Last month, TV star Rob Dyrdek set a Guinness World Record for the Farthest Reverse Jump by a Car. His total distance was 89 feet 3¼ inches, and his car of choice was the Chevrolet Sonic. Check out the video below!
Dyrdek has his own show on MTV called “Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory,” in which he takes everything to the extreme with stunts of all kinds. He previously used the Sonic to perform a 360-degree kick-flip off a ramp in 2011.
“The Sonic is a great car for firsts,” said Dyrdek, in a statement. “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 in front of a crowd at Six Flags Magic Mountain. MTV will air the stunt as part of the season finale of “Fantasy Factory” on March 13 at 10:30 pm EST.
Of course, the Sonic that Dyrdek used was modified for the stunt, and we do not recommend trying to do this stunt on your own. But if you want to feel like stuntman, head on over to MY Chevrolet to see if the Chevrolet Sonic makes you feel like you can do anything.
