A Mercedes-AMG E 63 S and an Audi RS 6 Avant meet – and in the end both cars are scrap. A short video has appeared on YouTube showing the two high-powered cars crashing into each other. Particularly bitter: This accident would have been absolutely avoidable!
The 25-second clip begins with a 612-hp Mercedes-AMG E 63 S (W 213 pre-facelift) drifting across an empty parking lot – the epitome of “coming in hot”, if you will! Despite the not exactly outstanding quality of the video, it can be seen that the AMG is not exactly slow.
An accident occurs
When the drift is actually over, the camera pans to the left. And suddenly everything happens very quickly: As if out of nowhere, an Audi RS 6 Avant of the C7 generation comes into the picture – also diagonally. Then tires squeal and a bang!
The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S can no longer brake in time and catches the RS 6 on the passenger side. The impact is violent, the Audi throws around. The hazard warning lights of the RS 6 go on, the E 63 S starts to smoke, and in the background you can hear someone saying: “Oh shit!”
Fortunately there are no injuries
Luckily, no one seems to have been injured in the crash, as you can see the RS 6 driver and the front passenger of the E 63 S getting out immediately after the accident and the AMG driver trying to pull his car to the side. The egos of the men should definitely have gotten something for that. The explanation of the respective insurance companies would be very interesting.
Since the video was taken from a distance, the damage cannot be seen clearly. But with such an impact, it should easily amount to several 10,000 euros.
Even if it sounds more than trite, once again the note: Such actions should not take place on public roads (or in this case in a parking lot). If you absolutely want to drift, you should do it on a closed track – because ideally another car will not come unexpectedly there.
