An Aston, A Bentley And A BMW Walk Into Azerbaijan… With The Grand Tour

This upcoming Friday you will be able to catch episode 11 of The Grand Tour’s third season, with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May taking their talents to Eastern Europe.

Their travels will take them from the shores of the Black Sea in Georgia, to the Caspian Sea in Azerbaijan, for a 1,000 km trip behind the wheel of the Aston Martin DBS, the Bentley Continental GT and the BMW M850i Coupe.

Their goal? To “find the best car for someone who lives in Georgia but really craves freshwater fish.” Don’t expect to get what any of that’s about until you have seen the episode though – that’s usually how it goes with these lads.

In their adventures, they’ll experience strange bathing regimes, stunning monuments and a very exciting way to check track performance. Eventually, they’ll arrive in the capital city of Baku to have a race. Yep, it’s the same place that holds a Formula 1 street circuit, which has only been in service these past two years.

While we’ll need to wait until Friday to find out which is quicker, on paper, the Aston should win that race. It’s faster to 100 km/h (62 mph) than the Conti or the M850i (3.4 sec vs 3.7 sec for the other two), and it also has a higher top speed. But hey, this is the Clarskon and Friends Show, so you never know what’s gonna happen.`

Episode 11 of The Grand Tour Series 3 will stream on Amazon Prime Video this Friday, March 22nd.

    The charisma of these three hosts has long since expired. They’ve become too rich and removed to even understand what makes the modern viewer excited about cars. I used to love Top Gear, everyone did and the BBC was right to realize it was time to move on.
    If these 3 really want to remain in the “biz”, how about launching something with cars thats completely new and different to their old-hat routine they keep repeating?

      They are 3 old ladies that need t retire.
      I also think it would help if they introduced younger presenters with repeat appearances.

      No one cares, we just want to see them to do something in someplace new. Maybe they should branch out into other thing than cars.
