One of the most beautiful off-road-style builds we’ve ever seen is this 1974 Alfa Romeo GTV 2000, which started its new life when it was dropped off a flat-bed trailer. Owners Nikita and Ilya Bridan rebuilt it into an safari-style hoonmobile, which inevitably came to Hoonigan’s yard where it died as it was meant to…
Watch the brake lights as this Kia Sorento takes off from a drive-thru ATM in Rockford, Illinois two days before Christmas. They never come on, even as the car hits a berm, goes airborne and bunny hops another car.
Happy Winter Solstice, everybody! No matter what you celebrate, there’s a good chance that you’ll be doing the whole gifting and/or overeating schtick sooner or later this month. Here’s a better idea: go hoon the dunes.
Gather around, friends, and let us watch a BMW E46 fly through the air until it eventually just flies open itself.
The Oldsmobile Alero is all but the definition of a “regular car.” It’s bland. It’s inoffensive. It will get you from Point A to Point B just fine. It can also do burnouts and sweet jumps if you’re quite bored. SEND IT!
Are you feeling down? Get up. I mean, physically up. As in, the direction away from the ground. You should jump an incredibly large vehicle into the air. Pretend your huge mud truck is a rocketship and fly! Roam free about the air! Nothing can get you down when you’re up!
Last year, Bryce Menzies set a new world record for the longest off-road truck jump using a modified 900-horsepower Pro2 truck. The resulting 379.4-foot jump not only smashed the old record—it also looked ridiculously cool. Now you can poke around the footage of that jump captured with a 360-degree camera.
The craziest jump in rally is a big statement. You have the famous jumps in Finland. El Brinco in Mexico. WRC Sweden has an award named ‘Colin’s Crest’ for the longest jump on SS16. These are massive jumps, but they aren’t the largest or the craziest.
The Lincoln Town Car is a great classic brougham of style and grace. Who knew this magnificent boat of a vehicle could fly so well?
I always get nervous driving over drawbridges. One family vacationing at the Jersey shore had to think fast and jump their Toyota over a drawbridge because it started to raise while they were on it.
Watch this video and you’ll understand why people lose their minds over Rally Finland. I could tell you it’s the fastest event on the World Rally Championship calendar, but that wouldn’t explain it in the way that a car flying sideways through the air set up for another flat out corner does.
The consistently fastest event in the World Rally Championship is Rally Finland, beloved as much for its huge speeds as for its car-launching crests and jumps. Here’s the gnarliest one of the weekend.
If you’re going to fly a flag on a sand car, you really ought to make that sand car fly. I’m not sure this is a jump as much as it is a launch into low-earth orbit.
There are few greater joys slightly off of this world than jumping a car. It’s an eerie silence once you’re in the air, suddenly devoid of the noise of your tires on the ground, or dirt and rocks getting flung up onto your car. For a second, you’re a spaceship pilot, floating above the sadness and woe of this world.
A Minnesota man survived an insane crash that reportedly involved his car driving off an embankment, flying over 210 feet of open water, coming to a stop on ice, and making it to a nearby home around 3:30 a.m. The local police chief politely called this a “miracle.”
I don’t think “lose hood over crest” was in the notes, you guys.
Every year, the World Rally Championship’s trip to Sweden is a real treat. This year, it’s back to its usual Hoth-like form, covered in glorious snow and ice that allows the cars’ studded tires to reach ludicrous speeds on the stages. Let’s gaze in awe at the jumps from this year’s Rally Sweden—including the mega-jump…
Doing a double backflip on anything is pretty hard. Doing it with a big hulking 450-pound snowmobile is downright insane. After many, many attempts by snowmobile riders around the world, Swedish rider Daniel Bodin finally stuck the landing on one of the hardest snowmobile tricks in history.
Is there anything as magical as these delicate hops performed by a Ford Festiva? This little crapcan puts entire performances of the Nutcracker to shame.
