The first season of The Grand Tour has been hit or miss. Clarkson, Hammond, and May have at times recaptured the old magic that made Top Gear the global phenomenon.
Other times it seems as if the lack of oversight from Amazon and a huge budget have been detrimental. One litmus test for the show will be its first special, and which is set in Namibia and will feature the trio trekking across the African country in the three dune buggies.
The guys have been to Africa before, traveling to Botswana for the Top Gear special. Funnily enough, that special actually ended at the border of Namibia and Botswana.
Perhaps the setting of this special is the subtle dig at the BBC? The premise of the episode is simple enough. And executive producer Andy Wilman, also formerly of Top Gear, thinks beach buggies are awful.
To prove him wrong, Jeremy Clarkson, Hammond and May build their own buggies and set out to drive across the West African nation. After watching the trailer we are a bit conflicted.
The idea of the guys tearing up vast stretches of sand in the beach buggies sounds awesome. But there are more laughs and crazy situations to get into behind the wheel of normal cars.
