The Renault Espace has appeared a number of times on Top Gear.

Convertible People CarrierEdit


Convertible People Carrier

"There are convertible versions of hatchbacks, of coupés, of supercars, why not of people carriers? The presenters set out to rectify that by sawing the roof off an old Espace and then putting it through a series of tests. Conclusions? Mostly monkey proof. Not so good in car washes." Top Trumps - Top Gear: The Challenges

The Espace was made into a convertible people carrier by the boys. They put it through a number of tests. The first one was fairly simple. The Espace just had to drive to 100 m.p.h. with the hood up without collapsing. Next it had to drive through Woburn Safari Park, Bedfordshire, surviving lions and - oh no! - barbary macaques. Amazingly, the Espace survived lions and scary monkeys and soldiered on to the next challenge. The final test involved driving througha brand new car wash. This bit didn't go so well. In fact there was a fire. However, they must have saved it because it appeared on the Tractor Challenge.
