After launching a teaser (which you can access by clicking here), MINI finally released the full video of there attempt to achieve a backflip in a MINI! They used the over modified super light MINI JCW Coutryman rally car for the stunt. It was driven by Chicherit, a world champion freestyle skier and champion rally driver. He completed the jump in Tignes, France. The suspension was modified in order for it to be able to absorb the chock of the landing. MINI claims to have achieved the first unassisted backflip in the world. By “unassisted” they mean that nothing was used to help the car rotate. Impressive!
Introducing the BMW M5 2012. Before commenting on this mind blowing ad, let’s focus on car. The M5 is the new sedan by BMW. It features a 4.4 twin turbo charged V8 that delivers 560 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. This new twin turbo charging system is the new born of BMW. It is featured in the M5 and the one series. Its advantage is that it allows the car to have a smaller engine, higher performance and lesser fuel consumption. Combined with a dual clutch 7 speed gear box, this is what you get, a “Bullet” with four wheel drive.
This ad is really amazing it reminds me of the “Bullet effects in Slow motion” video that went viral on youtube a couple of years ago. The same concept is applied here: A “bullet” (M5) is launched from the barrel of a gun (the tunnel at the start of the video) and its passage through different obstacles is filmed in slow motion. The ad was done in Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats Speedway. The idea and the car are just gorgeous. With this ad BMW Canada are marketing this M5 as the fastest sedan on earth.
This is one of the craziest car ads I have ever seen. Like Seriously?! A man wearing a wing-suit, wired to a Countryman and getting ejected from a cliff?! The 2013 MINI John Cooper Works Countryman is an amazing combination of power and handling. The 1.6 turbo engine delivers 211 hp and 207 lb-ft of torque. Combined with the All4 all-wheel drive system, the Contryman ends up to be the first and fastest MINI JCW with a four wheel drive system.
Nick ‘Apex’ Brocha and Ernie Vigil are mounted on a pair of crackling Triumph Speed Triples – built by Roaring Toyz for the sole purpose of going sideways. Over the last year their quest to find the ultimate drifting playground has led them to the rolling hills of High Plains County. The only problem is the local authorities have had enough. Enter Police Officer Dan Brockett, the only man with the muscle to keep these two in sight. His 550 horsepower Ford Mustang Cobra was built for speed and he’s got a license to use it…
