Cars race to the top for most pirated show ever

Cars race to the top for most pirated show ever

Last year, HBO's "Game of Thrones," was crowned king as the most pirated show for the fourth year in a row. With 14,400,000 illegal downloads in 2015, that's pretty impressive. Especially since the first-runner up, "The Walking Dead," had only 6,900,000 illegal downloads.

But this year, it looks like "Game of Thrones" has finally been "dethroned" by a newcomer.

Which show has everyone turning to piracy to watch? It's a show that has been driving car enthusiasts wild and even those of us who can't tell a radiator apart from a carburetor.

Amazon's "The Grand Tour" is officially the most pirated show of all time, surpassing the "Game of Thrones" record by a whopping 4,500,000 downloads.

Since the show was released, its first three episodes have collectively pulled around 18.9 million downloads.

"The Grand Tour" features the adventures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May. The three test drive exotic cars and set up tents around the world where audiences can come to watch these cars in action. The show also captures the quirky friendship and drama that exist between these three friends, and highlights their personalities.

Part of the frenzy could be due to the fact that the show is only available on Amazon Prime Video, so if you don't have a Prime membership (which costs $100 per year), you can't access it legally.
