Video: How Not to Drive a Brabus Mercedes-McLaren SLR Roadster Through a Parking Garage

Let’s begin here by saying that the Brabus Mercedes-McLaren SLR Roadster is one of the most awesome cars ever manufactured. A 5.5-liter supercharged V-8 engine pumps out 650 horses gets this machine up to a top speed of 211 mph. Toss in just the sheer awesomness that it’s a Mercedes too, and few can compete.

As much as we love these cars, some of their owners take the privileged to drive one a little too far. We understand and even agree that these cars need their legs stretched out every now and again, but there is a time and place for it. The very last place to stretch out the legs on a 650-horsepower monster is a parking garage.

Well, this outstanding citizen decides to take his (or someone’s) $1 million Mercedes in excess of 90 mph through a parking garage. That’s right, I wouldn’t do half of the top speed of a Geo Metro through a parking garage and this guy is halfway there on a 650-horsepower supercar.

What’s worse is the annoying chucklehead in the passenger’s seat is just laughin’ away like he’s watching a young Jim Carrey movie. Then adding insult to injury, a dinging alarm goes off. What’s that, the a-hole alarm maybe? No, that’s the seatbelt alarm; these guys are doing this idiotic stuff without seatbelts on…

Didn’t these guys think that maybe a kid could come running out from between a few cars? Maybe a person might decide he wants to pull his car out of one of the parking spaces. Really, what exactly goes through the heads of these people before they do things like this?

Ugh, okay enough of my fatherly ranting. Check out the above video to see for yourself. We can say that the in-car audio from the 5.5-liter V-8 is phenomenal, but the idiocy of the two squash-for-brains guys in the car seriously outweighs the impressiveness of the car.
