The Grand Tour Presents: A Massive Hunt
The latest episode of The Grand Tour, A Massive Hunt, follows the trio as they drive over the rough roads of Madagascar with three modified cars as they search for lost pirate treasure. Each of the cars were randomly chosen at the beginning of the episode, and when they realised it involved driving over some of the worst roads in the world, they were modified for such a task.
Clarkson chose a Bentley GT Continental and heavily modified it with larger wheels, longer travelling suspension, and underbody armour, as well as a host of other small changes to improve its off-road abilities. Hammond chose a Ford Focus RS, which he modified with tracks. Unfortunately, while the tracks were a great idea in theory, they ended up being useless. It was so useless in fact, that the Focus RS is the only vehicle to not finish a challenge.
May chose a Caterham, and while it made it with only a change of rear wheels, it was incredibly uncomfortable for the presenter who was soaked in mud by the end of the episode.
In the end, they didn’t find the treasure, but they did blow up a beach, and that always makes me feel better.
