Now this is a very cool piece of video content from Mercedes-Benz. Enlisting the help of Former Formula 1 racing driver David Coulthard and pro-golfer Jake Shepherd they have set a new Guinness World Record.

Driving the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster, David Coulthard caught a golf ball (hit by Jake Shepherd) while driving the car. The ball was travelling at 178mph and was caught 275 metres from the tee, setting the record for the ‘furthest golf shot caught in a moving car.’ What a great way to showcase the speed of the vehicle and has already had over 1 million views on YouTube. This stunt required a special black golf ball so that Coulthard could see it travelling through the air. Check out the viral video above ‘The Catch’ and the making of video below.
