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.
