McLaren F1 crash test

April 23, 2007


This is a rare crash test of a McLaren F1. Amazingly, when crashed at 40mph the carbon fiber monocoque chassis absorbed all the impact, leaving the rest of the car intact. Also, this is reportedly the only car ever to be driven away from a MIRA crash test. Although if they tried this thing at the McLaren F1's top speed of 231mph it'd be a completely different story. Instead of a car they'd end up with a giant steel pancake.
