Highways are nothing short of a place where one can get hidden ticket to the mighty God above. All thanks to all kinds of creatures coming on the road without seeing left or right or changing lanes without realising what the traffic is.

Looks a minimal damage for a 80kph crash, Your friend is indeed lucky for his minor injuries and the considerably less damage to his beemer.

Default CLS 63 AMG DESTROYED at Amby Valley

OD had taken the car for a test and, as any petrolhead would, the AMG was being ripped on the awesome Amby Valley stretch. Details aren't clear, but apparently the car was overcooked in a left-hander and crashed!

Someone from Merc says that the damage is right up to the firewall. I'm glad no one was injured, though that's one less AMG on our roads. Unfortunate.

AMG ain't giving out any TD cars now

My Goodness! Very unfortunate.

The least that the driver could have done is to have been Careful !

I seriously wonder what these automags are trying to do when they do those test drives and write reviews about car ??

each one is just trying to keep driving home the theme that they are BIGGER PETROL heads than the other guy and in the process most of the car reviews these days are just a mix of ego boost for the JOURNO and exercising his ENGLISH LANGUAGE skills

there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING MATERIAL ABOUT THE CAR they write about these days

to top it - they go and crash the cars.

Am surprised that they gave them unsupervised after the 17yr old trashed the SLK in Delhi.

Who cooked it ? Sirish or Bert

Got this news when we were on the plant on the weekend. Thats why we were restricted to driving the AMGs on in the plant premises. A big loss as told to us by the people at Mercedes.
