Short Answer. Yes.
So did you know that that the Mercedes-Benz CLA makes a terrible submarine? Probably right? Well we figured the same thing, but apparently this lady in the Chinese city of Wuxi didn’t get the memo. When moving her parked car out of a parking spot near one of the city’s canals, she accidentally slipped the automatic gearbox into reverse instead of drive. As a result she sent the vehicle flying backwards into the canal and was the first person ever to test the CLA’s submarine capabilities.
Needless to say, the results were unsurprisingly bad. The unlucky test pilot escaped through the roof of her car and rescue workers threw her a life line to escape to dry land. Check out these pics of the terrible ordeal. All photos courtesy of Car News China.
