Top Gear cops to being on-hand for Mazda Furai Concept car-b-que

Top Gear admits to accidentally burning the Mazda Furai Concept in 2008.

Five years after the beautiful Mazda Furai Concept debuted, Top Gear magazine has finally admitted to accidentally burning it to the ground in a teaser for the 20th anniversary issue – sort of. The magazine provides a photo of the crispy Furai Concept on its website, but has since allegedly revised the announcement to say that Top Gear was on hand for its “untimely demise in 2008.”

According to Jalopnik, the original teaser read like this:

Forgive us, for we have sinned. Top Gear is responsible for the untimely demise of the quite remarkable Mazda Furai Concept, and we’re very, very sorry. Find out how (if that picture hasn’t clued you in…) in our bumper anniversary issue, and try not to hate us too much.

So can you forgive them? We’ll forgive, but not forget, and keep watching Top Gear UK (how couldn’t we?). Since it apparently no longer exists, celebrate the gorgeous Furai’s former glory and take a look at its photo gallery.

There’s rolling footage to show you how “the wild and dynamic expressions of motion artistically realize a powerful presence” in that seriously Soul Red body. We should get more info on what other expression it intends to bring our way when we see it at the Paris Motor Show. For now, you can enjoy it and the original version of “All Day and All of the Night” in the videos below.
