Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson and his colleagues Richard Hammond, James May and Andy Wilman have taken a three year lease on 5,495 sq ft of office space at Power Road Studios, Chiswick.

The space, leased from Sapcote Group, will be the home for their new production company W Chump & Sons, which will be making the group’s new motoring show on Amazon Prime. The rent equates to £38/sq ft.

It will be a short commute for James May, who lives in Hammersmith but is a previous resident of Chiswick.

Jeremy Clarkson caused a traffic jam there in 2005 when he tried to drive a Ford GT over Hammersmith Bridge during a test drive, but it was too wide.

Amazon Prime has commissioned three series of the yet-to-be-titled motoring show, which is set to launch in 2016 with 12 hour-long episodes per series. They are to make 36 episodes of a new car show series over three years.

The show is expected to be mainly UK-based with a new look, new studio and new road trips. The three stars will also continue to pursue other projects .

Andy Wilman has said that they will be left alone to take the best of their old show and update it for a 'new world' audience. The show will be available to Amazon Prime customers.

The team left the BBC show Top Gear after Clarkson was dropped following a fracas with a member of the production staff. Chris Evans has taken over as presenter.

Sapcote director James Milner said: “Power Road is already home to a number of very successful companies in the media and creative sectors.

“My understanding is that the new show will feature some exciting new road trips - and there can’t be many London-based offices quite like Power Road that offer such great accessibility.”
