Dubai makes the record books once again after XDubai teamed up with Mercedes for a must-watch stunt.

XDubai and Mercedes have released a video, which shows three stunning stunts attempted around Dubai's landmarks including Burj Al Arab, Port Rashid and Dubai Marina. Part of a campaign to showcase the luxury and performance of three Mercedes cars – the AMG A 45 4MATIC, CLA 45 4MATIC and GLA 45 4MATIC – the stunts were executed by a trio of thrill-seekers: Hollywood stuntman Damien Walters, kiteboarding champion Nick Jacobsen and base jumper Noah Bahnson.

The highlight of the 2-minute clip is Jacobsen's record-breaking stunt where he successfully attempted a 210m kiteboard jump from the Burj Al Arab helipad. The previous record, also held by Jacobsen, was 90m. Completing the round-up of amazing stunts were a low-altitude launch and freefall jump by Bahnson and a showcase of dexterity by Walters as he manoeuvres in and out of a speeding Mercedes vehicle.
