An unfortunate accident happened yesterday in Dresden. The Wiesmann MF4 GT you see in the pictures was travelling along in the rain when it lost traction, veered into oncoming traffic and caused a collision. The unfortunate oncoming car was a classic Mercedes-Benz 560SL which hit the passenger side door leaving three people seriously injured.

The 47-year-old driver of the Wiesmann was critically injured and had to be resuscitated at the scene and the Mercedes driver and her passenger also suffered serious injuries. The road had to be closed for a period to allow for the wreckage too be cleared. As you’ll see from the photos, both cars look to be a total loss.


The Wiesmann in question appears to be one of twenty limited edition 20th Anniversary cars. It features a number of unique options including the quilted leather and its gloss black paintjob. The 560SL is rare as it features a 5.6 liter V8 with 272hp, an engine that Mercedes-Benz only fitted to USA, Australia and Japan exports.

Thanks to Alexander for the tip.
