Logic would suggest that a large SUV packing an all-mighty V8 engine under the bonnet and sheetmetal tough enough for the German army would smash straight through any sort of compact car.
But once in a while, something happens that blows logic out of the water and makes you rethink your safety standards. Car News China reports on just such an accident, between a humble Honda Fit (Jazz) and the mighty Mercedes Benz G55 AMG, which could potentially be twice as heavy as the little Japanese box.

However, the G55’s high center of gravity worked to its disadvantage and it rolled over and landed on its roof. But as a testament to the German engineering, the door pillars did not crumble under the weight of the whole car, and it looks like the glass didn’t break either.

What’s more, the Honda driver was lightly injured, but the G55 driver wasn’t. However, eyewitnesses say the richer of the two ignored a red light, so we can’t say we’re completely satisfied with the result.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
