I'm filming a relatively low budget horror film with a few friends, so we don't have any fancy equipment for this. The shot is supposed to be a guy driving then suddenly swerving the car off the road, maybe into a tree or, even better, ending upside down. Is there a good looking way to do this?

If you can record at 5× the normal frame rate, using a 1/25th scale model car will look somewhat realistic. Things that roll over or bounce, or even fall off a cliff, will appear correct.

Yes, it will still look fake and cheesy, but perhaps that's what you want.
