Burning Alpine A110 nearly kills Chris Harris and Eddie Jordan

Attached Image Chris Harris and Eddie Jordan managed to escape from a fiery Alpine A110 during the filming of a Top Gear episode.

According to The Daily Mail, the two of them were in the small coupe on a closed section of the Monte Carlo Rally’s SS17 stage when the car's engine management light came on. After stopping the car, Harris opened the door and saw flames coming up his arm. Both of them jumped out of the A110 immediately before it was engulfed in flames.

It only took four minutes for the Alpine to be totally destroyed by the fire.

“Sadly the car was lost and it always makes me sad to see a beautiful car destroyed,” Harris said.

Alpine was later quoted saying that there was a "technical incident" during filming and is in the midst of investigating. In the meantime, it announced that it has "frozen all driving activities for pre-production cars".

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
