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!
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.
