There we have it, the first clip of Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond’s The Grand Tour.

As you may have suspected, the Amazon Prime motoring show looks and feels exactly the same as old Top Gear.

The 30-second clip sees the three presenters standing around as a broken Range Rover passes by, making quite horrible noises as it passes.

Notably, the trio’s chemistry has gone nowhere, sharing jokes and laughing as May points out that it's a rental car.

“It’s called gentle rental. ‘You’re not taking it off road, are you?’ No, no, no…” Clarkson says. Hammond interjects: “No, No, No... A bit...”

Earlier this week the first official images from The Grand Tour were released, showing the trio presenting in South Africa against a magnificent backdrop.

Meanwhile, Chris Evans has dropped out of the BBC’s Top Gear, something May was reportedly ‘chuffed’ about, something Clarkson denied.

Tickets for The Grand Tour’s UK stop are currently being raffled off by Amazon.
