Cement chimney smashes Top Gear TV car

Lafarge Cement was responsible for destroying the ‘reasonably priced car’ from the BBC’s Top Gear programme.

Cement chimney smashes Top Gear TV car

Last night’s episode of the cult TV programme saw the car, driven by tame racing driver The Stig and various celebrities, purposefully crushed by two of Lafarge Cement’s 550 feet chimneys when the Northfleet factory was demolished earlier this year.

It was the largest demolition job in Europe for over 200 years and its role in destroying the car was filmed with presenter Richard Hammond at Lafarge’s Northfleet site. The stunt helped raise £3,500 for the Kent Air Ambulance Trust and Ellenor Lions Hospices.
