The Grand Tour is Title of Former Top Gear Hosts' Show on Amazon Prime

Amazon announced the title of the new car show hosted by Jeremy Clarkson.

Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond's new show on Amazon Prime will be titled The Grand Tour. The former Top Gear hosts are restarting on streaming video with their new show competing with BBC's Top Gear.

The Grand Tour will launch this Fall on Amazon Prime. Clarkson and his co-hosts will tour the world in the show. They carry a giant tent with them that will be set up in different countries during the season. There will be 12 episodes including a special Christmas episode.

Clarkson of course already found a great way to shorten the title that is car related. He calls it GT in short.

The ousted Top Gear host has signed with Amazon in July of last year. Amazon apparently paid the most.

Jeremy Clarkson, the original lead presenter of the Top Gear lineup was dropped in March after he was found guilty of punching a producer on location.

Top Gear was originally started in 1977 as a conventional motoring program. It gained a widespread popularity after its relaunch in 2002 when it was presented by Jeremy Clarkson in a quirky and humorous way. The show features various segments all related to motor vehicles especially cars.

Top Gear has more than 350 million viewers around the world, which makes it one of most popular TV shows of the planet.
