The Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has admitted it will be “very, very, very expensive� to launch a new motoring show with Jeremy Clarkson and his Top Gear co-stars after signing up the controversial trio in a multimillion-pound deal following their departure from the BBC.


The billionaire tech entrepreneur said viewers were enjoying a golden era of television and that the new Clarkson series would be a global success.
“We have a lot of things in the pipeline which I think viewers in the UK and around the world are going to love. And I think Clarkson's new show is going to be one of those,� he told the Sunday Telegraph.
Bezos, who is worth an estimated $50bn , told the newspaper he was very excited about Clarkson's move, but did not confirm if he had met him or his fellow presenters or how much they were being paid.
“They're worth a lot, and they know it,â€� he said. The Financial Times has put the total cost to Amazon at $250m (£160m).
