Crash-testing a vehicle is the perfect real-world method of seeing how a car will stand up to a variety of impacts. Whether it be head-on, an offset crash, a side-impact crash or a rear impact, various safety groups around the world test vehicles to destruction to verify that they are safe enough to be out upon the roads. But, there are the ones that simply scare the testers with how bad they actually are. And this YouTube video, uploaded by user RP01ful, shows these horrific scenes in brilliant slow motion. The variety of cars ranges from Chinese sedans to European classics, from an Australian classic to an American staple, and the crashes rate from “cringe-worthy” to “Holy…!” You’ll be amazed at what has been allowed on the streets.
Hit play and enjoy the carnage!
