A man in Argentina ordered a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG and paid about three-fourth of a million dollars to get this stunning vehicle. He was waiting for his purchased to be delivered. But when his dream car arrived, it was nothing less than a nightmare. The car was very messy. He was informed that the three containers, one of which housed his Mercedes Benz SLS AMG, fell from the transporter into the wide ocean during shipment.
It has been reported that the container was retrieved after five days and later it was hung out to dry in the sun for another five days. However, the ocean water has done its damage to the interiors of the car as well as its electric components.
