What would be your description of “the best job in the world”? Nevermind, don’t answer that because since you’re on our website, we have a pretty good idea what it is – driving cars like they’re supposed to.
Unfortunately, the world doesn’t want affordable, “underpowered” sports coupes like the Toyobaru. It wants SUVs that defy the laws of physics, which is why The Grand Tour’s 10th episode. They’re supposed to go anywhere at Warp 10. But most people keep the immaculately clean, which is where big-budget car reviewers intervene.
The three luxury trucks performing magic tricks are the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, the Porsche Macan Turbo Performance Pack, and the Range Rover Velar. At only 380 HP with the supercharged V6, it’s the least powerful of the bunch. Sure, the latter has a fantastic interior, but this is no Doug DeMuro review. “Will it drift?” is the question on everyone’s minds, as well as “Will Captain Slow crash it into the fence?”.
We talked about these three performance SUV a while ago, when Jeremy, James, and Hammond were spotted behind the wheel. But the footage of them kicking dirt and sliding around is even better than we expected.
Another unexpectedly fast 4×4 is also making its appearance in the teaser video – infamous Tesla Model X. Sure, Elon sent the Roadster into space, but will the X be able to outrun an Audi R8 spuercar? Of course it is, otherwise filming the drag race would be pointless. Maybe the Germans are right to discontinue this thing.
The 10th episode, airing February 9 on Amazon Prime, will also apparently feature the Jaguar F-Type 2-liter crashing into a field.
