Mercedes-AMG GT S Driver Loses It, Hits The Sole Obstacle In Sight

With an alleged 744 PS (734 hp / 547 kW) available on tap from the tuned twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine, few cars can hold their ground against this Mercedes-AMG GT S.

Unfortunately, a few days ago, the person sitting behind the wheel had an extremely bad day while drag racing a BMW M3 in Germany.

With the traction control likely turned off, the driver of the German supercar pushed the throttle all the way down after hitting the 50 km/h (31 mph) mark. However, the Merc oversteered suddenly and its driver couldn’t catch it.

It was the M3 driver’s quick reaction that saved him from T-boning the tuned Mercedes-AMG GT S. As for the latter, it went across the drag strip and hit a fence, the only obstacle (apart from the BMW) that’s visible from the footage, before coming to a full stop.

Despite sending part of the fence up in the air, the impact didn’t leave many scars on the front end of the AMG GT S. Still, this is a model that starts at €136,855.95 (equal to $156,251) in Germany, in the latest iteration, so repairs are, in all likelihood, going to be costly.

    shame Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Driving is going chapter 11, all these drivers should have applied. Including the drivers who crashed their mustangs at cars and coffee meets. School would have done them some good.

    I mostly earn up to $23,000-$24,000 on a monthly basis from the internet. After working so passionately, I ended up losing my job in my company where I have given lots of years. I really needed a reliable source of income. I am not into “get rich overnight” package deals as you can see all across the net. Those are all kind of ponzi referral marketing programs in which you have to first make interested customers and then sell a product to friends and family members or any person so that they will probably be in your team. online job offers lots of benefits such as I am always home with my family and can cherish lots of leisure time and go out for vacations.
