Ouch, that video was traumatizing. Damage doesn't look like it matches the purported speed though?

Certainly does not look like a 90mph impact. I've seen nhtsa 35 mpg offset crash test vehicles in person and that's more what this looks like. That test simulates a 60 mph oh shit type crash, where driver hits brakes before impact.

Audio sounded like he only got to the top of second gear anyway. That's probably 75 tops in the M3

You can clearly see approx 100km/h before the crash, so approx 60mph.

If you look at the in camera speed before the crash, you can see the speed dropping. Right before impact it is near 100, but since speed wasn't updating very quickly on the camera, I guesstimated it to be closer to 90. Either way, 90-100 ... its around 55-60 Mph.
