Watch Jaguar Crash Test an F-TypeNovember 21st, 2014
You never want to see a car as beautiful as a Jaguar F-Type in a wreck, but it’s a necessary part of all vehicle manufacturing that they crash test their vehicles for safety. While most car companies don’t want you to ever see what their cars look like as a crumpled pile of metal, Jaguar’s bold new attitude has them sharing just that.
In this just released commercial spot, spokesperson Nicholas Hoult shows us just what happens when Jaguar runs one of its F-Types head on into a barrier. The company says it destroys as many as 60 of each vehicle it makes during crash testing. It’s a harrowing sight, but it’s also reassuring that this sort of testing happens to help make cars safer. It’s also impressive how well the F-Type’s passenger cabin holds up after such a devastating collision.
