Real-World Stunts Performed In Life-Sized Hot Wheels Cars [Video]

Toy car manufacturer attempts a dangerous stunt to set a world record.

Hot Wheels is known for producing detailed toy cars, but what most people don’t know is that it has a dedicated team of staff that goes out to perform stunt in actual vehicles. Stunt drivers are breaking world records in life-sized Hot Wheel cars, like the recent corkscrew jump performed by Brent Fletcher.

Fletcher drove the Hot Wheels buggy flying through mid-air and twisting it just in time to barely land the vehicle on all four wheels 92 feet away. The video of the world record has gone viral, reaching over 2 million views in a week. Hot Wheels has already set three world records with its fun, entertaining, and often dangerous approach to branding.

Check out the video of the stunts below.
