The Grand Tour: Season 2, Episode 9: Breaking Badly

Amazon has shared the official teaser trailer for this week’s episode of The Grand Tour, and it features the return of amphibious cars, iconic supercars, and the world’s fastest magician. It’s all coming up this Friday in the ninth episode of The Grand Tour’s second season, appropriately called ‘Breaking Badly.’

This week, the trio attempts to set a new British water speed record for amphibious cars. Whilst a staggering 85% of all people who try to break records on water are killed, this doesn’t put off hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May as they set about building their own road legal machine from an unholy union of car, boat and jet engine and then use it to spear across the choppy waters of a vast lake during something called the ‘Coniston Speed Week.’

There's also a wonderful mention of "sausage" during the challenge. Meanwhile, Jeremy Clarkson also makes a nostalgic trip to the Eboladrome to drive a pair of incredible classic supercars from the early 1990s, the Jaguar XJ220 and the Bugatti EB 110 Super Sport. Plus, Celebrity Face-Off finds the world’s fastest magician as Dynamo goes head-to-head against Penn & Teller.

Overall, it should be another fantastic episode of The Grand Tour, with this latest teaser being my favourite of the episodic trailers so far! Episode 9 of The Grand Tour’s second season hits Amazon Prime Video on Friday, February 2nd, and for even more on the shenanigans of Clarkson, Hammond, and May, check out our feature story on what’s happening with the ‘specials’ this season, and what the trio have gotten up to in Mozambique and Colombia.
