Famous British magician Dynamo has recently taken David Coulthard on a spin in the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, blindfolded.
Mercedes-Benz has released a new video which is showing magician Dynamo and former Formula One driver David Coulthard together, in an SL63 AMG. Coulthard has set a lap time of 38.57 seconds on a specially made track and then Dynamo tried to beat it, using a blindfold. Even if he didn’t beat Coulthard’s time, Dynamo was still able to predict his lap time.
“As the latest instalment in a series of challenges which sees Mercedes-Benz UK put David Coulthard to the test, this is by far the most daring yet. The SL 63 AMG is a hugely impressive car, so it really is the perfect fit to have as the starring role as part of such an astonishing feat”, said the Mercedes-Benz UK marketing director, Andrew Mallery.
The car used is a Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG, from the new generation, which is using the M157 twin turbocharged 5.5 liter V8 engine, producing a total output of 529 HP. The 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in the sports car takes just 4.2 seconds. Average fuel consumption is 28.5 mpg and CO2 emissions stop at 231 g/km.
