Last night renowned magician, Dynamo, stunned Formula One™ legend David Coulthard by completing a blindfolded, fire-laden run in a Mercedes-Benz SL 63 AMG… impressive in itself, but it proved to be a prelude to a much bigger mindreading feat.
The specially created circuit was first driven by David Coulthard, who set the lap pace of 38.57 seconds. Dynamo then attempted to beat the time whilst blindfolded, with parts of the track set on fire, and with David in the passenger seat.
Getting around the track unscathed was impressive enough to David, but the real awe came when Dynamo revealed the true outcome in the never-seen-before challenge – Dynamo had correctly predicted and spelt out David’s guess of his lap time, 1:25, in flames, across the track.
Andrew Mallery, Marketing Director at Mercedes-Benz UK, said: “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.”
The thrilling spectacle premiered last night (1st August) on Watch during the final episode of ‘Dynamo: Magician Impossible’ and can be viewed, on www.DynamoVCoulthard.com
