The Grand Tour Season 2: Sneak Peak Trailer

Debuting on Amazon Prime Day, the sneak peak trailer for The Grand Tour: Season 2, is here! The trailer which describes the show as;

the world’s greatest show about three middle-aged men rampaging around the world having unusual adventures, driving amazing cars, and engaging in a constant argument about which of them is the biggest idiot.”

showcases some very exciting looking clips which leaves the automotive community around the world with a lot to look forward too.

Examining the trailer we see a bit of something for everyone. From some sort of tank crashing through walls, to the already infamous Rimac that Richard Hammond had his recent crash in during a hill climb event, which ended in a fiery blaze, to a few other high level exotics such as the AMG GT, Mclaren 720S, and Bugatti Chiron.

While the last season of Top Gear (U.K.) received abysmal ratings, per IMDB, with an average of just over 2 out of 10, the premier season of The Grand Tour soared to the number one spot for auto and comedy enthusiasts, with nearly a 9 out of 10 rating, on the same scale.*

If the trailer is any indication, would seem that the Amazon and the trio is aiming to hold on to their top spot this season as well. There’s obviously going to be a wide variety of classic hi-jinks, wacky adventures, and awesome cars which, undoubtedly, will leave most people happy.

The New McLaren Commercial Hits All The Right Chords

Last week McLaren dropped this amazing, tear-jerker, of a commercial. Aside from featuring the breathtaking new McLaren 720S, the commercial also features a timeless soundbite from the legendary Ayrton Senna and get this, the car is driven by Senna’s very own nephew who ends the commercial with a message to his uncle. If that doesn’t have your heart strings pulling already, just wait until you watch the commercial.

Skateboarder Deals Street Justice to Stop Sign Running Mclaren

I don’t know who is more in the wrong here, but it sure hurts to see such a beautiful car get smashed up this way. From what you can see and hear in the video, it appears that the Mclaren coasts through a stop sign, possibly almost hitting or at least startling a skateboarder who then proceeds to take some street justice to the windshield of the Mclaren. The skateboarder then makes a smart decision to run for it as the passenger of the Mclaren takes pursuit. This windshield is surely several grand to replace, but that is nothing compared to the possible medical bills of running someone over. Definitely a lose loser situation it would seem. Take a hint from the video and pay attention when driving, follow those traffic laws, and look both ways before you cross the street. Oh, and also never film vertically…
