Mercedes SLS AMG takes a serious hit in London
Unlike the Ferrari 458 Italia, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG has certainly proved its mettle out on the streets. Whether it has more careful drivers or just a case of being less prone to accidents, the SLS AMG has so far escaped the car crash headlines of our site.
As far as our memories are concerned, there has only been one other production SLS AMG that has crashed since the car was released a year ago. Unfortunately, we’re going to have to add a second car to that list.
We just unearthed news coming out of London that a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG was involved in a pretty serious crash after colliding with a Vauxhall Astra somewhere in London, England. Details on how the crash transpired are still sketchy at this point, but according to those who witnessed the episode, one vehicle was responsible for the crash for beating a red light, causing the other car to lose control and smash into it.
Pictures are indeed worth 1,000 words and judging from the photo we obtained, it looks like the SLS AMG looks pretty dinged up after the whole incident.
