A French stuntman named Guerlain Chicherit has laid claim to the title of the world's first man to pull off a back flip in a car. The car used in the stunt was a Mini Countryman in the stunt was performed using a snow ramp in the French ski resort town of Tignes. It appears that stuntman went up a very steep black ramp and flipped the car and landed on a snow ramp safely.
The stuntman is a French Rally Raid world champion and is hailed is the first to perform an unassisted 360° backflip in a car. Apparently, the stunt has been works for the last four years and the Mini used in the stunt was heavily modified.
