Not gonna lie; Mercedes does have some sick, sporty-looking instrument clusters in their cars.
But don't get me wrong, driving a Mercedes Coupe with a sporty-looking instrument cluster is not equivalent to driving a sports car.
Watch this video to find out what I mean by that:
This 15-second video seemed to be originally posted on the Mercedes driver's Instagram story.
In the video, the driver performs a "launch control" upon the traffic light turning green.
With all the fancy instrument clusters of his car, you would assume that he is driving a Mercedes sports car.
But here is the anti-climatic part: It took the driver exactly 11 seconds to get from 0-101km/h. (That is equivalent to a Honda Civic's 0-100km/h timing)
I mean, a Honda Vezel Hybrid could probably outrun his Mercedes C180 Coupe in a 0 to 100km/h race EFFORTLESSLY.
But do you see Honda Vezel drivers taking video of themselves "launching" their cars? NOPE.
Before the video ended, the driver could be seen hitting a speed of 118km/h.
License Kantong Already
Let's give him the benefit of the doubt and assume the speed limit of that stretch of road is 70km/h; the driver still exceeded the speed limit by 48km/h.
Also, don't forget the driver's usage of his mobile phone to capture this priceless moment.
According to the Road Traffic Act, exceeding the vehicular speed limit by 41 to 50km/h will result in 12 demerit points and prosecution in court.
Furthermore, using a mobile device while driving will result in 12 demerit points and a fine not exceeding $1,000 or imprisonment of up to 6 months or both (1st-time offenders).
Well, that is 24 demerit points and a court date just for that 15-second video.
The driver's stupidity is pretty darn amazing.
Straight up facts.
Wah, you didn't have to do him dirty like that.
