Everyone from Red Bull to Hot Wheels have been shocking crowds in recent eyears with their dare-deviling stunts. Now we can add Monster and MINI Cooper to that list.
 
Claiming it's the world's first — and I wouldn't oppose such a claim — MINI and Monster teamed up with Frenchman Rally Raid world champ Guerlain Chicherit to accomplish this backflip which completed a landing on snow. Sure, they added some rad suspension, but this stunt reportedly took four years of preparation.

According to the descprition, this stunt was shot in Tignes, France.
