The Grand Tour boss posts first look at Scotland special in teaser vid as Top Gear wraps shortest series ever

THE hit Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour, revealed many picturesque parts of Scotland in its new teaser trailer.

The Grand Tour producer, Andy Wilman, took to Instagram and released a teaser video for the much-anticipated Scotland special.

However, presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May do not feature.

Instead, the teaser showcased stunning scenic shots in a retro-style trailer.

Compelled viewers saw the iconic red Forth Bridge, which is located west of Edinburgh and known as the world’s first major steel structure.

This was followed by beautiful cityscapes and footage of idyllic countryside. 

Paired with suspenseful music, we also saw snippets of the Edinburgh city centre and Queensferry Crossing.

Fans shared their excitement as they commented on the video. One fan said, “Great cinematic scale and monumental performances.”

Another exclaimed, “really can’t wait!”

One fan admired, “Now that’s what I call a Grand tease! Can’t wait for this!!”

The Scottish special is set to launch later this year. The series was filmed in between lockdowns in 2020. 

Former Top Gear, presenter James May, recently spoke out about the reason behind his “well buff” body in lockdown. He said it was down to not being around The Grand Tour co-hosts Jeremy and Richard.

James explained he’s managed to get fit on his bicycle during the pandemic mainly due to not having them around and ridiculing him for doing so.

Meanwhile, BBC's Top Gear has wrapped up its 30th and shortest ever series.

Executive producers, Clare Pizey and Alex Renton told IOL how they were “worried” about the effect the pandemic has had while filming the latest series, especiallywith it being winter in the UK and not being able to go abroad.”

Clare said, “But I can’t believe what we’ve managed to do, I genuinely think it’s a really strong series. You don’t have to go abroad to get the sense of adventure and beautiful landscapes, so we’ve been to stunning places like the Lake District and the Scottish Highlands – and we were so grateful to be working again.”

Talking about how Top Gear is a family show, Alex added,Top Gear has always been a balancing act. It started as more of a traditional car show and then became far more entertainment-based.

“We established that there needs to be proper car journalism in there for the petrol heads, but also fun for the whole family who wants to have an enjoyable watch on a Sunday evening. It is an important part of the show’s make up that we deliver both.”

You can watch the latest season of Top Gear on BBC iPlayer. Previous instalments of The Grand Tour are available to watch on Amazon.
