That's crazy wild. I didn't know that they did high speeds test for BMW's on the Autobahn. You can tell by the state of the car's destruction he was going super fast.
May his soul rest in peace.

Think it's good to test the car in a situation that it will be used in.

If that is the case, I would say this BMW failed. The driver died. Back to the drawing board.

RIP to the test driver.

You can't simulate the Autobahn on a track...
