In episode 1, Thorkild Thyrring is the driver of the blue Ford Sierra whereas Erik Høyer drives the green Toyota (the police vehicle). The jump where the Toyota lands on its front bumper almost flipped it onto its roof. This was far from intentional. Thorkild Thyrring first tried the jump successfully, and Erik Høyer inquired of him: "How fast do you go?". "About 60 km/h is fine", Thorkild replied. However, the Ford Sierra had rear wheel drive whereas the Toyota had front wheel drive. Therefore, the difference between the two vehicles when performing the jump was so great that it nearly caused a serious accident. However, the Toyota eventually landed back on its wheels, and the director decided to keep the shot. This "unsuccessful" jump is therefore the one shown in the series.
