► 2012 Chevy Sonic makes a bungee jump!
When Chevrolet decided to launch the all-new Sonic in the States, it seems
they took the word 'launch' a little too seriously.
On the back of research that showed extreme sports to be highly popular
within the car's 18-30 target customer range, the company decided to make
quite an impact by throwing a car from the top of a ten storey tower in
Long Beach, California.
Well, we say impact. But just before it plummeted to the ground, the
all-new Aveo dipped its nose in a paddling pool and bounced back up in an
incredible display of non-contact automotive bungee-jumping.
The stunt was performed as part of Chevrolet's 'Let's do this' marketing
campaign in the USA.
The Bungee Jump is the second extreme sport in which the Aveo has
participated. Last month, the car was launched more quickly than any car in
history -- accelerating from 0-60mph in just 0.4 seconds as it was pushed
out of an aeroplane, to perform its first freefall skydive.
