We get the whole omelet and broken eggs equation, but after seeing all the photos of Enzos wrapped around poles, we still find it hard to wrap our own heads around the notion that someone would take a million-dollar exotic and purposely crash it into a wall.

Unfortunately, the realities of safety certification demand that even an exclusive and expensive supercar like the record-shattering McLaren F1 still needs to be tested, to some extent, for road worthiness.

The video after the jump shows what happened – or rather, what didn't happen – to the supercar as it was crash-tested at the Motor Industry Research Association (MIRA) facility in England. You'll notice how the front structure of the Macca's carbon fiber monocoque chassis absorbed all the impact, leaving the rest of the car intact. Amazingly, the car was reported as the only car ever to be driven away from a MIRA crash test.

Warning: If you suffer from a heart condition, polarized emotional tendencies or depression, Autoblog does not advise viewing the video after the jump. Viewer discretion is advised.
