    At least it was only a Nissan - could have been worse, could have been PSA

    From the OzRenaultSport thread... the car is apparently nearly new, only
    just run in, and the owner was about to drive onto the track for a first
    blast of his new V6 Clio.... The fire seemed to start in the engine bay and...
    well... the rest is now a blackened and charred pile of alloy and steel

    More fine examples of peugeot and renault build quality. Too many say that it doesn't matter if the dash rattles and trim falls off on these modern cars, as long as the driving experience is great. I say, if they still can't screw the dash on properly and stop trim falling off on 95% of the cars that come off their production line, how can you trust they've clamped the fuel hoses etc properly???
    Take the long way home....

    I think the interior on the clio could be slightly damaged.

    I received the same images in an email. All the email told me was that it's a Renault Clio V6.

    The fact that the fire is coming from the rear kind of confirms it, seeing as the engine is back there...

    Don't get the idea these fellows have got it all on their own.
    I can remember years ago a Triumph 2000 was collected from Austral Motors retail arm in Collins Street (?) and in those days before smoking was a health hazard the new owner, feeling quite smug and being a poser in his new car, shove a durrie in his gob and hit the lighter as he stopped at the traffic lights right outside the showroom. This was followed by a loud bang and a ball of flame as apparently somehow the cig lighter had been connected to the fuel gauge sender unit in the tank (Real Al Quada stuff) at the factory and nobody had twigged it.
    Another time I had to run a Land Cruiser off the Gold Coast highway when it roared past me with flames like an after burner flowing out the back when the gold toothed Winny Blue smokin' driver on trade plates wouldn't pull over when I tried to flag him down. The rocker cover hadn't been tightened and this clown (in a brand new vehicle) was giving it so much stick that the oil got onto the exhaust manifold and ignited and was being fed from the top as the oil pumped its way into the tappet cover area and then discharged all over the tailpipe. When he stopped it disappeared into a ball of smoke; never seen anybody leave a vehicle so fast. When we lifted the bonnet it was well alight but we had to get it onto the road verge because it then set the grass on fire too! We managed to put it out before the lot went up.

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    Of course, the 206CC driver, only concerned with image, would coolly slip on some shades, calmly open a bag of marshmallows, find an appropriate stick, and pretend that it was meant to happen...
