Η Mercedes-Benz έκανε νέο παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ Guinness όπου ένα αυτοκίνητο κυνηγά ένα μπαλάκι του golf. Πίσω από το τιμόνι της SLS AMG Roadster κάθισε ο David Coulthard ενώ το μπαλάκι του χτύπησε ο επαγγελματίας παίκτης του golf, Jake Shepherd.

Ο Coulthard έπιασε τα 193 χλμ/ώρα ενώ το μπαλάκι του golf έπιασε ταχύτητα 286 χλμ/ώρα ταξιδεύοντας 275 μέτρα προτού τελικά προσγειωθεί μέσα στη καμπίνα της ανοικτής SLS AMG. Μάλιστα οι δύο τους το έκαναν και δεύτερη φορά ώστε επιβεβαιώσουν το ρεκόρ. Το ρεκόρ κινηματογραφήθηκε και το video θα βγει στον αέρα τον Ιούλιο.

SLS AMG + 178MPH GOLF BALL = WORLDS’ FARTHEST GOLF SHOT CAUGHT IN A MOVING CAR 

Formula 1™ legend and DTM driver David Coulthard and professional golfer Jake Shepherd set a Guinness World Record yesterday (30 May 2012) at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, as part of a viral film for Mercedes-Benz UK.

David, who was driving the awesome 571hp Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster at 120mph, caught a golf ball in the cockpit of the moving car which was 275 metres from the tee, and hit by Jake at an astonishing 178mph. This amazing achievement secured the world record for the furthest golf shot caught in a moving car in only the second attempt of the day.

The outstanding feat of skill was captured on film and will be launched in early July to celebrate the power of the SLS AMG Roadster which, thanks to its AMG hand-assembled M 159 V8 engine, rockets to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds.

David Coulthard said: “This world record attempt is definitely one of the most unusual things I’ve ever been asked to do with a car! Jake Shepherd was great to work with and the performance of the SLS AMG Roadster made driving to catch a mid-air golf ball even more exciting. I am honoured to have received the Guinness World Record for the furthest golf shot caught in a car.”

David George,Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars Marketing Director, concluded: “We thought we’d do something exciting to celebrate this special car, and our association with golf ahead of the upcoming Open Championship. It was great to set a new world record in the process thanks to an amazing effort from David and Jake.”
