I know it's necessary for safety, but it always makes me sad to see cars destroyed for crash tests and fire safety testing.

If you look closely, it appears the Model 3 they used in the dash displacement later on in the video had some damage on the sides — it may have already been salvaged or totaled.

At least they made good use of a basically dead vehicle assuming that's true.

Use the sadness as motivation to start a VR project which enables fire fighters to simulate safety training? :)
