    1373922060

    With Transformers 4, Fast & Furious 7 and Need for Speed bringing hundreds of millions of dollars of carnage to the Summer of 2014 - and Getaway coming next month - we should probably start learning our car-stunt grammar.

    Video: Watch these dudes pull off amazing stunts with some Fiat 500C Abarths
    1371513480

    These dudes are perfect, which, we surmise, is why their YouTube channel is called Dude Perfect. But we digress. In their latest video, Dude Perfect performs some amazing trick shots with footballs, basketballs and baseballs, along with a trio of Fiat 500C Abarth convertibles. It's perfect, ...

    Video: Goodyear uses the old "surprise gymkhana road test with stunt driver" routine
    1341938640

    It's a familiar tactic: if you want a customer to know what a car can do, you've got to get them in it and take them for a ride. To truly impress a customer, though, you've got to take them, *ahem,* for a ride. It works so well that NASCAR driver Carl Edwards recently did it with Ford engineers ...

    Video: Guinness Book of World Records spin-off shows it's time to make the donuts
    1332460860

    Ah, donuts – one of the automotive world's purest forms of hooliganism. We've all done 'em, simply because every once in a while, it's just plain fun to light up a car's back end and fling it around in a circle. Fun as they may be, donuts aren't necessarily all that fun to watch. After ...

    Video: PopMech offers a video history of the automotive barrel roll

    Video: Stunt driver attempts to play dominoes with row of busses
    1308060060

    This may not come as a shock, but as kids, we desperately wanted to become a stunt driver. Maybe it was one too many McQueen movies or a few too many hours soaking up Knight Rider reruns, but we were always smitten with the no-consequences glory of a good fender-to-fender bust up. That's exactly ...

    Video: Fiat 500 does 360-degree vertical loop at AutoRAI
    1302893940

    If there's an automotive spectacle that rivals the jump in sheer visual excitement, it's got to be the classic vertical loop (aka loop-de-loop or loop-the-loop). There's just something special about seeing a car go vertical, then upside-down and back all in one swift motion that makes the crowds ...
