David Coulthard catches speeding golf ball at 120 mph in Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG

From AB
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.

He's hardly an "legend" and his DTM performance is more leg end than anything!
