So I was on my way to the gas station to get some gas and go ahead and buy some tickets to the new 007 movie. While I was in the median waiting to turn into the gas station a Mercedes E class older one comes at me about 25-35 miles an hour. Im surprise at how well the Lotus held up and I am so happy to be alive thank God!

So maybe if your car was a brighter color the guy in the Mercedes would have seen you?!! Glad you're OK, but what was the other guy doing?

Another lotus gone :(

Man they just drove straight up the front of your car. I think I might break down in tears if someone hit me like that!

Man that sucks. That had to have been terrifying seeing that beast ramp straight up your windshield. Glad you're ok.

Post the VIN.

I'm sure the "part-out" scavengers will hit this thread soon.

That's insane! People are such bad drivers.
Glad you came out unharmed!
Good luck with insurance and with the search for the replacement.

Oh my. I'm glad you are OK.

Here's how this should go... Insurance payment for the total - buy back cost + your spare time disassembling everything usable + payments for parted out bits = new Lotus for you.

good to hear u r okay

After the fact I would have got a big truck and ran them over, due to the fact that their vehicle is fine and can be repaired and ur vehicle is done and the insurance will low ball you. Even if they have enough insurance to cover ur vehicle you will be pissed when they offer you a low check for ur vehicle. Good luck how did they not see u what they thought you were a yellow light.
