The Grand Tour producers seem to be getting impatient, or something; they’ve published another video featuring the same stunt driver we saw jump-crashing a Renault Sport Clio 197 into a mocked-up portable building earlier today.
This time the unnamed stunt supremo is behind the wheel of a Renault Sport Megane. What happens next is a bit painful to watch. He wheelspins violently away from the line and… more or less immediately puts two wheels up a ramp attached to the end of some safety barrier, flipping the Megane over with gusto.
The white hot hatch rolls over several times. Bits come off, other bits get squashed, and no, it won’t buff out. We’re actually a bit sad to see that car destroyed. Unless it was a cheaply-repaired MOT failure and death trap, in which case we’ll let the producers off.
What this second clip does show, however, is that the Clarkson/Hammond/May/Wilman silliness is very much intact. Things are ramping up, if you’ll forgive the pun.
