Our next look at the old trio’s new tomfoolery

Amazon released the first official trailer for The Grand Tour, the highly-anticipated new show starring the ex-BBC Top Gear trio comprised of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May.

The trailer gives us the latest glimpse of what we can expect from the new show. From the shown scenes, we can expect the same chemistry the old boys have given us with a new flavor. It seems to take on a style more akin to Top Gear’s old Ultimate Road Trip episodes, which were less about challenges and more about adventure and cars.

We see a fractured arm, exotic cars, insults, exotic locations, a mob, the big-three hypercars, a minor fire, and banter. It seems to be a version of older, less politically-correct Top Gear unleashed with a much bigger budget. Lots of cars, lots of immature humor, but all topped with a refreshing citrus twist. Of course, we should stop comparing the two shows because they both say they are non-competing, totally separate shows. (Really though, who isn't comparing them?) 

The new show premieres November 18 on Amazon Prime with a new episode available to stream each week for a total of 12 episodes for the first season. Two more seasons of The Grand Tour are guaranteed by Amazon, also with 12 episodes each. Check out the video below to see the action.
