A pleasure cruise ending
in an abyss

So far we have only seen similar recordings made during crash tests. This video, featuring the totalling of an M3 on the hillside demonstrates the head airbag in action.

It is easy to get tempted to go pleasure cruising on the beautiful hillside roads of Arizona. Resisting such a temptation may be even harder driving a BMW M3, but this video shows just why it is a good idea to stay on the beaten track.

One of the dangers of group racing is taking risks that one would never even dream of taking alone. In this case irresponsibility and a sense of competition coupled with a curve sharper than expected, and the speed was simply too much for the BMW to handle. Such a dive is no rare instance, but thanks to the dashcam we are able to inspect the operation of the head airbag in a way we have never been before.

The driver was saved by the advanced safety technology, but the M3 is only a distant memory. The recording survived, though, enabling the driver to relive the last moments spent with his car whenever he pleases.
