- The boys head to Chongqing with three second-hand executive limos
- Jeremy Clarkson tests the Honqi L5 Limousine
- Richard Hammond power tests the NIO EP9 electric supercar at the Eboladrome
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are in the vast Chinese megacity of Chongqing with some valuable consumer advice for business people across all of China; don’t spend huge sums on a brand new luxury car when you could pop over to Europe, buy a second-hand executive limo and ship it home for a fraction of the cost.
To prove their point, the three hosts tour the city and beyond in an old Mercedes S600, an ageing BMW 750iL and a 20-year-old Cadillac STS, encountering a door empire, a sinister camera network, a flame spitting drone and a range of in-car entertainment features along the way.
Chongqing is regarded by many as the Detroit of China, and sources suggest that the boys will be filming a piece investigating the industrial development of the city’s car industry. Clarkson will also be testing the Hongqi L5 Limousine – something he was very much looking forward to.
Also in this show, The Grand Tour discovers an ultra-fast electric supercar called the NIO EP9 and foolishly gives the job of testing it to Richard Hammond.
