Mercedes-Benz puts old foes back together for new ad (+video)

Mika Häkkinen is a name well known to many of us, he’s the ice-cold two-time Formula One World Champion. He’s also a Finland native, which means the man knows how to handle a vehicle in almost any weather conditions. Mercedes-Benz has caught up with the ex-champion and hired his services to drive in a new ad showing off its 4Matic all-wheel drive system.

In the advertisement clip, Häkkinen finds himself on a snowy road in an E350 wagon when he rolls up behind an old SL. The driver of the SL is just not moving quick enough for Mika, and upon passing the classic Merc, he is greeted with the face of a familiar foe. You probably don’t need two guesses to work out who it is but we won’t spoil it for you.

Check out the Mercedes-Benz’s “Sunday Driver” advertisement clip below.
