From the article:
The incident happened in June 2013 but only now images with the damaged SLS were published by Argentinian media. After paying Mercedes-Benz the equivalent of 710,000 USD for a white SLS AMG, a man patiently waited for his car to be delivered but unfortunately never got it as something went horrible wrong during transportation.

Price seems a bit stiff - these cars are only US$420k in Oz.

Should have put it in a big bag of rice for a few days :laughing6:
Far as the price goes, they may have a lot of taxes and such in Argentina :dontknow:
It's only 376k here before the gubberment puts out their hand.
However a tad cheaper in de US of A at 221k http://www.mbusa.com/mercedes/vehicles/ ... ystyle-CPE
