Τα video ετοιμάστηκαν και τώρα μπορούμε να δούμε το νέο παγκόσμιο ρεκόρ Guinness που έκανε η Mercedes-Benz 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.

ASTONISHING FILM FROM MERCEDES-BENZ CAPTURES GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FARTHEST HOLE IN ONE

571hp SLS AMG Roadster, provided the ultimate ‘did that really happen?’ moment for Mercedes-Benz UK.

Captured on film which was released today, www.youtube.com/mercedesbenzuk, the SLS AMG Roadster landed the record of ‘farthest golf shot to be caught in a moving car, ever’. Professional golfer Jake Shepherd hit a golf ball at 178mph into the Mercedes-Benz supercar, which was moving at a rate of120mph when it caught the ball 275 metres away from the tee.

The extraordinary film shows the exact moment when David Coulthard caught the speeding golf ball between the seats of the SLS AMG Roadster. Speaking about the astonishing catch, Coulthard said: “The only way to track the ball was to keep your eyes on it all the time: it’s a real adrenaline rush but it’s not the most comfortable thing to do because for a moment, you’re not watching the road!

He continued: “I was as happy as I’ve ever been winning a Grand Prix because I was so surprised quite frankly that it went in, and went in so solidly!”

The amazing feat was not only caught on camera, but also independently verified by a Guinness World Record adjudicator who confirmed the unbelievable achievement secured the title of farthest golf shot caught in a moving car.

David George, Mercedes-Benz Passenger Cars Marketing Director, added: “The SLS AMG Roadster is an extraordinary car so we wanted to do something extraordinary with it to celebrate our association with the upcoming Open Championship, and what better way than to break a world record and create such an exciting film!”
