    Anyone know what caused the fire or any details around it.

    I hate it when this happens. People always buy vehicles with the best intentions

    I must have missed something. Do D5's have a track record of spontaneous combustion ? This is the first one I have seen on fire and the cause is unknown as far as I can make out.

    Have to agree. The random boxes next to the car seems to be equipment of some sort?

    Odd if it would be burnt on purpose complete with its personalised number plates. It is still showing as taxed for UK use

    not controlled. The owner was complaining on facebook that he had 'worlds' to compete at with his dogs and now no car. Not much info otherwise on what caused it, seems to have started inside the car.

    i can be wrong
    but
    there is earth moving and lifting machinery on photos.
    not a fire truck.
    why?
    (who can resist to take photo of fire truck in action)

    fireman on scene and dry grass all over.
    looks like car was left to burn completely and fire,smoke
    to die on its own before anyone did anything.

    there is no dripping water from lifted parts.
    can not find roof also.glass roof maybe?
    i still can be wrong.

    and for facebook and social media...
    i forgot to update my status

    Dont get the point of your sarcasm. The boxes were for his dogs which he got out just in time.

    sorry if my post make you angry or upset
    i have no intention to argue but just to say that anything but
    thing witnessed can be altered.
    social media is big platform for any kind of arguing.

    last thing we need here is to start bashing LR for fire

    that was in my opinion test of some kind or
    maybe cellphone left on charge with faulty battery,
    or anything else....
