No sharks were harmed during filming.
Deep breath. Not content with simply jumping over the BMW i8, this fella decides to kick it up a few notches by doing a front flip over a moving i8.
As you’ll see in the video, the occupants of the BMW i8 look rightfully scared. Will they hit the stuntman before he jumps from the ground? Will the fella land on the rear hatch of the i8? There are many unknowns when attempting this sort of stunt. Without some science and math skills, even determining how fast to drive the vehicle can be challenging.
The end result this time is a beautifully executed front flip over the low-slung (yes, that’s unusually important here) BMW i8. It’s executed to perfection and is truly enjoying to watch. Over and over again.
Now, you’re probably thinking, why not try to back flip over a moving car, right? Well, that’s been done, too. Check out freerunner, gymnast, and Hollywood stuntman Damien Walters perform the blind backflip. Damien was actually the one who approached Formula E with this crazy idea. Formula E calls this 'The Leap Of Faith'. Enjoy!
We don’t recommend trying any of this yourself.
