Doing cartwheels might have been fun as a kid, but it's not so much fun when you're an adult, traveling 200-plus-mph in a highly customized 2,000-horsepower twin-turbo Lamborghini Gallardo at the Texas Mile.

Fortunately the driver was unhurt and walked away from the crash--proof that modern safety equipment isn't only necessary, it's effective.

As for the cause of the crash? It was initially speculated that strong cross winds caused the car to lose traction once the chute was deployed to slow the car, and while that may still have been a factor, it looks like the car maintained stable forward motion for a few seconds after the chute deployed, becoming unstable only when the brakes were applied, causing the car to shoot off the runway into the grass at something north of 200 mph.

  1. I don't think insurance is going to pay for any of this.

  2. That'll buff right out!
    And to all of you who still don't wear seat belts, we don't really need you around anyway.

  3. This is amazing! How did he manage to walk out of that one? Safety seat belts really must do the trick.
