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.

The successful attempt starts at 1:09, and he catches it at 1:19.
