C63 AMG Burns Like a Marshmallow Because of a Switzer GTR P800

For people who believe in karma, the owner of the Mercedes C63 AMG featured in the following sad story must have done some bad deeds with his car in order to suffer so much.

Especially since the main reason for the total destruction of his vehicle was actually a consequence of him pulling over to help a fellow car owner involved in an accident.

In short, a Switzer-tuned Nissan GTR, the P800 model, rolled of the road during the first annual GG2H rally in California, and the C63 AMG stopped to give a helping hand.

Since this is a Gumball-like rally, it is safe to assume the cars had been going at pretty high speeds, which is why the heated brakes of the AMG apparently made the dry bush around the car to ignite, burning the entire car and a large amount of the nearby hillside.

According to witnesses, all the occupants of the GTR survived with only minor injuries from the roll-over, while the C63 that burned to a crisp obviously didn't have any passengers inside during the fiery moment.
