Mercedes-AMGCar and driver
- We tested the McLaren GT: supercar or Gran Turismo?
- The 20 fastest cars in the world to reach 500 km/h
Between careers of Formula 1, its own business and events with sponsors, Lewis Hamilton hardly has any spare time. But damn it, what a desire to live! ANDAmong the latter, as a Mercedes-AMG driver, you are “forced” to participate in events like the one organized a few weeks ago at the Circuit de Jarama, where the brand celebrated the 55th anniversary of its foundation with a real show . Between us, and a little as an opinion, he doesn’t seem to have had a bad time either…
For starters, David Coulthard acts as master of ceremonies for all the guests, with all the good things that entails, since the ex-pilot is very loose in front of a camera after a long experience in television as a commentator.
It first reviews various AMG icons, then interviews a very famous American singer, and ends with a career.

A slice of Black Eyed Peas
The famous artist is none other than will.i.am, one of the legs on which the musical group Black Eyed Peas rests. Passionate about the brand, as evidenced by the creation of its Will.I.AMG, a cross between an AMG GT for the chassis and a G for the aesthetics. Along with Coulthard, the two review some of the designs that will.i.am likes the most.
We encourage you to pay close attention to how he dresses as he gives a curious nod to the Mercedes star with his bear.
The main course comes later, when Lewis Hamilton appears, the seven-time F-1 champion. Shy at first, his face changes when Coulthard invites him to see the first racing AMG in history, the 300 SEL 6.8, then gives him the key to the One, by the way, very similar to the rest of the models of range .
The past against the future
The finishing touch is a fun race between the Mercedes-Benz 300 SEL 6.8 AMG, which on its first participation in 1971 won second place in the 24 Hours of Spa, and the One, the supercar which inherits part of the single-seater technology with which Hamilton competes on circuits around the world, with hybrid technology thanks to which the maximum authorized power is 1,063 horsepower.
In the video, it’s clear that Coulthard is in a little more pain than Hamilton, who drives the One at mid-throttle, and even so he takes his compatriot a considerable amount of time. waiting for you in the escape route…
From Car and Driver, we join in the celebrations and congratulate Mercedes-AMG on a successful career…and those to come.
