Rob Dyrdek Flips Chevy Sonic

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.

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 challenge. "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. ID Video : 319335





► 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.

Real Man's 4WD Track
A Land Rover Defender drives up a "Real Man's" 4WD track. One brave soul attempted it in a Landcruiser but failed before even getting both sets of wheels on the ramp. He is currently at home trying to fix his Exhaust. The video was taken at the Maitland 4WD & Camping Show 2009 and the ramp is 5.5M above the ground. The majority of the drive is done with the driver seeing nothing but sky.

I would like to thank my crew; James Smith, Eric Matuchek, Tom Harper, Cary McCall, Kris Ryan, Serge Kolchinskiy, Dailyn Matthews and Jason Lewis. Mike Ryan Stunt Coordinator-ramp designer.





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.
