The Mercedes SLS AMG packs a power punch…one that can be a challenge to control! Check out the aftermath of a power check in China. A driver in Liupanshui lost control of the Gullwing, nailed a curb and catapulted into a pond, upside down. China boasts a vast population…therefore, this little number was online within seconds.
While the photos look gruesome, no one was seriously injured. The Mercedes Gullwing has an incredible safety feature that many are unaware of: A mechanism simply blows the hinges off the doors in situations like this, allowing the driver and occupants to exit to safety. How James Bond! Does Aston Martin know about this?
