If Top Gear's new line-up didn't satisfy your cravings, fear not: Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are returning to TV screens. 

The Grand Tour takes the trio to their new home on Amazon Prime; offering essentially the exact same Top Gear content, but just on a flashier, internationally-flavoured budget. Indeed, reports claim the series' opening cost a whopping £2.5 million; with the gang driving Ford Mustangs through the desert followed by "150 cars, 2,000 ‘petrolheads’, acrobats, stilt-walkers and six jet planes."

The show swaps out Top Gear's usual television studio for a ginormous, travelling tent which will travel across the world to host local audiences for each episode. 

The majority of the first episode was filmed earlier this year in Johannesburg, South Africa, with further episodes taking place in Italy, California, and - of course - the UK.

Episodes will be released on a weekly basis on Amazon Prime; with the network signing a three-year, 36-episode deal with the trio after Clarkson's depature from the BBC. Various clips for the series have already made their way online, though this marks the first full trailer for the show. 

The Grand Tour premieres on Amazon Prime on 18 November.
