Unfortunately, if anything goes wrong at high speed, this could be the result. While our cars are made to go very fast, they aren't engineered to protect us in a crash in the upper end of the performance envelope.

Please make sure that your car is in top shape and that the road environment is controlled when attempting very high speeds.
