On the page Top Gear BBC America in Facebook published a video of the moment of the fire of the sports compartment Alpine A110, which occurred during the filming of one of the episodes of the TV show. The incident happened at the beginning of the year, but a full-fledged video appeared only now.
During the road accident, the driver of the car was the top Top Gear Chris Harris. In the role of the navigator, Eddie Jordan, who previously headed his own team of Formula-1, acted. The exact cause of the fire is not yet known. Apparently, the car was a loss because of problems with wiring.
“The Monte Carlo Rally was a dream for me. The trip by car along the road was perfect, Chris perfectly controlled the sports car. It’s such a shame that we failed the test car. However, one must understand that this sometimes happens, “Eddie Jordan noted then.
Alpine A110 was introduced in the spring of 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show. The coupe was equipped with a 1.8-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that produces 252 horsepower. The engine is combined with a robotic gearbox with two clutches. The sports car is capable of accelerating from place to first 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds.
