The Grand Tour is Clarkson, Hammond and May’s new Amazon show

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May's new show for Amazon Prime finally has a name. 'The Grand Tour' will be arriving on the streaming service towards the end of this year.

The former Top Gear presenters signed up to Amazon Prime last July, after leaving the BBC earlier in the year following the corporation's decision not to renew Jeremy Clarkson's contract in the wake of a 'fracas' with a producer on the long-running motoring show.

The trio began drawing up plans for a new car show, and have been shooting at exotic locations all around the world. Until now, however, the new show did not have a name.

After much deliberation, 'The Grand Tour' was chosen partly due to the touring format adopted by the new series, as Clarkson explains "We'll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country. It's sort of a 'grand tour', if you like. So we've decided to call it 'The Grand Tour'."

The show will make its debut on Amazon Prime towards the end of this year. In the meantime motoring fans will be able to enjoy the revamped Top Gear, now fronted by Chris Evans, which begins on BBC Two on May 29th.
