Car accelerating at speed whilst braking

I have a 3 year old SLK 200 AMG automatic with 10,000 Miles on the clock. Today I drove into my drive with foot on the brake pedal ready to stop when the car suddenly accelerated at speed only stopping when it hit the wall of my house. This happened once before whilst in an empty car park luckily causing no damage and I honestly thought it was something I had done wrong? Today I had a passenger and they can verify what happened. The damage to the car is severe but even when repaired I am too scared to get behind the wheel. Has this happened to anyone else?

Are you sure it's a R171?

It’s an SLK 200. I have no idea what a R171 is?

It can't be 3 years old if it's a R171. You're in the wrong group
