    Wrecked E500... anyone recognize it?

    Someone sent me the attached screenshot of some social medias (Faceplant?). Anyone recognize it? Looks like it may be across the pond somewhere.

    Ouch.

    Valerian is a serious Benz-head somewhere in France. I think that he works at a dealer or MB France.

    Yes, it's a French car. In south of France.
    A young driver (20 years old approximately) was too optimist after karting race.

    No idea.
    I know that cooling pump was broken but the engine start and run fine.
    It seem, pretty difficult to repair it.

    I think you’re confusing Valerian with Jelmerian, no?

    May I ask is your friend contributing to the cost of repairs or an insurance company? Because in many instances when someone drives another car they have 3rd party coverage only......

    It is great to hear the car will be repaired and I hope you locate all parts required.

    Front fenders are still available new, but they're not cheap. Great to hear you will be fixing it.

    And yeah, make sure your "friend" pays for a chunk of it!

    friend --> <-- you
