Video: Accident with Car Fire Ball Explosion

When you grow up with crappy action movies that contain at least one car explosion, you start to believe that that cars will simply catch fire if struck by a single bullet or even when they’re involved in simple accidents.
Then the Mythbusters come along and prove that cars are much safer than you’d think. But that might not always be true, because in mother Russia... we don’t have a joke, but this is one impressive explosion video.

The fire takes place at an intersection, where what looks looks to be a Renault Clio hatch collides with an indistinguishable sedan model. This then catches fire in what we can only call an explosion, since the flame ferociously engulfs the whole vehicle.

We think the old sedan might be running on LPG, judging how the trunk blows open and the way the flame moves, but there’s no way of knowing for sure. Usually, only after 3 to 5 minutes of being on fire will a petrol car’s fuel tank blow.

He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
