Ouch - Mercedes SLS AMG Involved In Crash

Okay, so if it was any other vehicle, this clearly wouldn't be worthy of news. But according to research I've done, there has only been one other reported crash of the Mercedes SLS AMG!

Details haven't been released on how the crash actually occurred, or who was at fault, but it's safe to say that I died a little inside when I saw this picture from London, England:

For those who aren't acquainted with this gorgeous automobile, it's a "spiritual successor" to the classic Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gullwing and costs about $200,000. 

Here is a non-mangled picture of the Mercedes SLS AMG:

  3. I think I'll buy a $200,000 condo before I buy a $200,000 car. It is very purty though.
