Mclaren 720s with water

One of the leading The Grand Tour Richard Hammond during tests of McLaren 720S supercar has made a mistake because of which repair or even replacement of the power plant is required. He set the car up with water instead of gasoline. It has occurred during shootings of the next The Grand Tour series.
