This was the pinnacle for American Motors... Gotta love that `74 Hornet Hatchback from Man With the Golden Gun.

It`s not an impossible jump, it`s just really tricky with some careful calculations.

It was fun to watch the first time or two, but it wasn`t necessary to show it a dozen times from every possible angle. It got old.

This car did have a rollcage in it. evedent by the fact that the roof didnt collapse in on itself when the car landed on it. also you can see that it has about 12 shiney things on the bottom when it flips, thats the base were they are welded in. one of the reasons for not putting a rollcage in all cars is the weight. they are solid stell and can wiegh over a tonne (metric) which for many smaller cars (including mine which wieghs under 700kg or about 1600lbs) means that they cannot move at all, plus you need more petrol to run it. andother is that there is more steel in those roll cages then in the body of the car meaning it is VERY expensive to put in. this crash doesnt show the full force of impact for a small car. 60km/h (35mph) will kill in a small car, and at 80km/h for a normal car will kill. be careful. the only thing stopping you from kissing the other driver is about 10 feet of air and maybe 1 inch of sheet metal.

Instead of replaying the same jump an obscene number of times, they could have also shown the one where he tried to reverse jump a huge line of cars. (...and fail miserably)

geezerguy, either you have the best most subtlest american sarcasm going or you really think that you were watching many cars try that and all flip in exactly the same manner!! Either way Kudos!!

Amazing, no matter how many times they tried the result was identical. You think they might have tried changing the speed, approach angle, or used a different vehicle.

Funny story, I just went driving from BK, and I was inspired by this post. So I hit the accelerator a little harder than I normally do.... what they dont tell you in driving school, if the light is yellow, and you are far away, and their is a car waiting to make a turn, dont accelerate.

If I crash im placing the blame on IAB, or GTA whichever is good

TopGear Stuntman`s second outing, this is (He`s new for Series 11). The first time he tried to jump an Austin Allegro 72 feet... backwards!

But this one was really accurately calculated by James - two blackboards worth of complicated maths! But it still went wrong... Still, TopGear Stuntman nearly made it in the humble MG Maestro.

But that was a really crappy vid. There`s way more to that jump than those two camera angles, and they were shown only once, rather than over and over.

I agree the music is good... but should have kept the man with the golden gun original :-)

i think the music kept me watching.

instead of just watching 2 seconds of it, fast forwarding to the end, and putting up a comment about the last 2 seconds of the clip, fooling you all to think i watched the whole clip!

it was pretty good for a poo car

"And can no one answer my roll cage question?"

Its expensive. Normally only top of the line cars and racecars have that

Loofah: Yeah, but it`s not very effective. It has no working muscle, so it kinda sits there.

And can no one answer my roll cage question?

...Yeah he needs a roll cage.

I`ve always wondered something; Why aren`t all cars built with roll cages? Wouldn`t that make them a LOT more safe?
