Actually the car was never bought. It was on the top of a car hauler on the way to the dealer when the overpass wasnt tall enough.  It was a 4 door sedan

juicy juicy parts!!
I want to know who was allowed to put almost 7 miles on it pre sale?
It better have been AMG themselves
I mean who's gonna buy a new Benz-o with 6.7 miles on it I'd be like get me one with 0 miles on it then you can have my 200g's
Thank you truck driver, thank you for some outrageous insurance rates we have in this country :)

Thanks for sharing that is awesome

Can we put the power plant into a Ranger?

I'm guessing factory test miles. I see alot of brand new cars with under 10 miles that are factory buy backs. I recently did a 2018 expo not a mark on it other then a leaking windshield with 6 miles

dang
I'm so jealous!!! The best part about your job is you don't have to cobble them back together.
I would love to dismantle all different platforms you can learn so much
If I had a 2018 Explorer for parts with 6 miles on it we might end up with one cool ass 2001 Sport trac

What is salvage-able on that AMG, what parts did you get to save?

Engine transmission front suspension wheels and believe it or not the complete rear suspension. If you look at the top picture the front tires are about 2 feet off the ground and the rear tires are still on the ground. The second picture is after I removed the gas tank and drive shaft. The started to separate at the body seams so I had to cut the rear section off

Pretty unusual indeed.  My bike literally had 0 miles on it.  It was still in the crate, and they built it so I could test ride it.  Somewhere I have a picture of the odo from that test ride lol...
