At least he doesn't have to go back home and explain what happened to the old man's car.

I'd love to have that wheel and attached A-arm and take it into the local dealer just to tell them I've got a problem with my SLR. I'd pay money to see the look on the service writer.

Looks like most of the car didn't live. Was this a car crash or a bomb blast.

Same difference, at 100mph.

I agree, based on what remains. Or it was way over 100mph.

I agree, it had to be close to 200mph! That car was build by F1 experts so all that technology should play an important role in safety!

The cockpit seems to be in one piece, the rest is gone...
Probably tumbled a gazillion times!
