Quite sorry to hear about the incident but very very glad to know everyone is Okay. It does sound like the 55 may be a "total loss". Perhaps you can salvage the Ultraleggeras and the E55 air box and components from the rear of the car, e.g. rear lamp assemblies (left and right), smoked third brake light, roof parititon and its hinge pins, NAV.
An adult moose is a LARGE animal.
How does the front end look?
I've seen some form of "moose whistle" driven by air (I think attached to the vehicle) that WalMart sells. I don't know if this would have been effective to prevent such incidents.
