South Africa is the only place spinning could have started. Home to 850,000 people and a history bathed in the blood of the 1976 youth uprisings, Soweto is a town accustomed to danger, to violence, to the kind of ‘fuck you’ attitude that can only come through finding liberation from decades of oppression. And…
Over 400 feet of total jumps have been completed by Travis Pastrana tonight in Las Vegas: one jump over 52 cars, one jump over 16 buses, and one jump over the fountain in front of Caesars Palace hotel and casino—breaking three of legendary daredevil Evel Knievel’s most insane records. I was there, and it was an…
There were just a couple dudes working on a cliffside when suddenly–a Eurocopter AS350 helicopter pops up like a playful sea otter and performs a rolly-flippy dance that might make you queasy just watching it from the ground. It is most excellent.
Travis Pastrana does things in all kinds of vehicles that I probably wouldn’t even attempt in Grand Theft Auto, which is why he’s so fun to watch. Check out a solid hour of him and his lunatic friends doing stunts in Action Figures 2, a classic action sports-style movie that went live today.
The goofballs at Hoonigan turned an old Volvo V60 (RIP) into what is basically a full-sized Crazy Cart and proceeded to do the tightest donuts physically possible. Or maybe it’s more like a portable Disneyland teacup ride... deathtrap. Looks fun.
Stunt driving is an extremely intense, high pressure and dangerous profession, but it’s extremely rewarding for both the audiences that get to enjoy the crazy action on screen and the people that get to do the driving.
Actor Dax Shepard is a friend of Jalopnik who likes to make fun movies that feature cool cars and bikes. Because I live the #dadlife, I finally got around to watching one of Shepard’s more recent films, CHiPs. Co-staring along with Shepard is a Chevy SS. If you saw the film, did you catch the swap when the SS meets…
You’re bored. You have a beater truck and some open space. Why not put it up on two wheels and see what happens?
On Oct. 20, on his last attempt, Tom Morgan, a British adventurer, sat in a chair and flew into the sky on the strength of a few dozen giant, helium-filled balloons. It was all reminiscent of a certain movie.
The red 2006 Subaru WRX only makes a brief but memorable appearance in the opening act of this summer’s hit heist movie Baby Driver, but it would appear it made quite the impact considering the price one of the stunt cars just sold for on eBay.
I’m close to accepting the crossover takeover. I’m close. Like with the revival in high-waisted pants, I’ve accepted that I have no control over the matter. But damn do cars like the 2017 Jaguar E-Pace make it hard.
Huh. Looks like your bike rides better without you, man.
XP1K4 is the fourth installment of an insane stunt series featuring a heavily modified UTV and RJ Anderson, quite possibly the best and bravest person driving these jacked-up farm buggies right now. The whole video’s nuts, but the backflip will straight blow your brain up.
The bright-orange 1969 Dodge Charger R/T that raised hell on TV in the hands of the Dukes of Hazzard has to be one of the most famous hero cars in fiction, mayeb behind Doc Brown’s DeLorean. This week we got to see it get air one more time, in real life, in the middle of Detroit.
360-degree “virtual reality” YouTube videos are lame and gimmicky most of the time. But come on, I know you’re not about to turn down the opportunity to be part of Project Badass.
This time of year, the colder parts of the world typically bemoan the icy conditions and the lengthy to-do list associated with putting their beloved motorcycles in storage for the winter. Except Arūnas Gibieža. This guy is rad.
Forty years ago, Evel Knievel strapped himself into a rocket and tried to fly over Idaho’s immense Snake River Canyon. He didn’t make it. But the stunt launched his lunacy into legend and inspired a generation of adrenaline junkies like Eddie Braun—the man who, this past weekend, completed the epic stunt Knievel…
