That Video Where Matt Tests Whether His “Bulletproof” Mercedes is Bulletproof… By Sitting In it.
Remember Matt’s “bulletproof” Mercedes? You don’t? How dare you. Well, Matt found a 1993 Mercedes S600 “Guard” Edition on CraigsList, and noticed that, for just $2,500, it may be the most depreciated car of all time. But how well did it still function after losing nearly 98% of it’s original MSRP? Well, for starters, it ran and drove. Though the transmission slipped if you used more than 1/4 throttle off the line, with a V12 under the hood, you never really had to use more than 1/4 throttle off the line. Matt and SuperSpeeders’s Rob Ferretti road tripped the big ‘ol Benz to Arizona, home of lax gun laws, in order to find out if the Big Body’s big body was still resistant to gunfire! In order to report accurately, Matt agrees to try the definitive scientific method for testing bulletproof-ness, by being shot at.
