In the latest batch of previously-unreleased Grand Tour footage to make its way onto the internet, the producers show a surprisingly human side to the filming process; It seems that even professional drivers still get things wrong sometimes.

While Richard Hammond is known for being the most likely of the trio to crash or mess something up, it seems that Jeremy Clarkson and James May also have their fair share of issues.

Whether it’s driving insanely expensive cars or racing on closed city streets, even professionals (who seem to have the best job in the world!) have bad days.

There’s no doubt that being given responsibility for a multi-million dollar car puts a heavy burden on the shoulders of these experienced drivers and contributes to a few bumps in the road.

Classic cars fight back

Clearly even seasoned veterans sometimes crack under pressure, with Hammond being seen struggling with the gearbox of a $2million + Jaguar XK SS. With these vintage cars there is no synchromesh to allow easy gear selecting, making the process rather hit-and-miss at times.

Evidently the sun and pressure it was all too much for Hammond, as after failing to select first gear he eventually stalls the car completely. Hammond isn’t the only presenter to crack under the pressure of rolling cameras however, as Jeremy has also been caught in the act.

“We’ll edit that out!”

Blasting around closed-off French streets in a classic Aston Martin DB4 lightweight, Jeremy also falls victim to the complex driving characteristics of these vintage machines.

Having caught his bracelet in part of the seating harness forcing him to stop and abandon his run, Jeremy then tries to get the car underway. Unfortunately due to the stiff clutch, he then goes on to stall the car completely in front of the rolling cameras.

With a cheerful smile and a quick quip of “we’ll edit that out” he is quickly back to work waking up the local residents with his foot pinned to the floorboards of the DB4.

Watching the finished episodes, it is easy to forget that Clarkson, Hammond, and May are still very much human like the rest of us. They still make mistakes occasionally, often with hilarious consequences – the only difference is that their mistakes are captured for us all to enjoy.

Kylie Jenner is one of the most successful young entrepreneurs the world has ever seen, and her car collection proves it. With everything from luxury SUVs to top-range hypercars, she has all bases covered in her car collection.

Kylie Jenner is a social media sensation, serial entrepreneur, and bonafide car collector. Considering her age, she has an incredibly diverse taste in cars with both ‘typical rich kid’ cars and some very left-field choices.

As with everything in her life, she regularly posts her car collection to her Instagram, showing off her rides to over 198 million followers. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the best cars from Kylie Jenner’s car collection for your enjoyment.

Kylie Jenner Car Collection AMG G63

Kylie Jenner’s luxury car collection

As any self-respecting entrepreneur will tell you, appearance is everything. Well, Kylie certainly has that one covered, with a whole host of luxury cars at her disposal.

Jenner has no less than three different variations of Mercedes G-Wagons. These luxury 4x4s are a great way to make a statement wherever she goes. Her collection ranges from a bright orange AMG G63, to a standard Tan-colored G-Wagon that regularly makes appearances on her Instagram feed.

Rolls-Royces also play a big part in her car collection. She has been seen with no less than four different Rolls-Royce Ghosts, though it is unclear how many of these are simply the same car that has been repainted.

Perhaps most notable from her luxury car collection is her classic Rolls-Royce. Gifted to her by ex-boyfriend Travis Scott, the classic Rolls is one of the most unique and stunning cars in her collection. For day-to-day duties, Kylie also has two Range Rovers. Perfect for driving around without drawing attention to herself, they are also the cheapest cars in her garage.

Kylie Jenner’s supercars

Not only does Kylie have a number of opulent luxury cars, but she also appears to be a fan of the faster things in life. Her supercar collection is enough to make any petrolhead jealous, with a few notable highlights.

Kylie has a number of different Ferraris, including a Ferrari 488 Spyder which she bought to match with her sister Kendall back in 2018. Not only does she have the 488, but also a 458 Italia spyder in a custom blue finish.

Lamborghinis are also a common theme in her collection. Jenner owns both a bright orange Lamborghini Aventador (which matches her AMG G63 truck) and a red Lamborghini Urus. The Urus is a recent addition to her collection, and is ideal for traveling in style with daughter Stormi.

The stars of her collection are undoubtedly Kylie’s hypercars. Back when she was dating Travis Scott, the rapper gifted Kylie a black Ferrari LaFerrari after giving birth to their daughter. Worth a cool $1.4m, the LaFerrari isn’t even the most expensive car in her collection.

The jewel in Jenner’s collection is her Bugatti Chiron. Bought as a dramatic ‘breakup present’ to herself after splitting with Scott in 2019, the $3m 1000hp+ hypercar is a stunning (and expensive) way to get over a heartbreak. All told, Kylie’s collection is worth in excess of $5.5 million.
