The agonizing downward spiral of civilization continues; you saw a Mercedes-Benz W126 coupe sacrificed to China’s hunger for scrap steel, and now there’s this even cooler Benz coupe counting the minutes until it, too, gets crushed. At least some of this car’s parts will live on.

Back when Mercedes-Benz products were known for incredible build quality— yeah, it’s been a while— most of the marque’s customers went for sensible four-door machinery; if you wanted a sporty Benz, why, you picked up a shiny new R107. That makes the beautiful W126 coupes quite rare today.

This one, located in a Denver self-service wrecking yard, appears to have suffered a small engine fire, but otherwise seems fairly solid. Why, Car Gods, why?
