SLS AMG Roadster + 178mph Golf Ball = “Farthest Golf Shot Caught In A Moving Car” [VIDEOS]

End of May Formula 1 legend and DTM driver David Coulthard successfully managed to catch a golf ball, while driving the Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster at 120mph. The golf ball was hit by Jake Shepherd at 178 mph, enabling it to travel 275metres from the tee, before it landed in the cockpit of SLS AMG Roadster. As a result a new guinness record was born with a title of farthest golf shot caught in a moving car.

At the time of revealing this great stunt no videos were released. Finally Mercedes-Benz UK has released the video footage, showing how it all happened.

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!”
