Guinness World Record set for a golf ball caught in a moving car

Guinness World Record set for a golf ball caught in a moving car

At right around 120 mph it was time for former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard to stick his hand out of his $200,000 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster supercar to make the catch. In his hand (nearly) plopped a standard sized golf ball hit by British pro golfer Jake Shepherd from 275 meters away. As it turns out, catching the ball in your hand isn't one of the requirements for the Guinness World Record to be won - and good thing, too, as they actually ended up catching the ball here in the middle of the car's front two seats.

I'll admit that generally I find SUVs to be very boring. These big people movers tend to be underpowered leading to slovenly performance. That doesn't appear to be the case with the new Mercedes-Benz GL 63 AMG SUV that has officially debuted as a 2013 model. This full-size SUV gets a twin turbo 5.5L V8 engine.

The Auto tech wake-up: Free iPads and Apple-trained tutors

The Auto tech wake-up: Free iPads and Apple-trained tutors

Fiendishly complex car dashboards aren't just a concern to safety regulators but auto manufacturers too, worried that new buyers may not only fail to use gadgetry-packed vehicles but may come to resent them. Cadillac's new 2013 ATS may be tempting gas-heads with its sharp styling and engine options, but the fact that the GM-owned company will throw in a free iPad - preloaded with a new CUE training tool to help owners get the best of their car - should help take some of the sting out of the touchscreen dashboard too. It's not just Cadillac which is reacting, however; other car manufacturers are even raiding well-known computing firms for their tech tutor talent.

There are some SUVs that people buy and you know the vehicles will never see off-road use. The Mercedes-Benz G-class is one such vehicle.

Brabus Bullit Stealth Coupe packs a punch

Brabus Bullit Stealth Coupe packs a punch

Obviously, there's a difference in what a stealth car or sleeper means between Europeans and Americans. Americans see a sleeper as a car that's stock on the outside, with a lot of go under the hood to surprise people. Over in Europe they called the new Brabus Bullit Stealth Coupe 800 a sleeper, it looks awake to me.

Mercedes creates invisible F-Cell car

Mercedes creates invisible F-Cell car

Invisibility cloaks might be great for sneaking around as a teen wizard, but making your car invisible probably isn't such a great idea; still, Mercedes Benz's promo for the F-Cell zer0 emissions technology is impressive all the same. One side of the car was covered with sheets of multicolored LEDs, showing a feed from a Canon 5D MkII camera on the other side, before Mercedes took to the streets of Germany to confuse pedestrians.
