Watch Ford jump its 2013 Fusion into a pile of cardboard boxes
As in any stunt, this Fusion was modified for optimal safety and effect. All of the windows were replaced with Mylar, the airbags were removed and ballast was added to the trunk to give the car better balance for flying. For the jump itself, the car hit the five-foot ramp at 52 miles per hour, and it flew for 90 feet before crashing into 2,000 cardboard boxes. After all was said and done, it took two days to create the jump for the 30-second spot.
Scroll down to see how the commercial's stunt was performed and then check out the final product. We just wonder if the new Fusion will get a Dixie Horn option like the General Lee.
