Banging A 45 AMG First Person Driving Footage

Most video car reviews out there are pretty standard when it comes to the way that the model driven is filmed, with either the reviewer or the car itself being shown from a third person view.
The following footage is completely different, as it puts the viewer right in the driver's seat, making for a much more immersive experience. Oculus Rift, anyone?

In essence, the video is pretty straightforward, as we have a Mercedes-Benz A 45 AMG being driven in a sporty manner and the driver has either fixed a camera on his head or is using Google Glasses, which have a built-in camera of their own.

The result isn't exactly what you would call spectacular, but it provides a nice break from all the regular video where we, as the viewers, are sitting at impossible angles compared with the car.

The A 45 AMG is, as you know, the hottest hot hatch on the planet right now, and its M133 four-cylinder engine pretty much sounds like that of a WRC car when fitted with the optional Performance Exhaust, just like the car in the video. Enjoy!
