King of the Hill, Man vs Machine | Mercedes AMG vs Longboarder in Silver Slipstreams

Western Cape, South Africa: Another Mercedes production featuring longboarders. The A 45 AMG, as the company puts it, is the epitome of performance, control and expression — essential attributes shared with extreme downhill skateboarding.


This video has DH rider Decio Lourenco vs Mercedes driver Robbi Smith. Pitting man against machine these unlikely four-wheeled allies tango at high-speed on the majestic Franschhoek Pass in the Western Cape.
