Usually when a wrecked car's damage cost estimate exceeds half its worth, it's totaled out by the insurance company and either parted out or sold with a branded title. In Russia, it's a little different. Even cars with catastrophic frame damage—such as this 7-Series—are repaired and resold regularly.
Arthur Tussik is famous for his ability to repair cars with major chassis damage that would otherwise be sent to the junkyard. Through a collection of hydraulic and hand tools, he disassembles each car and bends the frame back into place, often cutting pieces out and welding them back together. For this particular BMW, he goes as far as removing the roof, left-side door frames, and left-side quarter panels to make sure everything is lined up nicely.
While the finished product may seem good as new, the structural rigidity this 7-Series once had is obviously compromised. Think of it like a piece of paper: You can crumple it up and then try to lay it out flat, but you'll never be able to get the paper as smooth and as wrinkle-free as it once was.
Still, it's impressive to see Tussik take a completely totaled car and make it seem like nothing ever happened. Watch for yourself below.
