Head over heels. A Mercedes-Benz CLR built for the 1999 24 Hours of Le Mans

to quote wiki: "It became infamous for spectacular crashes during its only competitive outing.

Peter Dumbreck shown here in the #5 CLR chased a Toyota GT-One and became airborne two turns before Indianapolis, somersaulting and landing over the barriers into the trees, all on worldwide live TV. The crowd in the Le Mans grandstands was terrified, seeing the pictures on large screens without hearing any comment for a long time. No injuries were sustained in this incident."
