That sucks. I wonder if the roof was found that way or did they just plop it on top afterwards.

Looks as though one of the only undamaged parts on the entire car is that handsome R171 whip antenna!

I feel bad for saying this, but I keep thinking of parts I might want to scavenge.

Seems like the foglights got spared...

Funny that, seeing as many report theirs being broken from time to time [?]

Ouch!
That is one messed up SLK. I wonder what the story is with the driver and exactly what he/she was doing to lose control and roll like that.

I hope the driver wasn't anyone we know from the forum....[:(]

It looks like the passenger compartment was largely spared....

My guess for the damage is this thing you call 'Valet Parking'? in the States. Perhaps this is why Valet Parking has not really taken off here in the UK!

haha, Maybe it was a little road rage with a mining dozer? the slk does make you feel like you can take on the world.

Seems that this new-fangled Nano-technology scratch resistant paint finish only offers 'limited' protection to your SLK!

Actually that is a new color MB is testing called Marbled Chocolate Metallic. For those who don't like to wash it does a much better job of hiding dirt and road film than Iridium Silver.

480hpSLK55 - 4/4/2006 4:10 AM

found these on the web tonight, lost control and rolled 3-4 times into a field
Any idea one can physically locate some of these crashed SLK55s ? I am in need of a fog lamp lens because it is crazy to pay $180 to replace the whole lamp when I need only the lens. [:)]
