Swiss Man Launches New 5.0 Mustang Off Third Floor of Parking Garage!
Posted On: 12/6/2011 4:11PM

Apparently the 24 year old thought he was in reverse when he was first. A tree and several mopeds broke his fall and he walked away with only minor injuries (and luckily no one got hit). More pics after the jump! Via BangShift

New cars can do many things old ones can't, but one thing that they can't do is make up for driver inattention and stupidity.

Looks like it landed on it's butt. That says something about the weight ratio in flight in case we ever needed to know. Maybe european cars have the reverse gear forward and up?

My concern is why the walls of the parking garage are so flimsy. It's not pored concrete and there is not even any rebar.

Hey!!! Is it so hard? Email mentions "Some guy in Sweden" and now it's "Swiss man". It is ofcourse possible that it is actually a Swiss man driving the car off a parking garage in Sweden, but probably not. Get your facts straight; two different countries...

That was a hell of a fall! I'm suprised he wasn't killed by his stupidity. It said he only had minor injuries, that says alot of the safety features in the car.

Avatar By: DangerousDan562
12/13/2011 6:52 AM

I'd say it's more ignorance than stupidity. A lot of Euro cars have the reverse where the 1st gear should be. Probably just got the car and wasn't used to it.

Avatar By: PathosBedlam
12/13/2011 6:56 AM

He was lucky he landed backwards, or he'd be toast. 3rd story fall is around 120km/h when you hit. Possibly the lower level awning also helped slow the fall, mind you it looked in good nick, considering the fall it took.

That's a Mustang, not a Ram! But seriously folks, how thin is that concrete that the car pushed through so easily? I know that code in America is much stiffer, including the addition of rebar through the concrete.

What happened to easing the clutch out? You don't just floor it to get it out of a parking space. I don't buy his story.

Talk about your, "New car depreciation"? What ever value it had is GONE. Not to mention,there goes his insurance premiums. As comedian Carlos Mencia would say,"DE DE DE!" I think maybe this guy should stick to driving a car with an automatic from now on? If you're gonna make a mistake,why not make it a costly one? Otherwise,what fun is it?

P.S. Too bad there wasn't one of those new plastic looking toy Camaro's down there to break its fall? To me, those cars look like someone melted a beloved "69 Camaro(an abomination to the "69).

Thought he was in reverse? It does not follow man. Whether in reverse or first gear, this wouldn't happen if the idiot didn't ram the wall with a considerable momentum. If he took it easy on the accelerator, the wall would have just cracked. But yeah, there should be a higher building code for parking lots to keep people like this from endangering others.

too much watching movies bro....that's why they say dont do this or try to imitate the stunt.

It's in Switzerland. Watch the plates of the scooters. They show the swiss flag (white cross on red background). the "TI" on the plate means Ticino, a state in the very south east of Switzerland (italian part of Switzerland).

This is actually not a big surprise to me. Obviously the guy has no clue how to drive and should have never bought a stick shift, but the 6 Speed Manual Transmission that comes in the new Mustang has a safety feature to keep it from accidently going into reverse. From neutral you have to push the shifter down (into the box) and then downward and left (as in relative direction) before moving the stick up. If you're still pretty new to the car it's easy to end up in first.

Don't the Swiss make cheese with holes in it? That's peculiar. Not to mention, me & my buddies living room forts - made of dual couchbacks, cardboard and frickin couch cushions - were more durably fortified than that plywood-sided garage, which was clearly held together by standard staples. And not nah perimeter guardrails!!! Cheap-ass Swiss motherf..........never mind.
