Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG gets crashed in Colombia

High speed has “injured” this impressive Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG as the supercar was being driven in Colombia’s capital, Bogota.

Most exotic car crashes can be blamed on high speed and the driver’s lack of experience and this latest one is in the same category too. According to the guys at Wrecked Exotics, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG pictured above was going at high speed when it lost control of the wheel. The German supercar eventually crashed into the guardrail and came to a stop. Occupants walked away uninjured, which is more than we can say about the SLS AMG. The incident took place in Bogota, Colombia.

Mercedes-Benz has produced the SLS AMG between 2010 and 2014 and this was offered in a two-door coupe or a two-door roadster body style. The supercar has a front mid-engine and a rear-wheel drive layout, standing in at 4,638 mm long, 1,939 mm wide and 1,252 mm tall (coupe) / 1,262 mm tall (roadster). Power is being provided by a 6.2 liter V8 engine, developed by AMG, producing 563 HP (420 kW) and 650 Nm (479 lb-ft) of torque. The unit is connected to a 7-speed sports AMG SPEEDSHIFT DCT transmission. The 0 to 100 km/h sprint is made in over 3 seconds and top speed stands at 328 km/h (204 mph).
