For their season finale, The Grand Tour camped in Dubai, UAE, and it wasn’t exactly the hypercar heaven that we were expecting.

However, that doesn’t mean it was less exciting than previous episodes, this being the city where the police drives Bugattis, Ferraris, McLarens, Lamborghinis and Porsches, it had to live up to its name.

Besides the past vs. future race between the Clarkson’s Volkswagen Golf GTI and the May’s BMW i3, which shows why having the ability to refill your tank in no time still beats battery-driven cars, Richard Hammond had the different idea of what viewers would like to see.

This included having part of the highway closed for an epic drag race between the Bugatti Veyron and the Porsche 918 Spyder.

Having proved that the mighty Veyron’s days are numbered in the world of the high-end supercars, the Hamster was then challenged by one of the locals, who came with the heavily modified Nissan Patrol, wanting the piece of Porsche’s hybrid hypercar.

With 1,900 horsepower from the heavily-tuned GT-R engine on tap, this special Patrol is by all means mind-blowing quick, and is it fast enough for the 918 Spyder?
