Info on salvaged VS96533

Anyone here have any info on this newly salvaged beauty. It's a VO with the VIN VS96533 up in the Northeast (NJ).
Took quite a spill. Any info is welcomed, hopefully it'll help someone out.

To know the original specs:

It was a VO for the US, built on September 10, 2011 and loaded with many options.

To know what has happened, when and the unfortunate aftermath, you got to check reports and alike.

Hi Atremis, thank you for the heads up. I'm more interested in trying to figure out what or how it was damaged. The front passenger side suspension/wheel/fender is messed up/gone. As is the front bumper. The rear has also taken a hit and the rear suspension is so low it looks like a low rider and the rear tail pipes can't be seen (like they've been ripped off). The drivers rear quarter panel also took a hit.
It's a hefty prang. Oh, and we won't go into how the inside looks, thats another story.

Thank you for your insight though.

I saw this car on craigslist. Check it out if you are looking specifically for a salvaged car. I can check the car for you if you are serious about it.

That looks like the the one from the New York area that was bought by a forum member here and then returned to the used car dealer for a refund. There was undisclosed roof and front frame damage.
Buyer Beware!!!!
