The marketing department for Mercedes-Benz just set a weird record to get us all excited about the new SLS AMG Roadster . . . which is a convertible and costs about $200,000.
--They got a British golfer named Jake Shepherd to drive golf balls down a runway . . . while a race car driver tried to catch them at 120 miles an hour.
--They managed to do it on a drive that went 300 yards, which makes it the new Guinness World Record for farthest golf shot caught by a moving car.
