European automakers are fixated on making very safe cars. They've engineered systems that beep when you wonder outside your lane, beep when you're about to crash and even brake when you're too slow to react. These cars are the tested to destruction by the European safety body Euro NCAP.
However, we've never seen the guys who develop these systems stand in front of the a speeding car just to prove it will stop in time. These Dutch engineers who design tanks, and we don't mean esthetically, do just that in a test of both braking and courage.

A couple of the turn and look for a second, but all stay frozen in spot as a tank weighing tens of tons barrels towards them It looks scarier being attacked by lions and they don't even flinch.

Editor's note: That's a Leopard tank, so the clip could be a bit old.

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.
