Not lifting clear of the ground though Tom merely righting the truck different kettle of fish mate. I have a 10,000 pound rated front winch on my truck that's roughly 4 and a bit ton, the cable is rated at 6 ton so the motor would die before the cable theoretically.
Also the crane is directly over the fallen behemoth so lifting angle is making the weight less of a challenge, and it's on five wheels apposed to all ten i imagine.

Simulation i think Chris, we had one of our old cars die on us a few years ago and donated it to the fire service for practice/training sessions.

Paul's correct, Chris -- I took this shot at a training event for firefighters. However, I believe that that this was a fairly accurate recreation of an actual accident in which a concrete mixer rolled onto a passenger car.
