An 82-year old man calls a Mercedes-Benz service and asks someone to come quickly to where he is, because he feels something terribly wrong is going on with his car. There is this sound at the rear and the car keeps side-slipping.
But once they get in the passenger’s seat in the old man’s Mercedes-AMG C 63 S Estate, the technicians get the scare of their lives. Because the crazy old man behind the wheel of the fireball is none other than the former rally champion Petter Solberg, wearing make up to look double his age!
The young technicians have no idea and are scared to death to see the driver’s hands are trembling and that he can hardly hear what he is told. As you might have guessed, it’s just an act, because Solberg’s hands are always touching the right spots on the wheel and his feet get the right pedals at the right time to make the passengers feel as if they are riding a roller coaster. The former Norwegian champion drives it as it should be driven.
The car is powered by the all-famous V8 delivering 510 HP and getting from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. As for Petter Solberg, he is powered by the 460 stages that he won as a rally pro driver. Solberg warns drivers: Please, don’t try this at home!
