Cars are safer than ever been before. But no five-star crash rating, reinforced cabin cell and x amount of airbags can defy Newton’s simple laws of physics when speeds reach the highway limits and higher.
As the famed Jeremy Clarkson once said, “Speed doesn’t kill. It’s suddenly becoming stationary that does.” And while Top Gear is known to do the ambitious but rubbish tests, the program’s cousin Fifth Gear thought they’d show the world what happens when a car goes from 120 mph to zero.
But don’t worry. The car chosen for the test isn’t anything of particular interest.
So have a look at the video after the jump.
