Mercedes is gearing up for the Goodwood Festival of Speed by releasing a new video featuring David Coulthard and the SLS AMG Black Series.

In the clip, Coulthard highlights the famous driveway which will played host to hundreds of racers and cars. While he takes it relatively easy in the video, the course record was set in 1999 by Nick Heidfeld who posted a time of 41.6 seconds.

As a refresher, the SLS AMG Black Series has a 6.2-liter V8 engine that produces 622 bhp (464 kW) and 468 lb-ft (634 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a seven-speed AMG SPEEDSHIFT dual-clutch transmission which enables the 3,417 lb (1,550 kg) coupe to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 196 mph (315 km/h).
