Jeremy Clarkson has a long history of working in the car industry as a leading journalist, so it’s safe to say that if The Grand Tour presenter likes a car, it’s going to be good. But when he buys a car for himself, there is no better compliment.
The ex-Top Gear presenter has reviewed hundreds of cars in his TV career, but he’s only ever brought home a few. Take a look through the next few slides to found out exactly what cars he took from from his career and why.
MFB Bentley Continental GT From The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt
When The Grand Tour flew to Madagascar to find lost pirate treasure, Jeremy Clarkson modified a Bentley Continental GT with a host of additions to make it the ultimate off-roader. It was lifted with specialised suspension, given larger off-road tyres, a mass of protection, and a snorkel to give it the edge over fellow presenters Richard Hammond and James May.
It turned out to be the best choice of the three. Not only was it able to cross almost anything the Madagascar Special threw at it, but it did it with the utmost comfort.
Jeremy took it home and used it on his Diddly Squat Farm. It was even seen in a couple of episodes. But unfortunately, it had to be taken back to Bentley in Crewe, so doesn’t technically belong to Clarkson anymore, although he wishes it did.
