3 Photos That Will Make You Love The Grand Tour More Than You Already Do

The Grand Tour is almost here. Friday is so close you can practically taste it. The anticipation for Clarkson, Hammond and May’s return to the airwaves is nearing a fever pitch. We love the trio, we love their antics, their love of cars and mostly their totally unique and one of a kind personalities. Which brings me not so neatly to the Toyota Prius. It is no secret no enthusiast has ever liked, respected or ever longed for one. Apologies if you are a Prius fan, though how you ended up on our site is a mystery. They suck, they’re ugly, they’re the stuff of nightmares. They’re not as efficient as Toyota would have you believe, they’re not as environmentally friendly as you’d expect and they’re everything we hate about cars. EVERYTHING. Which is why when The Grand Tour decided to scatter a bunch of wrecked Toyota Priuses (Priusi, Priui, Prius? Who cares) across the globe we can only sit back and applaud them.

From Germany:


From Hollywood’s walk of fame:


All of these pictures depict some form of destruction of a Prius. I for one do not have a favorite. Honestly they’re all spectacular and amazing. I know this is a stunt of some kind but¬†whoever came up with it deserves a promotion a raise and their own shining monument erected somewhere within the Amazon’s headquarters.
