It looks like Mercedes has one less AMG E63 to burn at their "AMG Challenge" events. We just received these two shots and the following anonymous tip:

"Just got confirmation that this vehicle was wrecked by a participant at an AMG Challenge event while at Cal Speedway this weekend in Fontana. Occured towards the end of the event when participants are permitted to "push the vehicle a bit more" with a right seat instructor riding shotgun. Word on the street via the participant is 160mph entering the turn, 130mph into the wall."

DISCUSSION

The horror of hitting the wall in that Caddy must have been intense.

Passenger:

Hey you need to turn the car...

Yeah, little more...

Keep 'er going....

Seriously dude, make the turn.

Alright, guess I'm going to have to do it...

*reaches over

You're surprisingly spry for an old guy...

Come on now, the wall is getting closer...

Do you have a death wish?

You're gonna have to speed up for that...

Alright, whatever, it's not my Caddy.

*wakes up

What the hell dude, would you just hit the wall already.

Why do you have your turn signal on? There is nobody else on the track, and it's only one lane.

Oh brother forget this.
