- Top Gear (episode 3) featured two KNAUS Sport&Fun caravans being towed by a Lamborghini Urus and an Audi RS6
- Presenters, Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris, competed to see which car would be the quickest to tow a caravan up to 120mph
- Both KNAUS Sport&Fun caravans completed the challenge successfully – and remained perfectly stable
- The programme used the standard KNAUS Sport&Fun model, available from £21,980, and the Black Selection model with a black and white colour scheme, available from £23,820.
BBC One’s Top Gear TV programme (episode 3, first broadcast on Sunday 18.10.2020) successfully took two KNAUS Sport&Fun caravans up to 120mph, towed by a Lamborghini Urus and Audi RS6, in a high speed challenge between presenters Paddy McGuinness and Chris Harris.
This took place at the private Top Gear test track in Surrey, and for safety reasons, the only adaption made to the standard specification of the KNAUS Sport&Fun caravans was changing the tyres for some with a higher maximum speed rating.
Importantly, both caravans remained perfectly stable throughout the extreme challenge, both while accelerating and slowing down again from high speed.
Mike Lake, from KNAUS UK commented: “It was fantastic to see our caravans on Top Gear and perform so perfectly throughout the challenge. Although the programme has a reputation for damaging or destroying caravans, we didn’t hesitate to get involved as we thought it was a good opportunity to show caravans in a more dynamic situation than previous features involving caravans on the show.”
“We obviously wouldn’t want to encourage anyone to tow beyond the legal limit, but this Top Gear challenge clearly demonstrated that KNAUS caravans perform well on the road, even in extreme situations,” Mike Lake added.
Anyone who missed seeing the high speed caravan challenge in episode 3 of the latest series of Top Gear can view it on BBC iPlayer for at least the next year.
