World’s first ever car backflip

Guerlain Chicherit is a well-known French rally driver who has become the first person to complete a successful backflip with a car. This daredevil challenge was carried out by in Tignes, France, thanks to a Mini Countryman.

According to a Mini’s spokesman, the car was modified for the occasion but there was not any extra assistance to complete this crazy stunt. Guerlain hit the 25ft ramp at exactly 37mph, flying 75ft into the air and completing a full 360 degree flip.

Afterwards Guerlain said, “In the jump, I knew the balance of the car was good and it took me maybe 20 seconds to realise I had landed on my wheels.”
