Did anyone see 5th Gear last night ?
I Caught the tail end of 5th Gear last night and they were going on about a 5* Encap rated car hitting a 1* object, which in this case was a tree instead of another higher encap rated car etc.
They got a Lag II (52 plate) and hurled it at a tree at 55pmh with two dummies inside.... OMG is all I can say.... The car was litterally wrapped around the tree.
I now appreciate how safe my Lag II is... Apart from the bonnet / wings / front end, the rest of the car was intact. no creases on the roof etc, no windows smashed (windscreen was cracked). There was minimal pedal movement inside the cabin which may have resulted in a bit of injury, but all in all it stood up very well.
I for one and Glad Im driving a Renault today.
