An Opel Omega Gets on a Bus. What Happens to the Two Vehicles? These Are Hard-to-See Images


Euro NCAP runs the frontal impact test with a rigid obstacle at a speed of 50 km / h. The Institute for Highway Safety in the States uses a speed of 64 km / h for the same type of test. But at 208 km / h, no one has ever tried an impact test.

The car, an Opel Omega, is launched on an airstrip, using a remote control, in the direction of a bus positioned perpendicular to its direction of travel. A female mannequin is in the passenger seat on the right.

A drone and several cameras located both on board the car and on the edge of the track, watch as the speed increases and as the distance to the obstacle becomes smaller. The car reaches a speed of 208 km / h just before the collision. This is captured from several angles.

The car disintegrates. The front is almost flattened. The front doors are piles of iron, and the rear ones can hardly be identified. The trunk and rear bumper remain the only parts that can be recognized from what was, a few seconds ago, an Opel Omega.

The way the vehicle looks proves that no person on board at the time of such an impact could survive, suffering injuries incompatible with life. The cabin is completely deformed.

The bus was sectioned. Not even the windshield escaped, although the impact took place right next to the rear deck of the bus. Pieces of the onboard mannequins are scattered around.

The Bulgarians sound an alarm and remind drivers that the higher the speed, the greater the braking distance. The simpler, the faster you go, the more asphalt you will need to stop. To demonstrate what they said before the impact test, the Bulgarians use a Dacia Duster.
