Short video clip takes aim at the Scandinavian "moose test" with the Toyota GT86.
Different countries and regions have their own safety standards. In Scandinavia, one of the most important evaluations a new vehicle can undergo is the Moose Test. The procedure involves evading an imaginary elk on the road - a common issue in those northern Europe. Most passenger cars pass the test just fine, yet some SUVs have trouble performing what comes down to an emergency lane-change maneuver without tipping over. But you'd expect the Toyota GT86 to pass the test just fine, right?
With the lowest center of gravity in the industry, the flat-handling sportscar (also know as the Subaru BRZ or Scion FR-S) should be able to handle just about anything you could throw at it, but this video begs to differ, in its own funny way. The clip is all of nineteen seconds long, but is sure to make you laugh.
