move/displace A LOT of air while moving at high speeds! This is the shock wave he felt hit his car. A Benz is a pretty-good sized car with plenty of frontal area...think of a boat moving through water and the waves coming off of the bow as the boat moves forward...with a car it's the same thing only the air movement goes down each side, over the top and under the chassis of the car against the pavement. Lots of aerodynamics and physics go into the creation of a modern vehicle.
Silence isn't always golden....sometimes it's yellow.
