We knew the Fireball Run was going to be full of surprises but no one was expecting to see a pair of prototypes turn up on the very first day. In truth, this pair of 2012 Mercedes-Benz SLK prototypes wasn’t actually part of the event but just so happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The prototypes were spotted at a gas station in Las Vegas and High Gear Media editors Joel and Nelson managed to take a few quick snaps before the cars darted away. From the facial expressions of the German engineers testing the cars--and the pace at which they exited the gas station--we can only surmise that they weren’t too happy to be photographed.
