Expect another action-packed episode

We’re already two episodes in on the second season of The Grand Tour, and ahead of the third episode, Amazon is doing a bit of teasing on what we can expect on tonight’s show. The star of the trailer is easy to decipher. It’s the Bugatti Chiron, the car Jeremy Clarkson called “the fastest car in the world.”

The Chiron is no slouch when it comes to speed, so it deserves the billing.

While it is curious that Clarkson would refer to the Chiron as the “fastest car in the world” when we now know for a fact that the title belongs to the Koenigsegg Agera RS, I’m going to let it slide because I suspect that the segment was filmed before the Agera RS blasted its way into the record books with a 277.9 mph run last month.

Regardless, the Chiron is no slouch when it comes to speed, so it deserves the billing. Move beyond the introduction of Bugatti’s new hypercar, and we also see a bit of action in the trailer. James May doesn’t get some time with the Chiron, but he does look like he’s having fun with the Kia Stinger. Meanwhile, Richard Hammond appears to be sitting quite comfortably in a chair as he continues to recover from his Rimac Concept_One crash. Not much action for the Hamster in this episode.

We also get to see a bunch of skateboarders racing down a mountain road, presumably in the same segment as May and the Stinger GT. A bunch of other cars also make it to teaser crashing into garbage bins, and it looks like one of the celebrity guests in Celebrity Face-off is none other than Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville. It’s easy to identify him because Paddington the Bear’s riding shotgun during his lap around the Eboladrome. For those who don’t know, Bonneville also starred in the 2014 movie Paddington.

From the looks of it, the third episode is going to be a good one. Be sure to catch it when it drops on Amazon Prime Video tonight.
