Gone in 60 seconds?

Try gone in six seconds.

A woman climbed behind the wheel of a beautiful white Mercedes-Benz SUV at an Arlington, Va., dealership last week to take it for a test drive.

But the fun was over in the virtual blink of an eye when she somehow managed to flip the pricey machine over in the parking lot, according to ARLNow.com.

The woman was driving at a high rate of speed and crashed into four other parked cars in the lot, Fox 5 in Washington, D.C. reported.

One of the cars she hit was her own SUV, the TV station reported.

There were four people in the SUV when it rolled over but none were injured, according to the website. The sales consultant who was in the vehicle at the time was reportedly checked by paramedics for a possible back injury.

The only explanation reported for what might have happened is that the woman somehow mixed up the gas pedal with the brake.

Estimated price of the sporty Mercedes-Benz GLE350: $60,000.

Estimated value of this story: Priceless.

The Arlington County Fire Department tweeted photos of the scene.
