Put together a Mini John Cooper Works, Monster Energy and a French Rally champion Guerlain Chicherit together and something magnificent happens. A worlds-first backflip!
It took the courageous rally driver a whopping four years to plan and execute the stunt in the spectacular French ski resort of Tignes. He drove the Mini up a massive 8 meter snow ramp, launching his Mini Countryman at just the right speed to allow him to flip the car 360 degrees before landing (just!) on a bank of snow.
No doubt Guiness World Records will be in touch with Mini as they claim is the world’s first successful backflip in a car.
Watch here to see the daredevil in action. Oh, make sure you read the ‘do not attempt this warning.’ Like we’re ever going to try!
Now, hand me a can of Monster..
