Ott Tänak had some epic jumps during the World Rally Championship’s Rally Poland — especially this romp through a forest crowd that took out the cameras that were just a little too close to the stage road. Come, let us adore them.
Watch this father as he jumps out of a moving car to save his baby daughter from being run over by other cars in this busy intersection of Wenzhou, a city in the east of China. It was quite the move. »
The FAA lost contact with a Cessna 421 shortly before 9AM this morning. The pilot, it turns out, was unconscious, and the plane ultimately slammed into the Gulf of Mexico 135 miles off the coast of Florida. The pilot has been identified as Dr. Peter Hertzak. »
I don't know what the bike is, but the car is no less than a BMW E30 with a Skyline GT-R RB26 swap doing a wicked burnout while being jumped. It's the kind of mad collision of disparately awesome factors that make life worth living and Baseketball such a surprisingly funny movie. »
"Hey Deiter, hold mein bier und watch this" is what we imagine the moron behind the wheel of this BMW X5 is saying before he attempts a very unsuccessful jump-to-barrel-roll stunt. That'll definitely leave a mark. »
KITT's Turbo Boost is an awesome car feature, right? So, every box-crashing, Styrofoam rock-smashing Turbo Boost sequence ever, packed into one video must be the most awesome thing ever, right? It is. »
Travis Pastrana, rally driver and motorcycle stuntman extraordinaire, has completed the world's first Hydrojump. The stunt consisted of mooring a ramp 110 feet from the shore in five-foot deep water. He then raced his motocross bike at the water in excess of 70mph, keeping the power on as he went feet wet. This was… »
This nomination for Hoon Of The Leap Day is all about the graceful finish. Both drivers get some decent air on their backwoods jumps, but they don't stop there. While most hoons crash during the jump or upon landing, these guys added a bonus crash after the jump.
Warning: Mandatory NSFW language on the second video.
One of the odder special model pairings in Europe is the Renault Mégane and French sports magazine L'Equipe (French for The Team), which resulted in the cleverly named Renault Mégane L'Equipe. This advertisement demonstrates the best way to enjoy this advermerger as a Renault driver. Beau Saut! [Google Video] »
A bit over six months ago, we ran a shot of Ken Block's 171-foot insane-o Subie-leap for the Stunt Junkies television programme. After watching this clip, we would not want to be the man's spine. Even if you've already caught the episode, this flight — exceeding the Wright Brothers' first powered trip into the air… »
We haven't seen too much of New Zealand in the Hoon of the Day entries, but let us not forget that the original hoons hailed from those islands! So we know we're in for some hoonage when we first spy these scruffy THC-enhanced gentlemen on the screen, and hoonage we get as they take a beater Ford Laser (a restyled… »
During the formative years of ages six through eleven, this Jalop lived a short bike ride from one of Evel Knievel's most spectacular failures (aside from the bone-crushing incident outside Caesar's Palace). That is, his 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon. Evel, the "paintron" saint of hoonage, hired an… »
