Here's one off-road challenge that proved too much for a brand new £80,000 Range Rover.
The luxury 4x4 - with less than 500 miles on the clock - was written off when it left the road and became wedged on its side between a wall and a basement.
Incredibly, witnesses said the driver and three female passengers escaped unscathed from the crash near Oxford Street in central London.
The Range Rover Sport left the road and smashed through metal railings before becoming stuck at the bottom of a 14-foot drop.
The car was eventually pulled out a few hours later. But the roof was wrecked and the car appeared to be destined for the scrap yard.
Another witness added:
The Metropolitan Police said the incident was not a police matter and they would not be investigating.
