"Top Gear" fans among you were undoubtedly saddened when the original hosts left the show last year. But that's what happens when a star punches a producer. Now Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are coming back with a new car-based show, "The Grand Tour," lavishly financed by Amazon. And the trailer looks pretty freaking amazing:

The Sun reports that the opening scene of the first episode will be "the most expensive ever seen on TV, costing £2.5 million (USD $3 million and change) just to shoot that scene alone!
Shot in the Californian desert, it features 150 cars, 2,000 "petrolheads", acrobats, stilt-walkers and six jet planes. Clarkson…Hammond and…May sped across the Lucerne Valley in customised red, white and blue Ford Mustangs. The trio were followed by £20million worth of cars, including a Bugatti Veyron and Rolls-Royce.
A source said: "Nothing remotely like it has been seen before."
We'll have to wait until next month to see it; Amazon is launching the series on Amazon Prime on November 18th. Sadly, there will be no binge-watching option, as they'll subsequently roll the episodes out on a weekly basis.
