In an attempt to set a British water speed record for amphibious cars, Clarkson, Hammond and May will show off a very quirky road legal machine on The Grand Tour this Friday.
The build is actually part car, part boat, part jet engine and it should provide the hosts with plenty of challenges as they look to defy some really bad odds regarding maritime records.
Afterwards, Jeremy Clarkson will take to the Eboladrome to compare the Jaguar XJ220 and the Bugatti EB110 Super Sport in a battle of early 1990s 3.5-liter turbocharged supercars. However, whereas the XJ220 was powered by a 3.5-liter twin turbo V6, the more powerful EB110 SS had a 3.5-liter quad-turbo V12.
On paper, they had very similar performance figures, so it will be quite interesting to see what Clarkson makes of those 20-year old supercars. As for the Celebrity Face Off segment, it will feature magicians Dynamo and the famous duo of Penn & Teller.
Episode 9 of The Grand Tour’s second season will be available on Amazon Prime Video this Friday, February 2nd.
