Apparently they are also indestructible

Eight SLRs are in Cape Town for the press launch at the V&A Waterfront%u2019s Cape Grace Hotel on Wednesday. Around 140 international motoring journalists have been test driving the vehicle in the city, according to the daily.

The SLR, with a top speed of 334 kilometres per hour, has a supercharged Mercedez-enz AMG 5.5-litre V8, and takes 3.8 seconds to accelerate to 100 kilometres per hour.Apperantley it is also indestrutable

McLaren supercar hit by VW Golf
Posted Wed, 19 Nov 2003

The new R4-million McLaren Mercedes Benz SLR, brought from Germany to Cape Town for an official launch, was hit by a VW Golf while being test driven in the city on Tuesday.

According to witnesses cited by the Cape Times, the Golf "sped through a red light" and hit the SLR, a left-hand drive, on the front right-hand side.

The Cape Times reports the 1700kg SLR, which is made of immensely strong carbon fibre and has intelligent crumple zones, sustained minimal damage. The Golf had to be towed away.

WOW!

I'd love to see more after pics of that...that's pretty fucking amazing.

The VW driver probably just shot himself in the face as soon as he got out to see what he'd just hit...

(or he waited and shot himself in the face later in the day when his insurance agent told him what he had just hit) ;)
