Watch the trailer for The Grand Tour Madagascar Special, available in December
The Grand Tour will return on December 18, Amazon Prime Video announced, with a new trailer for “The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt,” the second feature-length special in what is technically The Grand Tour season 4. In it, the former Top Gear trio of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will meet on the African island of Madagascar, where they will hold the treads of their car tanks while searching for a “pirate treasure”, as Hammon says in the new Grand Trailer on tour.
The minute and a half long trailer for The Grand Tour season 4 episode 2 “A Massive Hunt” begins on the French island of Reunion, located in the Indian Ocean east of Madagascar. Clarkson, Hammond and May do an endurance race on a coastal highway; officially, it is La Nouvelle Route du Littoral, which in French means New Coastal Road, that is promoted to be the most expensive road project in France with an estimated cost of 1.66 billion euros (approximately 14.630 million rupees)
Soon after, they arrive in Madagascar and outfit their cars with tank tracks that give them much more ground clearance and the ability to move on any terrain. Well, in theory anyway. As the trailer for episode 2 of season 4 of The Grand Tour shows, the tank tracks also have their problems, as Hammond gets stuck on the beach. The trailer also gives us a look at the fun stunts the trio enjoy doing, including scanning for mines or driving at top speed while bombs explode in the background.
After airing 38 episodes in three seasons between 2016 and 2019, The Grand Tour has really slowed down its production as it has moved away from the open-air, hybrid studio format. Amazon has expanded its deal with the trio, which includes new solo shows (Our Man in Japan for May and I Bought A Farm for Clarkson). Beginning with season 4, The Grand Tour is now only about feature film specials. The first one, “Seamen”, set in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, aired in December last year.
The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt premieres December 18 on Prime Video worldwide.
