Clarkson beamed onto Burj Khalifa as shooting ends on The Grand Tour

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May celebrated wrapping The Grand Tour by having their images projected onto the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building.

The trio filmed the final episode of the first series at the weekend.

To mark the occasion, the 828-metre high building in Dubai (which, incidentally, is the equivalent height of 487 Richards) featured a projection showing cars racing up the side. The presenters themselves were then revealed.

Jeremy, Richard and James have been travelling the world filming the first series of the Amazon Prime show.

The team has already taken the show’s mobile studio – a giant tent – to Johannesburg, California, Whitby, Rotterdam, Lapland, Stuttgart, Nashville and Scotland.

For its final stop, the studio was pitched at the base of the Burj Khalifa.
