Uh I was thinking one way it could flip is if it spun around and got some lift. Not a concern just more of a scientific curiosity and devices that could help stop the lift. Like different tails.
^^^ or better drivers.

After see the real crash ratings for this car based on the results of the incident with tree. I'd say this car will probably score high overall.

~95% tree wraparound right there. I'd say GM/Holden finally bucked the old camaro trend (Mullets too.. now it's just wannabe 'gangstas' and 'rappers').

Very nice.

Unfortunately, as you all know, I can personally attest to the 5-star side crash rating... And as I've said already, I was incredibly impressed by this beast of a car

I figured this car would hold up well after seeing some of the accidents on this site. Way to go GM!

it weighs 2 tons... gonna take a whole lot of lift to get it up in the air going backwards. now if you cornered too hard, blew a tire and hit a curb on the side of the car at speed, you could probably roll it. any one got a Camaro for me to test this theory?

You could drive behind a 747 while their engine is full thrust. Should get some air to.
