Survival of the Fattest
This was by far one of the best episodes of The Grand Tour to date, and this was for one very special reason. The presenters arrived in Mongolia and were straight away challenged to build their own car in order for them to return to civilisation. The car they built was based on a Land Rover, and Hammond and May had to put up with Clarkson’s love of hammers while surviving on rations of food and water while they put it together. Finally, once they’d built the off-roader, they named it John, and since then it has been a legendary part of The Grand Tour’s short but rich history.
Posting on Twitter, Clarkson wrote: “I really hope you enjoy the Grand Tour Mongolia Special as much as I hated making it.”
The episode was full of incredible tracking shots, hilarious moments between the trio and their trusty John, and a real story, making it one of the greatest episodes yet.
