Watch Frenchman Guerlain Chicherit Do the World's First Successful Backflip in a Car

Monster Energy has teamed up with Rally Raid world champion Guerlain Chicherit, to do the world’s first successful car backflip in a Mini Countryman.

Guerlain Chicherit spent four years preparing for it and as you can see see in the video below he finally managed to successfully launch the Mini Countryman into the air, flip it 360 degrees and then land all four tires onto an 8 metre high snow ramp in southeastern France.

According to Monster Energy, Guerlain did it twice. Once in a private attempt and later in front of some spectators.
