Clarkson Prime

The budget for Jeremy, Richard and James’s new car show with Amazon Prime has now been announced and it’s not to be sniffed at
Clarkson Prime

When the guys were at BBC Top Gear they had a lavish £400,000 per episode to play with. That works out at around £7 million per season.

While that might sound like a lot of money, the new deal recently struck between the ex Top Gear trio and the planets most successful book shop is almost unbelievable. Under Amazon, the guys will have a £160 Million budget to produce their car show which is roughly £4.5 Million per episode!

Scope for potential is absolutely staggering

Challenges and tests in the old show were wild and varied. Ranging from Helicopter gunship evasion in a Lotus Exige to ripping the tablecloth from a beautifully set table using launch control in a Nissan GT-R.

Given the antics we are already used to in Top Gear, adding an extra £4 Million in funding per episode is close to outrageous. Surely this new show will feature a hypercar demolition derby in the worlds most famous football stadiums or an actual 20ft Clarkson Prime Transformer?

The scope for potential is absolutely staggering. While these ideas probably aren’t on the guys to do list, you can bet there are going to be some insane challenges which will be made even better by the fact the show is now under Amazon Prime.

Many have said that the subscription fee for Amazon Prime is too expensive for them to follow the guys new show as its priced at £79 per year however the range of other content available does make it worth the money to many subscribers.

Clarkson Hammond and May unhinged?

Clarkson is extremely happy that they will have complete freedom to make their show how they want to make it without being restricted by stringent BBC policy and good ol’ PC madness. Some might argue however that this was a key element in the shows appeal.

It was always great fun to watch the tongue in cheek humour between the guys that sometimes bordered on “unacceptable” for the BBC and it was even more fun listening to them backtrack and cover themselves, mockingly adding disclaimers into the conversation.

Without the added PC pressure we might just be about to see Clarkson Hammond and May unhinged.
