Crash worthiness

Relaxing after a plentiful Christmas day brunch, I meandered over to Wrecked Exotics and started flipping through "Bad crashes." After seeing a couple hundred shots it seems (and I know this collection might not be representative) that coupes, and particularly the luxury or performance coupes, seem to be the best life insurance. Well, that and common sense it takes to not exceed the limits of what you can handle. So that shot of the crashed Merc coupe (I think it's an S? Anyone?) kinda had me sold. Look at how A and B pillars are not even bent. And the thing came resting on its roof. Guess I might want to consider a car with B pillars next time I'm in the market.
