What happens to toy cars at 200 km/h?

Date:5 December 2017 Tags:, , ,

Switzerland’s Dynamic Test Centre, the facility famous for crash testing strange and unusual wheeled objects, is back with another round of comical video clips. This time, the folks at DTC crashed a bunch of toy cars into a wall at more than 200 km/h. Let’s just say, you wouldn’t want to be Barbie when her convertible meets the immovable object.


To celebrate the holiday season, the DTC team decided it would be fun to smash a collection of toy cars, trucks, and other vehicles into a solid wall at 200 km/h using its floor mounted propulsion system.

The results, unsurprisingly, are devastating—for the toys, anyway. Every vehicle DTC sends into the wall explodes into a thousand tiny little pieces on impact, leaving almost nothing recognisable. The Lego Ferrari Enzo crash looks especially catastrophic.

Though it may not end well for the toys, we can’t stop watching. Take a look for yourself.
