Bad Ass Cars !

No amount of bad press could rock our boat !
The 50 most infamous cars , wow so many Benz's how cool .
Now in the case of some of these cars here that might be putting it a bit too strongly, after all, it was often the person behind the wheel that was to blame for the reputation attached to the car. Nevertheless we have put together a list of 50 cars that have, perhaps, captured the public’s imagination for all the wrong reasons. Whether by accident, design, or even bad design, the cars we have selected will remain in the public eye for years to come
Ava Gardner's 300SL: By her own admission a terrible driver, Gardner came to grief in the notoriously twitchy 300SL Gullwing. Losing control on a bend in Spain, the car ran up and embankment and rolled twice. The Hollywood actress was helped out through the windscreen as with the car on its roof, the doors wouldn’t open.
Alfred Herrhausen was the chairman of the Deutsche Bank – the cornerstone of German capitalism. Using a sophisticated infra-red triggered bomb in a bicycle, terrorists blew him up in his armoured Mercedes S-Class in November 1989. It is thought that the hard-left Red Army Faction was responsible – but no one has ever been charged.
The remnants of a Mercedes-Benz S280 after the most infamous car crash in history that killed Princess Diana, Dodi Fayed, and driver Henri Paul in August 1997. Paul was three times over the drink-driving limit when he drove into a pillar in a Paris tunnel at around 70mph.
Hitting disturbed air in the wake of another car caused the Mercedes to get airborne, fortunately landing on its wheels among trees beside the track.
Mercedes-Benz CLR: The aerodynamics of modern racing cars are very finely balanced, sometimes too much so as Mark Webber’s spectacular 1999 Le Mans crash showed
Adolf Hitler would tour his European conquests in a giant Mercedes-Benz 770K supercharged convertible like this. He apparently loved cars – though he could not even drive. At the end of the catastrophic war that he started, the tanks of his motor fleet were drained to provide the petrol to burn his body amidst the ruins of Berlin.
