Former Formula 1 racing driver David Coulthard set a new world record with the help of a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster, by catching a golf ball hit by pro-golfer Jake Shepherd while driving the car. The 178mph golf ball was caught 275 metres from the tee, showcasing the speed of the vehicle and setting a new Guinness World Record for the ‘furthest golf shot caught in a moving car.’
