The Beach (Buggy) Boys – Part 1 is the seventh episode of the first season of The Grand Tour. It premiered on 30th December, 2016 on Amazon Prime.

SynopsisEdit

The presenters are set a challenge by their producer, Andy Wilman, who wishes to show that beach buggies are poor vehicles. Their challenge is to drive one thousand miles (1,600 km) along Namibia's Skeleton Coast in three beach buggies, each built to their personal specifications but all derived from the Volkswagen Beetle. After 36 hours of going nowhere, the presenters camp by the shipwreck of the Eduard Bohlen before venturing to the Namib Desert. The trio climb and descend several dunes and travel through harsh terrain before finally reaching a road. Jeremy Clarkson's buggy breaks down and is abandoned by Richard Hammond and James May, who arrive in Windhoek to have a beer while Clarkson struggles with overheating problems on his way to town.
