The new Minis tend to provide quite spectacular crashes in that they roll easily and the super strong rollcages add to the amount of end over end action. There was that really bad crash in Australia where the Mini ended up going over a fence and landing on spectators.

Nothing against Volvo's. I see there is a few mad turbo'ed versions on youtube.

The mini tried to pass on the right hand side, should have been on the left!
Bad form of the Volvo not stopping.

Wow, I am so agitated now watching that. That damn volvo was swerving all over the road for a long time, I'd like to give him a slap for that AND for not pulling over.
