grand tour on-set 2

A new trailer for the second series of 'The Grand Tour' shows the moments leading up to presenter Richard Hammond's terrible car crash.

The clip shows Hammond taking the wheel of a £2 million Rimac Concept car. Soon after, he crashed it, with the car catching fire and Hammond being rushed to hospital.

Hammond suffered severe leg injuries as a result of the crash.

The trailer was released exclusively to Amazon Prime members as part of Prime Day, which is a big sale day on Amazon.

It also shows Hammond and fellow presenters Jeremy Clarkson and James May on location in Switzerland, Mozambique and London.

Prime subscribers can watch the trailer here. Series two will launch later this year.

Speaking about the crash, Hammond told DriveTribe (the car-based social network set up by him and his fellow 'The Grand Tour' presenters): "I was aware that I was up high, and that inevitably the car was going to come down.

"And yeah, of course there was a moment of dread – 'Oh god, I'm going to die.'

"I mean if you look at those craters, that's a big hole that's just impact and it looks like the thing has been dropped from space to leave a hole that big.

"So yeah I was probably going, 'Well this is it. In fact that is what was going through my mind. I thought, 'I've had it.'"
