Amazon Prime Video Goes Into Clarkson Overdrive

Jeremy Clarkson fans can stream the latest Grand Tour Presents special from July 30 and look forward to a second season of Clarkson’s Farm in 2022.

Part one of The Grand Tour Presents: Lochdown celebrates the great ’70s American cars that Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond saw in TV shows as kids and asks why these vehicles never usurped Austin Allegros in Britain. Reads the blurb:

At the wheel of a Cadillac Coupe De Ville as driven by Elvis, a Lincoln Continental as driven by Jock Ewing of Dallas fame, and a Buick Riviera as piloted by Clint Eastwood, the three hosts take their iconic Detroit machines on a road trip across the stunning scenery of Scotland. And even though they are on home turf this lockdown journey turns out to be one of their funniest, most action packed and most charming adventures in years.

Along the way they cause chaos on the ancient streets of Edinburgh, enjoy a hilarious, tyre torturing, high octane showdown with Abbie on the racetrack, before heading off to stage an epic Cold War shootout between the worst Soviet and American cars ever made. They also find themselves homeless in the Highlands after a series of housing-based crash bang wallop catastrophes, but still find time to use classic muscle cars to put an infamous Pizza Express journey to the test.

After receiving a text from Mr Wilman, Richard, James and Jeremy modify their cars and head to the Outer Hebrides for one of their toughest challenges yet. At the far reaches of Scotland, they must build a homemade floating bridge across the Hebridean sea, capable of supporting them and their massive cars on a perilous journey to their final destination.

Meanwhile, filming of S2 of Clarkson’s Farm is underway after critics and subscribers alike acclaimed S1’s depiction of Farmer Jeremy coping with the worst farming weather in decades, disobedient animals, unresponsive crops and an unexpected pandemic.

As The Sun quipped: “If you like Clarkson, you’ll love Clarkson’s Farm. If you hate Clarkson, you’ll love it even more.”

AVP promises a “deeper insight” into another year on Diddly Squat Farm as Clarkson aims to diversify under the watchful eye of his no-nonsense team: tractor driver Kaleb, stone wall favourite Gerald, advisor ‘Cheerful’ Charlie, and Jeremy’s better-half-turned-farm-shop-keeper Lisa.
