F1 legend Michael Schumacher's return to the sport has made waves, especially the switch to Mercedes-Benz from his long-running stint with Ferrari on- and off-track. Now Mercedes-Benz is leveraging his massive star power in a revised version its 2010 SLS AMG commercial, featuring a full 360-degree tunnel flip.
Brilliantly orchestrated and fantastically entertaining, the video shows the SLS AMG taking to a hillside tunnel, modified with launch and landing ramps, and driving a full corkscrew across the walls and ceiling before smoothly landing. Even though it's almost certainly a computer-generated stunt, it's no less impressive.
Schumacher appears to have been added to the segment after the fact, visible only after stopping the car and removing his helmet. Whatever the case, and as marketing-driven as it may be, it's still worth a watch as you get ready for the 2010 F1 season.
