Anderson Silva: stunt driver
Just finished driving a pair of Mercedes SLS coupes, one of which was fitted with a bunch of Brabus bits. We were short a driver so James Hickerson, our long-time test engineer, made a call to Anderson Silva’s camp and the UFC champion met us in the serpentine canyons of San Bernardino County.
A genuine down-to-earth guy, Silva manned one of the muscled Mercs and drove for several hours while we snapped both action and still photography.
Hard to believe such a nice guy knocks people out for a living.
Read all about it in the July issue of european car magazine (should be hitting the stands in a few days).
