It took four years of planning and a lot of guts, but Frenchman Guerlain Chicherit did a backflip, in a car, over a huge jump, and landed it!

A former free ride ski world champion, Chicherit drives rally cars these days and is looking to jump over anything he can, anything that will give him airtime. Checherit was commissioned to do the jump by Mini and Monster energy drinks to see if a backflip in a car was possible. Using a modified Mini Cooper, that looks more like a truck, he made the successful jump in his hometown of Tignes, France, on an icy slope.
