I found these pics online from a crashed Fahrenheit in Las Vegas.

The car was 3 months. The owner was driving down Flamingo Road at 45 mph on the far right lane and an idiot in a truck pulled right in front of him.

The fahrenheit steered left to avoid him but flipped and hit the medium and then he flipped again and went across three lanes of oncoming lanes.

He went 300 feet and across 6 lanes because of this moron. No injuries to the driver at all.

For the scene you described, I am surprised at how little damage there is to the car, relatively speaking. While it's sad to see a loss of a great car, it's good to know we're in a car that will hold us in a nice cocoon if something goes terribly wrong...

Yep, stock leather.

Like you said, I was also surprised how 'well' the car looked after flipping twice and that the driver did not have ANY injuries.

If what you say happened to it really did happen, that car looks fantastic for how bad it got thrown around. My sister's bug looked 100% worse than that, and she just rear ended someone, although I guess that would be about right.

45 mph.

uh huh ! Right. ;) ::)
Well...nobody does 45 mph on Flamingo, except old ladies with blue hair.
55-60 mph is more common - he prob. didn't want to mention the correct speed cuz some insurance dude might be reading ;)

Its sad one of us especially a FH already has gone down but for the damages.. it could have been much worse.. except for that right fender.. really shredded. The car to me looks mostly still partable. I too am glad the pilot wasnt seriously injured. O0

I think all the FH owners should be happy... the more that get totaled, the more rare a FH edition becomes...
