Looks great. Any idea if this will be shown on any other platform apart from Amazon Prime?

That does look really good!

If it was on normal TV, then I would watch it, unlike the recent Chris Evans' Top Gear.

The BBC must be kicking themselves!

Wouldn't have thought so. TG was getting stale on BBC and limited. Amazon have the £££ to push it forward.

However, according to a recent report from Business Insider, it might not be an Amazon Prime exclusive forever. Sources have apparently revealed that there's a secret arrangement in place between Amazon and the ex-Top Gear team that will enable Amazon to sell the rights of the show to TV networks and broadcasters.
But this is most likely so they can do the following:

If this was the case, it would mean that Amazon would be able to get The Grand Tour to the widest possible audience, without undercutting the value of the Prime Video subscription for customers in the few countries where the service is currently available.

Trailer looks great, any lingering thoughts that they might not have been able to make it work again have been banished, roll on November.

Was there really any doubt? James only had to put up a video of Jeremy putting a box together and that got 1.8 million views. Thats not far off the viewing figures of a Top Gear episode*

Indeed, that box video was way more entertaining.

Looks great, as I said when they brought in Chris Evans, put the three together, they just work, you couldn't manufacture it. You can mess around with presenters for years, but sometimes it just works.
