Video: Mini pulls off first car backflip

Yep, this is what Mini claims is the world’s first successful flip in a car

This is what happens when you drink too much Monster energy. You get a John Cooper Works Mini Countryman, and convince French Rally Raid world champion, Guerlain Chicherit, to make it do a backflip.

Yep, this is what the manufacturer claims is the world's first successful backflip in a car. It took Checherit four years to plan the stunt, which involved him jumping the car, flipping it 360 degrees, then landing on a 8-meter high snow ramp in French ski resort, Tignes.

Your move, Red Bull...

Now share it...
