Video: Remember that Gullwing tunnel trick? Yeah, that was Schumi
Schumacher surprises yet again – Click above to view the video after the jump
Mercedes-Benz looked like it was out to change the laws of physics when it released video footage – whether factual or digitally created – of its new SLS AMG supercar driving upside down in a tunnel. Now it looks like they're out to change history, too. Retroactively.
If you watch the original footage, chances are you won't recognize the test driver on duty, supernaturally talented though he appears to be. But watch it again in the new version after the jump and – presto change-o! – it was Michael Schumacher all along! Cute trick, especially considering he probably wasn't signed to his new deal with Mercedes when they made this clip. For our part, we're still surprised he's not driving a Ferrari in retirement, so at this point anything's believable.
