The latest offering from The Grand Tour team is here, and it’s everything fans have been waiting for. “Eurocrash” takes the trio of automotive enthusiasts—James May, Jeremy Clarkson, and Richard Hammond—on an epic 1,400-mile road trip through the enchanting landscapes of Eastern Europe. But of course, with these three at the helm, there’s much more to the story than just the miles covered.

If you’re yet to catch the latest episode, fear not. The Grand Tour’s YouTube channel has you covered with a 20-minute clip that acts as both a prologue and an epilogue to this thrilling adventure. This video strikes the perfect balance, offering enticing glimpses without spoiling the fun for those who haven’t had the chance to watch the full episode yet. And for those who have indulged in the nearly two-hour special, the clip serves as a satisfying wrap-up.

A highlight of the episode is Jeremy Clarkson’s car, which braved the entire journey unscathed. This enigmatic vehicle is none other than the Mitsuoka Le-Seyde. Underneath its distinctive exterior lies the essence of a Nissan Silvia S13, complete with a front-mounted, naturally-aspirated four-cylinder engine. However, the Le-Seyde boasts a slightly stretched wheelbase, resulting in a front-to-back arrangement that can only be described as unique. The spacious engine bay provides ample room for the powerplant, while the cabin accommodates a modest two-passenger setup.

The video offers a deeper dive into the eccentricities of the Mitsuoka Le-Seyde. A comical revelation surfaces as Clarkson opted to replace the car’s original seats with permanently bolted Recaros. This modification, while amusing, left Richard Hammond grappling to see over the steering wheel, let alone navigate the challenging Eboladrome circuit. With Hammond’s daring lap completed, James May steps into the driver’s seat to provide his assessment of the vehicle, accompanied by the clinking of candelabras in the wind. Surprisingly, neither presenter is particularly impressed by the Le-Seyde.

While Clarkson doesn’t make an appearance in the video, his opinion is intriguingly different. Hammond reveals that the Mitsuoka Le-Seyde, after its eventful journey, is destined for Clarkson’s personal collection. Remarkably, this sentiment echoes Hammond’s decision to retain the Chevrolet SSR he drove during the Eurocrash special. However, May took a different path, opting not to hold on to the tiny Crosley he piloted. Perhaps the challenge of navigating highways amidst passing semi-trucks played a role in this decision.

As of now, “The Grand Tour: Eurocrash” is streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime, providing viewers with an unforgettable blend of breathtaking vistas, automotive escapades, and the unfiltered camaraderie that fans have grown to adore. While the future remains uncertain, one thing is clear—the automotive trio has once again proven that their journey is anything but ordinary.
