Jeremy Clarkson's The Grand Tour indeed made a grand entry after knocking down Amazon's previous viewership records.

The former top gear trio's show is now officially the most watched premiere after crushing the record of The Man in the High Castle.

Amazon announced on November 21 that "millions of Prime members streaming the first episode in the US, UK, Germany, Austria and Japan" viewed The Grand Tour when it premiered last Friday (November 18).

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced The Grand Tour's remarkable new record: "The guys are back, doing what they do best - the chemistry between Jeremy, Richard and James is what makes The Grand Tour so entertaining.

"Their creativity, along with the amazing production quality and 4K HDR streaming, has Prime members responding in a big way. Kudos and congrats to the whole team."

Adding on that, Amazon gained a record number of subscribers last Friday upon the premiere of The Grand Tour.

Amazon Prime has reportedly invested £160 million in the series, equalling an average of £4.5 million per episode.

NetfliX boss Ted Sarandos spilled the beans on this situation, claiming that Amazon actually paid much more.

"It was about a quarter of a billion dollars," Sarandos told The Telegraph. "We'll be able to figure out later what it was that made the show the show.

"It'll be interesting with Grand Tour to see how much of that is the players, who in many cases are big personalities, but what elements of Top Gear will people miss?"

"We made a play for that show, definitely," Sarandos said. "But we've had every season of 'Top Gear' on Netflix in most territories in the world, so we had a better sense than most of what the audience was for 'Top Gear' on our platform. We knew what it was worth."

The Grand Tour airs new episode on Amazon Prime every Friday.
