I found this on an egyptian koup site. driver said he was changing lanes at 85 mph (in a wide turn, speed limit 50mph) on 4 lane road when he lost control and crashed into a wall.

Pretty impressive that the car held up that good. the picture of that rim is incredible.

There was only one guy in the car, he was racing when he lost control. He made it out without a scratch

he may have lost control @ 85, but that car didn't hit a wall @ 85 I guarantee that.

one thing worth mentioning: The guy was pissed that the passenger side airbag deployed when there was no one in the passenger seat. (but cars in africa and asia don't have the automated disabling of the airbag like the USA models)

First contact was made with the wall after 120 degree spin and the car was already sliding for like 5-10 meters . i think was a little over 85 when it started sliding but the driver in the car behind me said that he was doing 90+ and i was going away from him ..

All of that damage and he's worried about the passenger side airbag going off? Go figure.
That extra airbag added like 1000$ to my 6000$ on going repair bill .

Airbags are prob one of the most expensive things to replace. All the sensors, the bags themselves, and the the dashboard/steering wheel replacement

this is @ 35mph only
That is a totally different story , i didn't go straight into a wall , only crashed at the side wall of the road , it was like 120 degree spin hit the wall with the front of the car , another 90 spin then hit the wall with the right back of the car , another 180 spin then the car finally decided to stop on the other side of the road 4 lanes away .
Side barrier like this similar to this
