Mercedes-Benz
the extreme ride

For Mercedes-AMG, it all begins at the end of your comfort zone. In February 2015, we took 3 winners on a heart-stopping extreme adventure where they’d never felt more alive.

From Johannesburg to Cape Town to Durban, we began with 3 thrilling extreme experiences, powering our winners’ adrenaline in the new CLA 45 AMG, GLA 45 AMG and A 45 AMG.

Then, 3 finalists competed for glory on the hot tar of Zwartkop Raceway. Our ultimate winner’s triumphant speed on the racetrack won him the experience of a lifetime: an all-expenses-paid trip right into the pit of MERCEDES-AMG PETRONAS F1 glory

Exploding from 0-100km/h in 4.6 seconds in the new CLA 45 AMG, our winner Ross Johnson received personalised driver training from an AMG instructor as an appetizer.

The new CLA 45 AMG is unrestrained, uninhibited and unstoppable, and has set ferocious new standards in aerodynamics, efficiency and driving systems.
