Do we take it that he doesn't like Citroen DS's? but it does pose a couple of questions, are DS's naturally weak and tear in two in a side impact, or have they been weakened at that point to provide the spectacular footage?

More importantly was that a Beta Saloon that smashed through 10 DS's at 200 KPH before ending up on its roof?Huh?

I think it's a case of matracide - Citroen CX?

What I mean is, at 2mins, is that not a Flaminia 3B hitting the DS?

This seems to be something of a French national sport!

Is it likely that all the DS's have been weakened in the same way or is it that they sit so low with the suspension let down that the projectile car is effectively driving over the floorpan and bursting them apart from within?

Frank,
I haven't had another look to check but all citroens with the hydraulic suspension sit nearly on the floor when the engine is turned off, a great feature with them  with the engine running and the pump going was that you didn't need a jack, you just lifted it up to it's highest position then lowered onto an axle stand or a block.
Also very useful in the full up position for fording small rivers, streams and floods Shocked
