Hein Wagner, from Cape Town, South Africa, in search of an extreme adventure has successfully broken his own world land speed record by driving at 322.5 km/h – in the dark. He was born blind, but that never stopped him from going after things that the rest of us wouldn’t even attempt, which includes completing a cycle race and participating in a yacht race from Cape-to-Rio.

In 2005, Wagner set a top of 269 km/h while driving a Masarati, but this time, he was going to set the bar even higher. For this, he got himself the all new Mercedes-Benz SL 65 Black Series, with a twin-turbo 6.0-liter V12 engine, pumping out 661 HP and 738 lb-ft torque. Mr Wagner was accompanied by his navigator, Ray Wakefield, who helped him sprint down the Upington airport in the Northern Cape and achieve a top speed of 322.5 km/h before coming to a safe stop.
