Rob Dyrdek Chevrolet Sonic Guinness World Record : Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump
Television star and former professional skateboarder, Rob Dyrdek sets a
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® record for the Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car
Rob Dyrdek and the Chevrolet Sonic have launched themselves into GUINNESS
WORLD RECORDS® glory together- backwards!
In a gravity defying automotive stunt, television star and former
professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek commandeered a Chevrolet Sonic in the
Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car.
The spectacular stunt, which took place before ecstatic spectators at Six
Flags Magic Mountain, totaled 89 feet 3¼ inches. Dyrdek successfully
landed the Sonic on the catch ramp and was able to drive away from the
stunt to meet the Guinness requirements - thereby qualifying both the car
and the driver as GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS record holders.
This is the second time for Dyrdek, host of MTV's "Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy
Factory", to get behind the wheel of a Sonic and attempt to set another
first. In 2011, Dyrdek successfully performed a 360-degree kick-flip off a
ramp, also using the Chevrolet Sonic.
"The Sonic is a great car for firsts," said Dyrdek. "I have always been a
Chevy guy, so when we decided we wanted to set a Guinness World Record for
the finale of "Fantasy Factory," using the Sonic again just made sense."
Dyrdek performed the stunt before spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain,
while MTV filmed the jump for the Season Finale of "Fantasy Factory," which
is set to air on March 13, 2014 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on MTV. In order to
qualify to set a Guinness World Records achievement, Dyrdek had to
successfully land the Sonic on the catch ramp and be able to drive away
from the stunt.
With all high-speed action stunts, safety is a priority. The Chevrolet
Sonic is the first and only car in its class to receive a 5-Star Overall
Vehicle Score for Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, and offers 10 standard air bags and high-strength steel as
part of its body structure, making the Sonic a strong choice for this
"We take extra care and precautions with each and every stunt we create,"
said Elia Popov, Owner, J.E.M. F/X Inc. "Rob is always willing to try
anything once and for this backwards jump, we felt confident that the Sonic
would keep him safe," said Popov.
MTV filmed Dyrdek's Sonic jump for the season finale of "Rob Dyrdek's
Fantasy Factory" which will air on March 13, 2014 at 10:30 PM ET/PT on MTV.
This is the second time Dyrdek has achieved a Chevy Sonic "first." In
December 2011, Dyrdek successfully performed a 360-degree kick-flip off a
ramp, also in a Sonic.

2014 Chevrolet Sonic RS 1.4L Turbo Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/sonic/2014/?id=32972 The Chevrolet Sonic
should be on your shopping list for a couple of reasons:
1) The car is very cheap with a starting price of $14,170
2) It is one of the few small cars actually built in America
3) The Sonic drives and handles well
4) The car is very safe with 10 airbags
On the inside the Sonic is cheeky and playful. The instrument set-up is
unique combining both analog and digital gauges. The brushed silver trim
and fake suede is nice enough. The driver's compartment is roomy and easy
to see the road. The basic Sonic engine is a naturally aspirated 1.8 liter.
But this Sonic RS has a 1.4 liter ECOTEC turbocharged 4-cylinder which is peppy and eager.
The Sonic puts together some great ingredients resulting in a very
satisfying overall experience. This RS model starts at $20k after all is
said and done.
