    Report: Team set to recreate Evel Knievel's failed Snake River Canyon jump attempt
    1408025640

    Evel Knievel may have been the greatest daredevil ever, at least in the popular imagination, and in his prime, there were toys, comics and even movies about him. Some jumps eluded success even for Knievel, though. With the 40th anniversary of the legend's failed launch across the Snake River ...

    Video: Mystery movie stunt shoot goes awry in a big hurry
    1407283200

    Stunt choreography is a business that really needs to be done properly. A failure in any one area has the potential to not just ruin the stunt and waste a film or TV show's budget, but could lead to a member of the cast or crew getting seriously hurt (or even killed). We won't spoil what happens ...

    Video: Watch this motocross rider jump a biplane at the 2014 Cameron Air Show
    1402531200

    Evel Knievel transformed the motorcycle jump into the undisputed king of vehicular stunts. It's just so insanely dangerous. There's practically nothing keeping the rider safe, other than their ability to land the bike on the other side, of course. While we've seen some spectacular jumps, the ...

    Video: Tony Hawk jumps a moving Mini
    1401062460

    Remember a couple of years ago when Tony Hawk jumped over a Lexus LFA on his skateboard? Well that was nothing compared to what he's done here. Sure the LFA is a more impressive car than a Mini hatchback, but that Japanese supercar was sitting still when the world's most famous skater jumped ...

    Video: Watch Jean-Claude Van Damme do the splits between two Volvo trucks moving backwards
    1384446600

    It must be fun working in the marketing department of Volvo Trucks these days. It seems any crazy thought conjured around a conference room table can be turned into a stunt using tightrope walkers, bull runners or hamsters. Risking the life of their own president is even within the bounds of ...

    Video: Learn how Hot Wheels built a life-sized Double Loop
    1375833480

    At the 2012 X-Games, Hot Wheels attempted a death-defying, double loop. Unlike when you were a kid and actively trying to destroy your toy cars, though, this was a life-size attempt, with real drivers behind the wheel. The massive stunt, with two 66-foot-tall loops, was completed by Tanner Foust ...

    Video: Behind the scenes of a car rollover stunt
    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. We can start with this behind-the-scenes video of a car rollover stunt ...

    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: Teen attempts car jump, hits windshield and lands on his feet
    1370969100

    I've been compelled to do many things in or around a car, but jumping over one has never quite made the cut. That may be because I have all of the vertical lift of a manatee, but I digress. One enterprising young soul recently looked at a friend's Nissan Sentra and thought, "You know, I can ...

    Video: Mazda MX-5 Miata is the ultimate Frisbee partner
    1369154700

    Playing a game of Frisbee is rarely about power – it's more about agility, precision and open-air enjoyment. Much the same can be said of the Mazda MX-5 Miata, whose charm has always originated more from its finesse and tactility rather than brute strength and outright speed, qualities the ...

    Video: Watch Nitro Circus and Gavin Godfrey roll the Eureka Casino motocross-style
    1360785600

    To promote being in Mesquite, Nevada during the Mesquite Off-Road Weekend, Nitro Circus sent co-founder Tanner Gavin Godfrey on a gambling spree through the Eureka Casino. Not exactly playing the penny slots, however, Godfrey takes a tour of the hotel and casino from the saddle of his motocross ...

    Video: Alfa Romeo introduces us to the art of "undertaking"
    1359680280

    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, ...

    1351544220

    The crew from Top Gear has just ridden off with its latest entry in the Guinness Book of World Records by being the first to complete a double loop on a motorcycle in front of a live audience without practicing. As you may recall, the show recently pulled off the same stunt with a four-wheeled ...

    Video: Crazy woman tightrope walks between two moving semis to sell Volvo Trucks
    1345247880

    We can think of plenty of good uses for long stretches of empty highway under construction, but performing a death-defying tightrope stunt between two semis is nowhere on our list. Now this isn't just any regular stunt, as Volvo Trucks enlisted world record-holding funambulist Faith Dickey and ...

    Video: Watch Top Gear complete a world record double loop
    1340033400

    The Top Gear team has made a bit of history at the Top Gear Festival in Durban, South Africa, as a stunt driver pulled off a double loop in front of a crowd of over 15,000. The event involved a 26-foot tall double loop track that looks to have come right out of a Hot Wheels box, except that it ...

    Video: Tony Hawk jumps Lexus LFA on skateboard
    1337201940

    Give a Lexus LFA to an auto journalist and there's going to be an attempt to drift it. Give that same LFA to the gents at Blendtec and they're likely to see if it, or at least a piece of it, will blend. Then turn that LFA over to Tony Hawk to use for his birthday and he will, naturally, line the ...

    Video: Watch a Mazda tackle the Wall of Death, live to tell the tale
    1333472400

    We love crazy promotional videos with hair-raising stunts that seem to defy gravity, and this particular spot certainly checks all those boxes. Mazda has teamed up with The Demon Drome crew to determine if its Mazda2 can successfully whirl around a motor drome. The motor drome is essentially a ...

    Video: Watch as a motorcycle rides on top of the world
    1327003080

    It takes guts to ride a motocross bike. Tuned practically to the point of blowing themselves to bits, every pound stripped away so that only the bare necessities are left and sitting on top of a foot-plus of suspension travel, it takes a deft hand to tame these race machines. Which makes the ...

    Video: Record-setting motorcycle and snowmobile tandem jump rings in New Year
    1325619900

    Red Bull has a rather unique way of ringing in the new year. Back in 2007, motorcycle freestyle daredevil Robbie Maddison jumped 322 feet over a football field in Las Vegas, setting a world record for the longest motorcycle jump. A year later, the Australian stuntman jumped 96 feet into the air, ...
