Hahahah, soo funny how the BMW passengers are alive and the LExus, not so much.

As previously mentioned, at least he had a heck of a life and died what he enjoyed doing. At 67, he has had is time anyway

At 67 he had his time? He probably had 15 more good years left.

The Lexus was a prototype, and probably without airbags and full of electronics inside. The BMW was a production car.

They probably should have kept to a track until a near production car was available...... eh

Same thing happened to Porsche last year...

.... poor guy. RIP.
