Default Smartcar Takes 70MPH Crash On The Chin

Unbelievable!

The German-engineered Smartcar, soon to hit U.S. lots, looks like a toy but takes hits like an old Volvo.

Filmed here with its rollcage surviving a 70 MPH crash into a concrete wall, it presents two grand mysteries. First, the almost-magical durability present in such a tiny vehicle, and second, the fact that it can reach 70 MPH at all. The thing looks dangerous just moving at that speed.

Dayum..... still don't think I'd want to be in it for a 70 mph collision with anything! I am impressed it held up as well as it did, though.

I want to see how that will stand up to getting plowed by other much larger vehicles. Remember that most accidents include other cars.
