Richard Hammond reveals details on new Amazon Prime TV show

Whilst he may be best known for presenting Top Gear and The Grand Tour, Richard Hammond is also a keen scientist and engineer. Relishing the chance to flex his scientific muscles once again, he’s revealed more details about his “very very new and fresh” Amazon Prime TV show.

You may remember that back in the early 2000s Richard hosted a children’s science show called Brainiac: Science Abuse.

Famed for its plentiful use of explosives and dislike of caravans, Brainiac also introduced generations of children to the wonderful world of science and engineering.

Richard isn’t new to the pop-science game

Fast forward over a decade since the last episode of Brainiac aired, and Hammond is once again putting on his lab coat to bring ‘pop science’ to the masses in his new Amazon Prime show alongside co-host Tory Belleci in a show that will be “unlike anything that’s been done before” according to Hammond.

Tory is no stranger to the world of popular science either, being well-known for his time on American pop-science show Mythbusters.

Hosted by Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman, Tory also starred alongside Kari Byron and the late Grant Imahara.

These two giants of science entertainment aren’t doing things by halves either.

In an interview with DRIVETRIBE, Hammond explains that they will be using their “pop science knowledge to not only survive… but to sur-thrive” in their “totally new take” on this style of show.

When can we expect to see it?

Discussing this new project, Hammond seems genuinely excited at the prospect of being ‘trapped’ on a desert island with only his (and Tory’s) science and engineering know-how in order to survive.

Unfortunately beyond the basic details, when asked what he could tell us Hammond responded with “not a lot; Because its kind of all under wraps” so we may be due another update before the show airs.

Richard did reveal that the show is currently in the process of being edited. With an expected release date later this year, you shouldn’t have to wait too long to see these titans of science fight for survival.

Logan Paul has risen to fame as one of the most prominent YouTubers and online personalities of the 21st Century. His success brings financial rewards, and his growing exotic car collection reflects this. 

YouTuber and online personality Logan Paul is no stranger to the spotlight. Along with his brother Jake Paul, he is now one of the best-known content creators on the planet.

While not all of his news features are for the right reason, his success is undeniable with 22 million + followers. His car collection reflects this, and contains some very unusual and unique vehicles.

Logan Paul’s car collection

One of the best-known vehicles in Logan’s collection is his Mercedes G-Class G500 4×4 squared. While that may be a mouthful of a name, it is an undeniably impressive bit of kit.

Despite being dramatically styled from the factory, Logan took his 4×4 squared one step further and sent it to RDB LA for a number of personal customizations. Dubbed ‘The Yeti’ once completed, the imposing jeep was fitted with a massive snowplow – the first in the world to receive such treatment.

Alongside his ‘Yeti’ Logan also has another standout custom vehicle – the ‘Cool Bus’. A fully customized and kitted-out ex-school bus, this isn’t a regular vehicle for Logan but is instead used a way of promoting his merch.

Featuring a custom teal blue wrap, pumped-up sound system, heavy-duty front winch, and custom exhaust system, the Cool Bus is a serious piece of marketing kit.

Logan Paul exotic cars

While Logan isn’t one to splash out on expensive supercars in the same way his brother Jake does, he still has some interesting performance cars.

His Dodge Challenger is a V8-engined American ‘muscle car’ that is designed for all-out straight-line speed. While not extensively customized in the way his ‘Cool Bus’ is, Logan appears to wrap it to match his latest merch line designs and uses it as another way of promoting his range.

As well as the Challenger, which was given away to one lucky subscriber earlier this year, Logan also has a Polaris Slingshot for a ‘fun’ car. Purchased as a gift to himself on his birthday, it is likely to just be used as a casual car for fun rather than any serious motoring.

While he may not have the biggest collection in the world, Logan has more unique ways of showing his wealth, such as spending $200k on Pokemon cards. Either way, it is still a very unique collection of vehicles for the YouTube star.
