Unusual exhibition promotes new Top Gear program
January 22, 2014
An exhibition of Polish cult cars Polonez and Fiat 126p in unique arrangements, located at the intersection of Pasaż Wiecha Promenade and Chmielna Street in downtown Warsaw can be seen until Jan. 23.
The stunt features not just ordinary cars. A group of professionals have worked on each of them creating true objects of art. The exhibition is connected with a new “Top Gear Top Fails” program, airing for the first time from 23rd January on BBC Knowledge.
The cars, displayed in two glass containers, have been converted to vehicles adapted in a funway to Polish road conditions – Fiat 126p has become a snow scooter, for which uneven ground and heavy snow will not be a problem. While Polonez has been slimmed down, which will make it easy to drive on a narrow street and in a traffic jam.
Special screens placed in the glass containers present works on the cars from the moment of delivering them to the garage until full effect. During the breaks between short videos passers by can watch a trailer of “Top Gear Top Fails”.
Hosted by Richard Hammond, “Top Gear Top Fails” presents two hilarious episodes looking back at all that Top Gear has (tried to) accomplish. “Top Gear Top Fails” celebrates some of the iconic, but rather embarrassing, “ambitious, but rubbish” challenges as well as the boys’ lesser-known disastrous adventures.
