Blind Backflip Over Speeding Formula E Car

I’ve seen some crazy videos over the years having to do with cars and the stunts people try and pull in, on, and around them. We’ve seen some stunts in a similar vein to this one in plenty of movies, and I have no doubt I’m not the only one who’s wondered if he could jump over a speeding car if it were coming straight at me. Hollywood stuntman, Damien Walters, decided to show us how it’s done, only in an unexpectedly unique way. He does a backflip over a Formula E car speeding straight at him from behind. That’s right…he can’t see the car coming.

I have a lot of respect for the people who can come up with, then actually execute on these crazy things most of us only daydream about on a sunny day.

For those that would argue this has nothing to do with European Cars, you’re absolutely right. But who cares?! This is one heck of an amazing video!

Midnight Rambler Video

Two words sum up today’s video: Magnus Walker.

This is a video from last year, but I came across it earlier this week and can’t find that I posted it on the site, so today is the day! I absolutely love this video. It causes my imagination to run wild and I can see myself driving the streets in a beloved car like this 911T. There are a number of things I like about Magnus Walker’s cars, not the least of which is his creative, personal touch approach to his cars. One thing I was reminded of again is he likes to work on cars he will drive. Notice the seat bolster shredded from entry/exit, the duct tape on the door, missing radio, etc. This is obviously a car he loves and loves to drive.

The video has no words, just pure Porsche sound goodness. Crank the speakers up and enjoy the sounds.
