As the official safety car of the World Superbike motorcycle racing series, it's a little odd that Alfa Romeo decided to publicize its Mito SBK by performing what appears to be a rather dangerous stunt. Odd... but awesome.

Officially known as the limited edition Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde SBK, the four-wheeler was driven by professional stunt driver Paul Swift at the Silverstone Circuit in Britain. Joining Swift was Chris "The Stalker" Walker on his Kawasaki Ninja, the two-wheeler that normally sees duty in the British Superbike class.

Despite being an even two minutes long, the entire video really only consists of this single stunt. At least it's one really good stunt. See for yourself by watching the video down below.

      You're kidding me. That's not a great stunt. I know there was some risk to it, but it's not impressive nor any more difficult that driving a car on two wheels already is.

      The still shot makes it look more impressive than it is. I was hoping the Mito driver would at least get up on 2 wheels without an aid.

      KITT did that back in the 80s. Nothing new here.

      Something new for the sideshow crowd to emulate! Since many of them have already become proficient at drifting and The Art of Ghost Riding the Whip...

      That is one good looking bike. I wonder if there is a kit to convert my bike to look that good.
