The monocoque itself is damaged. How well do you think it can be repaired in a Service center?

I pity the unsuspecting person who ends up owning this car. Beware any RS's on sale for "CHEAP"!

Who said the monocoque is damaged???
ive seen the car its only the bumper, body shell is damaged ....driver line in untouched

a monocoque doesnt have a seperate chassis and body shell. its one piece. And just a wild guess here but i tihnk the change of shape might mean it might be damaged

Rubbish - look at the A pillar - it is totaly bent, nothing can be done except a new shell. Unless you chop the roof off like the sahara guy has done for his CRV - nothing else can be done

completely agree. the more powerful these machines get - the more we should practice defensive and responsible driving - its more about the people u can kill than ur own life. Its a little shameful how the motoring community behaves by and large :(
Even around here - people are a shade proud when they mention near misses and 100+ corners etc - you will go over the edge if u always drive there.

That would probably have been caused by his arms flying out of the open sunroof.

I would suggest paying a little more attention to the pictures before being baselessly defensive.
