We're used to seeing those standardized crash tests involving cars and concrete blocks. But Switzerland's Dynamic Test Center puts those to shame, rigging up unusual, kinetically violent arrangements at the request of clients in search of unexamined data points. What happens, for instance, when a car T-bones or rear-ends another car at 200 kilometers per hour?
Okay, so that was pretty much what you thought was going to happen. But how about when a farm tractor carrying a trailer full of logs crashes full-speed into a five-car traffic jam with a flatbed truck at the front of it?
It gets weirder and more eye-opening. Here's a selection of some of DTC's strange, occasionally terrifiying set-ups:
DTC is, unsurprisingly, "the largest centre of excellence for vehicle safety and vehicle dynamics in Switzerland," according to the company. "Its services are available to anyone interested in taking advantage of them—whether they are from the industry, trade or service sphere or the authorities." It would be awesome if, once a month, they took random requests from Core77 readers.

The motorcycle hitting the car one is horrifically entertaining. The people sitting in the RV during the crash is frightening; lots of people travel just sitting in RVs, no seatbelts, but look at all the flying cupboards and debris that falls on them. I want to see a skateboarder t-bone a moving car.
I wonder what a chair looks like when it crashes into another chair?
