Being a UFC champ and one of the best pound for pound fighters in the sport definitely seems to have its benefits. Not long after having his new Camaro customized UFC middleweight champion, Anderson Silva, received a call from an auto magazine asking that he come do some “stunt driving” through the canyons of San Bernardino County. The car, a red Mercedes-Benz SLS coupe sporting some upgrades from Brabus, so of course “The Spider” obliged.
“Silva manned one of the muscled Mercs and drove for several hours while we snapped both action and still photography.”
With a fight looming in August we’re not exactly sure how much stunt was involved in his driving, but in an SLS I don’t really think that matters.
You can catch the full story in the upcoming, July issue of European Car Magazine.
