SLS AMG + 178MPH GOLF BALL = WORLDS' FARTHEST GOLF SHOT CAUGHT IN A
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
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.
