F1 driver David Coulthard has become quite the spokesperson for the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG model, recently catching a 178-mph golf ball in an SLS AMG Roadster model. Now Coulthard has taken the new SLS AMG GT out onto the Nürburgring GP track to see how it performs.
Probably best well known for his role in the Mission: Impossible movies, Tom Cruise is a versatile actor, going from action packed scenes to showing us the money in Jerry Maguire not to mention pretty much every role in between. And even though his act of hopping up and down Oprah’s couch may have been a little questionable, there’s no questioning Mr. Cruise’s DNA for thrilling action.
Cruise took a break from filming his newest Mission: Impossible flick to take on some real world thrills with Red Bull. He headed out to Southern California’s Willow Springs raceway, and after chatting it up with F1 star David Coulthard, got behind the wheel of his F1 race car to see what he’s made of. And the results are pretty impressive, with Cruise hitting 181-mph on the 2.5-mile track, just 4-mph shy of the 13-time Grand Prix winner, Coulthard – who was also his instructor.
And if that wasn’t thrilling enough for Cruise, he decided to do some stunt flying in Red Bull’s helicopter, further proof that he’s a thrill seeker on and off the Hollywood camera.

Mercedes-Benz DTM driver and 2001 runner up to the Formula 1 World Championship, David Coulthard, has been announced as the new AMG brand ambassador. The 40-year-old driver will be an active participant in customer and press events for AMG, and will also lend his driving expertise to AMG’s development team in their test driving activities.
Once upon a time having a movie, film or video in HD was cool enough. Now you’re just not cutting it unless it’s in the wonderful world of 3D. For those that have witnessed Avatar on the big screen in 3D, you know that movie-watching has been changed forever and perhaps entertainment in general. Hell, even Nintendo’s upcoming hand held video game system will feature 3D (Nintendo 3DS) without the use of glasses.
The premise of this flick is to make the ‘World’s Fastest 3D Film’ which means enlisting the aid of Mercedes-Benz‘s SLS AMG and ex-Formula 1 driver David Coulthard. Toss in some helicopters, some expensive 3D cameras and some beautiful scenery and we’ve got magic in the making.
The film is 4 minutes and 2 seconds long and will be shown in Sky 3D abroad. When it’ll hit the States (if ever) we’re not sure, but we’re hoping we’ll be able to one day feast our eyes on the finished product in 3D, the way it was meant to be seen.
Make sure to check out the two videos after the break, in 2D naturally.
