Video: McLaren F1 gets crash tested

 

The shocking video shows the famous supercar undergoing a simulated head-on collision at the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) crash testing facility in the UK. The clip clearly demonstrates the benefits of the car’s carbon fiber monocoque structure, which proved so secure that the Mac Daddy became the only car ever to be driven away from a MIRA test. Be warned: this video can induce uncontrollable sobbing.

At least the mid-mounted BMW V12 engine wasn't damaged in the crash.

  1. Ouch...I didn't need to see that so early in the day. It's amazing to see that the only damage inside the cabin was the steering wheel wobble. Where are the airbags?

    Bad stuff?

  2. I don't think that car needed them for the years it was produced?
    Sad to see such a thing, though isn't it?

  4. When you have a 5 point racing harness an air bag is pretty much useless.
