The WORLD’s FASTEST CRASH TEST Ever: Watch How Much Is Left From A Family Car When It Crashes Into A Wall At 120 Mph?
We have all heard those stories of how fast was somebody going when they hit something or when they crashed into something. In reality, most of them are exaggerated and are as true as all the hunting and fishing stories. The Brits at “Fifth Gear” however, decided to have a real fastest in the world controlled crash. They took a first generation Ford Focus, since that is one of the favorite cars on the island, sped it up to 120 mph and slammed it straight into a wall. Statistically the seat belt brings down risk of fatal injury (when used) for about 50% in the front and about 73% in the back. The airbag ads approximately another 13% more safety to these numbers. However these are numbers for accidents that happen at lower speeds. As you will be able to see in the video, nothing helps you at 120 mph.
The vehicle decelerated from 120 mph to 0 in only 68 milliseconds, and in comparison it takes an average human 300 to 400 milliseconds to blink. The occupants of the vehicle experienced the force of over 400 G’s.
The host Jonny Smith is amazed since he can hear the crash echoing in the distance. To see the total inhalation of the Ford Focus play the video, but be aware it’s not for the faint hearted.
