Safety testing: gathering important information that can save lives in the most fun way imaginable!

They definately put this 850 through its paces! This car gets rammed, smashed and tumbled all in one clip and in glorious slow motion as we see every inch of that front bumper tested for strength. I dont envy the crash test dummies here, clearly they were not going to have a very safe day in this model, but none were injured in the making of this one. This might worry me if I had an 850, but I think for now I'll just avoid going over cliffs!
