Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May will wrap up filming The Grand Tour in Dubai.

The trio will take the mobile studio used for filming their new Amazon motoring series, referred to as their "giant tent", to the base of the world's tallest structure, the Burj Khalifa.

The ex-Top Gear presenters have been travelling the globe to film the new series, which launches on November 18 on Amazon Prime Video.

They recently filmed the UK leg of the show in the seaside town of Whitby, North Yorkshire, following stints in South Africa and California and ahead of stops in Finland and the Netherlands.

Vice president of Amazon Video Europe, Jay Marine, said: "After an epic whirlwind trip around the globe, Dubai will be the final chance for fans to come and join Jeremy, Richard and James for the final studio recording of the first ever series of The Grand Tour.

"Demand for tickets has been incredible, so don't miss out and apply today to join the guys in Dubai for the ultimate adventure and an experience to remember. "

The official trailer released at the beginning of October has been viewed 6.3 million times on YouTube.

It shows the trio in exotic locations, joking that they have only had a ''minor fire'' when a stunt goes wrong.

Clarkson looks to be on good form as he's shown strutting towards a sports car, dressed in a cream suit.

"Looking good is more important than looking where you are going," he tells May and Hammond.

There's also no shortage of their usual banter as May scolds his co-stars when the shell of a car suspended from a crane falls into the ocean.

"That's to release it you muppet," he says.

:: The first episode of The Grand Tour launches on November 18 on Amazon Prime Video.
