ML falls 5-story fall in Brabus ML and survives

This is a cool article with lots of pics of a Brabus tuned ML that fell 5-floors and landed on it's roof, yet the female driver survived.

Yep, lucky for sure. Could have easily gone the other way.

I wonder if it was a real Brabus. Those exhaust tips look a little fishy and the bumper and diffuser isn't right. Lots of badges and posers around that part of the world.

uhhh Hi, yeah -- did she really need to be driving in a car like that?

For God's sakes, she doesnt need that kind of power.


I'm happy to see, however that the Mercedes kept her safe ---and gave her the benefits despite her stupidity and incompetence. Because in the end, life is what matters the most.


I'm also happy to see that the Prada goodies which she purchased using hubby's American Express card seem intact as well. Still standing upright and in the seat, look at that!

interior doesnt look much different than my old 2000 ML320....I always thought the 55 AMG and the Brabus cars had dark wood and carbon fiber treatment here and there.

im not denying....but im just taken aback a bit

That was her lucky day for sure! I'm still very impressed that the roof did not totally collapsed, it goes to show that the cars are built right.
