With only two weeks left before The Grand Tour, to be premiered as an Amazon Prime Exclusive, starring Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, the show released a few figures on what it took to film the first season. Unsurprisingly though, the numbers are unbelievably high.
The 15-second video, which has a slew of random images, reveals that 27 cars were destroyed, 14,951 cups of coffee were ingested, and according to Clarkson 1,474,546,320 miles were driven. Clarkson, as we’ve all come to know, isn’t a stranger to making exaggerated claims. So while we believe that the team destroyed 27 cars, we’re having trouble grasping the other two. Because one, that’s a lot of miles and secondly, that’s a whole lot of coffee.
The Grand Tour is set to start on November 18th on Amazon Prime and, as the first trailer pointed out, has the gang driving incredibly fast cars, traveling to exotic locations, and going on random adventures. In other words, it should be just like the old Top Gear. One can hardly wait.
