It's a car stunt that would have impressed Evil Kenievel and saved James Bond! Watch as daredevil skateboarder Rob Dyrdek drives a Chevrolet Sonic like a skateboard! His extreme car stunt was very similar to a classic James Bond car caper from 1974's The Man With The Golden Gun. This is Chevy's third in a series of outrageous stunts for their new sub-compact Sonic.
2012 BMW 328i Sedan Test Drive in Barcelona
As we all very well know, the BMW 3 Series has a long history of being the
benchmark by which all sport sedans have been measured. During a recent
test program in Barcelona, Spain we were able to sample the 2012 BMW 328i
with the new TwinPower turbo 4-cylinder
engine mated to the 8-speed Sport Automatic.

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.

► 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.
DC SHOES: GYMKHANA 2.1, BLOCK vs DYRDEK
As seen on MTVs Rob Dyrdeks Fantasy Factory, Gymkhana 2.1 takes the epic
cinematography and driving from DC Co-Founder and Rally Team Member Ken
Block that youve come to expect from the Gymkhana videos and mixes in Rob
Dyrdek in his comical and somewhat powerful miniature version of Blocks
rally car. The two, who have worked together and been good friends since
Dyrdek joined the DC skate team in 1995, decided to get the shifter car
built and film the clip when Dyrdek made an appearance in the Gymkhana TWO
video earlier this year. A custom mold was made to build the shifter car
nearly identical to Kens Subaru WRX STI (except for the head-out-the-roof
part). The team at Vermont SportsCar wrapped the shifter in the same
graphics as Blocks competition rally car, and a custom fireproof, FIA
certified driving suit just like Blocks was even made for Dyrdek. The
Gymkhana 2.1 video features all the near run-overs, drifting, racing and
shenanigans that occur when two unique individuals like Dyrdek and Block
hit the tarmac in polar-opposite-sized whips. For more photos and info on
Gymkhana 2.1, check out dcshoes.com/auto.

Rob Dyrdek Successfully Kick Flips All-New Chevy Sonic
MTV-reality and action sports-star Rob Dyrdek successfully performed a kick
flip in the all-new 2012 Chevrolet Sonic on Saturday.
A kick flip -- a 360-degree rotation in mid-air -- is a common stunt on a
skateboard. Not so much in a vehicle. But Dyrdek, host of MTV's Fantasy
Factory and Ridiculousness, and the Chevy Sonic are up for trying 'firsts.'
"A kick flip with a Chevy Sonic was a no-brainer," said Dyrdek. "I am a
Chevy guy from my '69 Camaro to the Tahoe I drive every
day. The Sonic's power and sportiness made it the perfect vehicle for this
Dyrdek performed the stunt before spectators at Six Flags Magic Mountain,
while MTV filmed the feat for the Season 5 premiere of Fantasy Factory.
Dyrdek executed the kick flip over the world's-largest skateboard that he
created for a previous stunt.
