What Happens When You Put A Car Into Reverse While Doing 70 MPH?

Do not be dumb enough to try this with your own car.

Putting a car into reverse while driving on the freeway is one of the dumbest things you can do. In an older car you’re virtually guaranteed to destroy the transmission. But what about in a newer model?

YouTuber AutoVlog decided to risk it all—“all” being his Ford Fusion—in an attempt to answer that very question. While doing 70 mph on a public highway he threw his Fusion into neutral and then reverse. The result, well let’s just say it was underwhelming.

Trust us, that’s not a spoiler in the least. You should still watch this clip though, if only to see the look on this YouTuber’s face when he first attempts the stunt.
