Brand New Mercedes SLS AMG Fell Off The Boat While Being Shipped

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!”
