Here’s What Happens If You Shift Into Reverse At 40MPH (VIDEO)

Shift reverse 40mph

I’m sure you could come up with some guess as to what would happen, but I doubt anyone has actually ever been dumb enough to try it. That’s where this guy comes in. No idea who he is or why he thought it would be a good idea, but I suppose somebody had to figure out the truth didn’t they?

Watch and learn:

Yeah, that was fairly underwhelming wasn’t it? I was hoping the car would explode, but nah it just burns out the tyres, sounds like it’s going to break and then starts going backwards. I guess at least now we know and don’t have to tune into the new series of ‘Top Gear’.
