Limousines have always been the ultimate glitz taken to the asphalt in the form of car. Its massive size makes them unfit for driving anywhere, and its price makes available not nothing but millionaires or senior politicians.
As you know, most are due to normal cars, mostly sedans representation, to which a young bodybuilder half, and joins them a tube that follows the lines of the original bodywork, creating a wheelbase of several Extra meters from the original car.
Precisely because these cars are not designed with this in mind, if a limousine accident becomes a real coffin on wheels. If we add that in most cases the occupants not wearing a seat belt, the consequences can be even worse.
In Fifth Gear we can see how an old limousine Lincoln behaves in a classic crash test at 80 km / h against a concrete wall indestructible. The catastrophe is assured, because as we can see, the tubular structure that has been added to the car was not designed with controlled deformation structures.
This means that the full weight of deceleration after the collision takes all the nose of the car, which is completely flattened against the wall. The driver would have been done a prayer against the seat, with an immediate death and rear occupants more of the same, for not wearing a seat belt. In this case out violently thrown forward, and mixed between items car interiors, which are not designed with security in mind, like television screens or pointy refrigerator doors.
