The Grand Tour Presents: Carnage A Trois is the second instalment of the lockdown specials and follows the three hosts embark on an epic road trip. Starting in the Welsh hills, they dish up a hair raising mountain climb, bomb defusals, propellor powered cars, helicopter stunts and the most thrilling race of their lives.
And all this comes before they even reach the English Channel for a jaw dropping medieval climax.
Jeremy Clarkson introduces viewers to a brief history of the French automotive industry before showing off his Citroen CX 25 Safari.
He dubbed it “the most French, French car of them all” and comes with some unique features like a vertically mounted stereo and a brake switch, rather than a conventional pedal.
The Matra Murena was the pick of the bunch for Richard Hammond and featured the rare aesthetic of having only three seats, all in the front, being powered by an engine that tops off at just 88 horsepower.
James May’s Renault Avantime was manufactured between 2001 and 2003 with May saying: “It’s made almost entirely of plastic, it appears to have been drawn by an eight-year-old who liked high speed trains and there are no conventional instruments”.
But the most unique feature came as he arrived to park, showing off the heaviest production car doors in the world, with May needing to drop to the floor to get out of his classic French motor.
The special follows the hosts examine classic French cars to understand the thought process behind some of the most unique vehicles that France has ever created.
Clarkson in particular took aim at the Citroen 2CV, saying: “This car is the harbinger of everything that’s gone wrong in this world.

“Veganism, cycling, Liberal Democrats, people who talk about having ‘my truth’. There’s no such thing as ‘my truth’.
“The truth is this thing is awful. It doesn’t even have wind down windows. It’s stupid.”
This is the first Grand Tour special since Lochdown which was released in July and saw the hosts travel from the English border, across Scotland, ending up in the Outer Hebrides.
The goal of Lochdown was to find out why old American cars were not popular in Europe, showing off classic American muscle cars like Mustangs, Buicks and Cadillacs.
