Mercedes-Benz Offers The Chance To Race Against David Coulthard

If you fancy yourself quite the sporting gentleman, Mercedes-Benz is keen to offer you a proposition: race against David Coulthard in an SLS AMG. What say you, good sir?

It won't be what you expect, however: rather than two cars competing head-to-head, 24 competition winners will race on Gran Turismo 5, while Coulthard sets laps on an undisclosed track in the carthe real one. A cop-out for Mercedes? Not quite: after enough qualifying rounds, the drivers will be whittled down to one who will face Coulthard directly on the track.

While it's not likely that this winner will beat the former F1 world champion and Mercedes-Benz brand ambassador, he'll still have shown enough chops to net him an all-expenses-paid vacation to the Brazilian Grand Prix.

All of the virtual racing action (as well as Coulthard's lap) will be broadcast live on the Mercedes web site. No word on whether Mercedes-Benz is also planning a chance to punch Muhammad Ali or play chess against Stephen Hawking in a cash-fueled version of the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
