Pictures of a Bagheera destroyed by fire:
http://112gooienvechtstreek.nl/cgi-bin/2007gooi/main/index1.html?menu=FotoGroot&id=778544886&fotonr=7&titel=Auto%20vliegt%20spontaan%20in%20brand%20tijdens%20het%20rijden
"Auto vliegt spontaan in brand tijdens het rijden" = Car catches fire spontaneously during driving.
The photographer doesn't recognize the car.
According to https://www.rdw.nl/Ovi/Paginas/Default.aspx, the car with license plate DY-39-TX has the following information:
MATRA SIMCA BAGHEERA JUBILEE, registred 01-06-1979, same owner since 01-05-2002, MoT due 13-09-2007

Very sad, seeing a good Bagheera ending this way... I don't know the owner (a friend sent me the URL), but by the looks of it, it is a very well preserved car. Until it caught fire, that is.

Fuel leak?
I think so.
Doordat de benzinetank scheurde had de brandweer enige moeite met blussen. => Because the fuel tank ruptured, the firefighters had some trouble putting out the fire.

Hi
So remember to have a fire extinguisher in your Matra!!
You are after all driving a plastic car with a plastic fuel tank that is placed next to the engine.
