After Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May moved on from Top Gear, everyone wondered what their next adventure would take them. Happily, The Grand Tour was soon announced by Amazon and was very similar to Top Gear in many ways. The main difference was the size of the budget given to the trio to spend per episode.
Thanks to this large amount of money, Clarkson, Hammond, and May were able to produce more exciting and bigger scale episodes than they had ever done before. This resulted in special episodes becoming more and more frequent. Indeed, the fourth season of The Grand Tour will consist only of specials. To celebrate this, we’ve ranked all of the specials so far.
