The Land Cruiser was verry verry hungry and wanted to feel good!

Nice to hear nobody suffered anything serious!

Looks like the owner ran out of parking space, and decided to pamper his ride with some McDs and air conditioning.

Default S500 Mangled wreck

Q: What happens when you run an S500 into a lamp post at over 180kmph?

A: Road Accidents in Dubai - Pics-carnage.jpg


The car was turned into a wreckage. By the time the medics reached the spot, the driver was already crushed to death and the medics had to cut portions of the car with special machinery to get the driver's body out.

PS: Sorry for picture quality.

Given the speed, I think that the rear held up well. 180+ kmph is a very high speed and usually very few survive. Also the angle at which crash takes place is the main deciding factor of the outcome.

180 is what the paper published,,its actually said to be much higher than that.The Flag ship Merc could have been better.
Close sources say he actually had a quick nap and this happened. This Bahraini was a good guy as and actually has some good, fast and luxury cars.I have sold him a 300c SRT which he supercharged later on.
Let him R.I.P :(
