Hot Wheels in built a million dollars ramp in Indianapolis to beat the world record for car jump. The attempt was successful: the car jumped into the air at 101 meters.
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Indy 500, the brand which specializes in toy cars decided to re-size their creations and try to beat the world record. It was stuntman Tanner Foust who was appointed to accomplish this feat: beat the previous record of 9 meters.
His vehicle, designed by engineers of the mark, raced on a 30-meter ramp and got a breathtaking jump on a distance of 101 meters, smashing the previous record.
The car was then landed smoothly, helped by the huge fireball suspensions. The team and the crowd rejoiced and celebrated the driver’s success. A performance that looks like it’s taken from kids’ games.
