The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG newspaper ad in India reads – it has a cockpit, two wings (gullwing doors), and a fiery engine, but it still runs on roads – is ought to be slightly changed for the ones in Argentina. Hence, for the Argentineans it could be – it has a cockpit, two wings (gullwing doors), and a fiery engine, but it still can’t run on “water”! That said because, the brand new Mercedes SLS AMG ordered by an Argentinean fallen off a ship in which it was being transported. Argentinean owner waited patiently for the $700,000 sports car to make its way over from Germany via shipping container. But the accident had also sunk his aspirations down of being the owner of a Star logoed super car. The car was a 19th SLS in the entire country, and it was a rare white color.
Hopefully, it would have been completely devastating for him after days to receive a call by the salesman that says, “uhh, sorry, but your car fell off the ship!”
The good part of the story says the company recovered lost container after five days! Just as expected, the Mercedes was turned into a complete loss, was filled with water in every nooks and corner. The accident actually happened last June, but the photos have only just now made to online media.
