If anyone thinks that roll cages are just an aesthetic detail to give our car a touch more racing, you should see this video. I guarantee that you will make your hair stand on end, but has a very educational purpose. It is a overturning more than 300 km / h of a Honda Insight especially prepared to break speed records. After losing his career, he ends up giving 15 somersaults , being completely destroyed in the process. Even after the bestial accident, the pilot was able to leave the car under his own power.
The pilot suffered several broken ribs and a large wound on his leg, but after seeing the condition of the car and the speed at which the accident occurred, it is fair to say that the roll cage saved his life.
