Holy Jet Car, Hamster — Here's The Exclusive Crash Footage!

It just aired on the BBC, and now we've got it right here for you. The "it" we speak of is exclusive video of Richard Hammond's death-defying 288 mph jet car crash. And no, it's not a hamster in a ball hitting a wall — although we did think that was funny.


UPDATE: We've got the full 12 minute segment, which is both scary and hilarious, after the jump!

I'd been karting that morning, pushing the things way too hard for sanity (for which I now ache in places I didn't know I had places) and I get the feeling that I wouldn't have driven anywhere near as hard if I'd seen that video beforehand. I was expecting the clip to raise a lot of discussion afterwards, but there's not really a lot you can say.
