The Colombia Special will be the third special episode of the Amazon Prime motoring series The Grand Tour, presented by ex-Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May. Originally, the special was meant to be filmed in October, 2017 however, following Clarkson's diagnosis with pneumonia, these plans were delayed until January, 2018. It will air as second and third episode of the show's third series.

Due to the late filming of the episode, it will not air with the rest of The Grand Tour's second series. Clarkson revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that it would likely go to air in mid-2018 as a standalone episode. The special in Colombia was also corroborated by the New York Post. The episode never aired in 2018, however, and was delayed until 2019.

It will be the first episode of The Grand Tour to be filmed in South America and the first time Clarkson, Hammond, and May have filmed there together since Top Gear's infamous Patagonia Special.

Production began on the 24th of January, 2018 in Cartagena. The presenters were sighted driving a trio of off-roaders, with Clarkson in a Jeep Wrangler, Hammond in a Chevrolet Silverado, and May in a Fiat Panda 4x4. They were later spotted in Colombia's capital city, Bogota.
