The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S and Audi RS 6 Avant met – and in the end the two cars were wrecks. A short video has surfaced on YouTube showing two high-powered cars colliding with each other. So bittersweet: This accident was completely avoidable!
The 25-second clip kicks off with a 612-hp Mercedes-AMG E 63 S (W 213 pre-facelift) hovering across an empty parking lot – the epitome of “come in the heat”, if you will! While the video quality isn’t that great, it’s noticeable that AMG isn’t that slow either.
There was an accident
When the drift is completely over, the camera moves to the left. And suddenly it all happened very quickly: Like out of nowhere, the C7-generation Audi RS 6 Avant appeared – also diagonally. Then the tires squeal and bang!
The Mercedes-AMG E 63 S could no longer brake in time and chased after the RS 6 on the passenger side. The impact was hard, Audi threw. The RS 6 hazard warning light flashes, the E 63 S starts to smoke, and in the background you can hear someone say: “Oh shit!”
Luckily no injuries
Fortunately, no one seems to be hurt in the crash, as you can see the driver of the RS 6 and the front passenger of the E 63 S exiting immediately after the crash and the AMG driver trying to pull the car aside. Men’s egos definitely got something for it. An explanation to each insurance company will be very interesting.
Since the video is shot remotely, the damage is not clearly visible. But with such an impact, it should easily reach some 10,000 euros.
Even if it sounds more than trite, here’s a note: Such acts should never be done on public roads (or for that matter in parking lots). If you really want to drift, you’ll have to do it on a closed track – because ideally other cars won’t suddenly come there.
