There are huge pay days, and then there’s Floyd Mayweather payday’s similar to what Amazon is professedly paying Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, James May, and Andy Wilman to assemble another motoring show in lieu of Top Gear. A report from The Daily Mirror shows the delivery monster and thriving supporter will pay the quartet $250 million to create three, 12-scene seasons.

That arrangement emphatically predominates the $100 million Netflix paid for two, 13-scene seasons of its political hit, House of Cards, and demonstrates that Amazon is savage genuine about building up an effective opponent to the new, Chris Evans-drove Top Gear.

Indeed, even at such a grand value, the venture by Amazon appears to be protected. As we reported already, the show might be accessible to individuals from the organization’s Prime Instant Video spilling administration, which in the United States costs $99 a year. With the range of 350 million viewers tuning in around the world for the Clarkson/Hammond/May time of Top Gear, the arrangement can possibly drastically build the quantity of Prime supporters, which accompanies free two-day transportation, Kindle book advances, and the Prime Music administration on top of feature spilling.

The show is slated to start recording this fall, albeit there is some awful news for enthusiasts of a certain white-suited agreeable hustling driver. As indicated by The Sun, The Stig won’t be joining his previous co-stars on Amazon Prime. That, and a $99 a year charge, still appear like a little cost to pay to see Clarkson, May, and Hammond back broadcasting live, however.

    I am a expert on many things automotive and the top gear staff hiring is a total waste of good money. The only audience Amazon will get are from the UK and few from the US. Clarkson is so self righteous and his ego is similar to Donald Trump. The exec at Amazon that made this decision should be and will be fired.
