I think this question is too vague, I just googled dangerous cars and there are a mess of them. The car I had in mind is here: http://www.autosavant.com/2007/08/08...-a-cra****est/

For some reason the link is not working. Here's a piece of the article. Fiat and Chrysler have commitments to this company in 2007.

The test dummy became so entwined in the wreckage that it had to be removed from the car in pieces; he basically became part of the dashboard and steering wheel. The results were so bad that AvtoRevu called on Chery to immediately withdraw the car from the market. Chery declined to do so.

Jet, you were fairly close, take a turn.

Most people define the beginning of the muscle car as factory installed
large car engine installed into a mid size car. When did GM first do this?

I just had a e-mail of some guy that was texting, that hit the back of a semi- truck. I think it was a Honda but it was hard to tell, they took him out in chunks, as they showed them. They don't use live test dummies do they?

The gene pool gets another cleansing.

The crash test was done at 40 mph. This is/was a car that Chrysler had commitments to sell, I don't know if that deal is still on. I was perusing most dangerous cars, some had a '0' rating.
