100 MPH vs 186 MPH is a HUGE difference.
The force of impact becomes exponentially greater at 186 MPH.
Surviving a 300 km/h crash definitely shows a car is safe.
I'm far from a fanboy as I've owned cars of all luxury brands over the years. I'm not a "bimmer for life" guy.
Remember the Enzo that got cut in half?
The driver survived and took off before the cops came. That also showed that thr Enzo was safe (even though the car sheared in half).
