Mercedes-Benz Silver Slipstreams

Extreme downhill skateboarding – a sport often referred to as insane and terrifying – is actually a precision dance between man and road, requiring the utmost in performance from both the rider and the piece of hardwood with four wheels attached to it. It’s fitting that Mercedes Benz chose to underscore the performance of the A45 AMG by pairing champion downhill skateboarder, Decio Lourenco, and racecar driver, Robbi Smith, in a duel on the Franschhoek Pass in South Africa. Combining grace and skill, both man and machine navigate this challenging road course in a race to the bottom. Insane? Yes. Message delivered? Without a doubt.
