No i think a BA XR6 which was owned by ford for the media to test was the first one im told, but yeah it could be. Hopefully there was only a driver and no passengers.

Thats unbelievable...I reckon Ford should buy that wreck and analyse the crash damage for future development.

Hope nobody was hurt...

Hope nobody was hurt.

This car is actually a goldmine for Ford because they can study it to see how well it coped with a severe side impact.

There is nothing like a real-life crash to learn from.

From the looks of the pics, it came out of it pretty damn well, with only minor intrustion into the cabin.
