Sad! – Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Abandoned Since 2011

So, I’ve been sick for the past few days, meaning I haven’t driven around at all. In fact, I didn’t drive my car for two days straight. When I finally got back to my car, I legitimately felt bad leaving my car sitting there for two days without being used. Sure, two days isn’t a lot compared to those who leave their cars parked at their holiday homes for months on end. Even still, I felt bad.

Now, imagine that my car wasn’t a Ford Mustang and it was a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren and instead of two days, it was six years. My ownership of such a car may be fictional, but the fact that a car this magnificent has been untouched for six years is complete non-fiction.

Back in 2010, Magazín ProDriver CZ photographed a white SLR McLaren at an impound lot. Now, in 2017, they’ve photographed the same exact car in the same exact impound lot completely untouched. Now that’s sad.

According to, this car was confiscated as part of a theft inquiry that involved a leasing company. Because of the situation, the car cannot be sold or touched until the police investigation is complete.
