Mercedes-AMG has joined up with some of New Zealand's finest professional ski and snowboard athletes to create a stunning and exhilarating new action video.

Filmed at the Snow Farm in Cardrona, the video fuses the dynamic, high-performance of Mercedes-Benz's go fast AMG vehicles, with the extreme capabilities of professional winter sport.

Mercedes tapped professional automotive photographer, Chris Benny, to film the video at the slightly unusual location.

The video features a range of Mercedes-Benz vehicles including: the C 63 AMG 'Edition 507' Coupé, G 63 AMG, SL 63 AMG and E 63 AMG 'S' models.

Incorporating drivers from the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy, all activities were naturally performed on a closed, controlled course.

All professional athletes taking part in the filming of the video were members of the Cardrona NZ Park & Pipe Team. These athletes include professional freestyle skiers Beau-James Wells and Byron Wells, and professional snowboarders Stef Zeestraten and Mitch Brown.
