Mechanic Takes Chauffeur's Mercedes For Joy Ride

Posted on April 6, 2016

A chauffeur from Charfield in the United Kingdom is considering legal action against a garage after his dash cam picked up footage of a mechanic taking his £40,000 Mercedes for a joy ride.

The video, uploaded to Youtube by David Argust, shows a mechanic driving dangerously and breaking the speed limit nine times while taking the new E300 AMG out of a spin.

Since the release of the video, the garage, a branch of Sytner Mercedes in Bristol, has told Mr Argust he is no longer welcome at any of their centres.
