Re: [DML] The COMPLETE DeLorean crash test videos, report and more.



Forgot This... Compare the Brickin crash test at 35mph to the Delorean crash test...

http://www.bricklin.org/BI_CrashTest.htm

Notice the Cabin was 100% untouched and the Doors were FULLY operational...as far as I remember even the windshield DID NOT crack..

Now which car would you rather be in in a Collision..

BTW..the Hood sustained NO damage and that Bricklin WAS repaired and put back to use

I sure as hell would NOT want to have been in that 40 mph crash..however the 35mph video shows a Very survivable  crash..with maybe just  very bad neck and leg injures ..again airbags that deployed with way to much force..
