The force generated to do that was immense. Imagine the sound that made.

Well i belive it is a simple matter of the laws of physics.


An object in motion ( car ) will remain in motion, until stopped by outside force ( lets say tree ) now the greater weight of this car is in the rear therefore the amount of energy transfered must be so much it literaly splits the car?

Regardless of this story, let me say that I wish I was some rich Abu Dhabi kid. They all roll around in Bentley's, AM's, Ferrari's, you name it. Must be nice to be sitting on such a huge supply of one of the most valuable resources on our planet...
