Top Gear 360-degree Stig video

We post a lot of videos on Autoblog, but we aren't sure we've ever posted one quite like this. This is a video of Top Gear's Stig lapping the Dunsfold test track in a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series. But even for the talented video crews at TG, this isn't everyday fare.

A 360-degree, high-definition camera has been rigged up atop the gullwing SLS, allowing viewers to choose from an infinite array of viewing angles, all while The Stig does what he/she/it does, lapping the track as quickly as possible. It is a very, very cool way of shooting video, and one that you'll absolutely want to check out. Make sure to watch it in HD and then click the Little Planet mode to have your mind blown.

Oh, in case you were wondering if The Stig was really hustling in this video, according to TG, this is nothing more than a warm-up lap. Scroll down to watch the interactive video.
