Accident prone presenter, Richard Hammond is normally the person involved when it comes to incidents involving car shows. The presenter most recently, was infamously involved in an accident whilst driving a Rimac Concept One during filming for the Grand Tour. This time, it's Top Gear's turn.

Presenters Chris Harris and Eddie Jordan were unfortunately involved in an incident whilst driving the new Alpine A110 at Monte Carlo's SS17 stage. Harris was driving, with Jordan in the passenger seat and thankfully they both escaped unharmed. The pair were sensibly wearing fireproof overalls and gloves and did not suffer any smoke inhalation.

It is unclear what caused the sports car to catch fire and the incident is now being investigated by the manufacturer. The car reportedly cut out, with warning lights appearing on the dashboard, and the pair got out of the car just as flames began appearing under the vehicle. The entire car was engulfed in flames in under four minutes.

  • Don't be rude please. The cars aren't perfect machines. You can drive an Alpine A110, a Rimac, a Lamboghirni, Jag or a Mercedes, you have some risks to have an accident everywhere. I hope the two presenters are safe after that tragic end.

    • Renault or not, a car can explode if there's a technical problem. The perfect supercars can be overated. Ferrari, Mercedes and the others are not perfect machines as I said. I don't understand why Renault especially. When we discovered VW,...

  • Well, it is french. As demonstrated by Jeremy a few years ago on TG, it's normal to have a small fire.
