This is not a fake. These are the awesome aerial antics of US rally driver Ken Block and his flying Impreza.
As children, most of us wanted to emulate the kind of car-breaking stunts we witnessed every week in The Dukes of Hazzard, The A-Team and Kinght Rider. But about the closest any of us got was just clearing a log in the garden on a BMX.
Block, the founder of the DC Shoes brand, was not so easily satisfied. He and his rallying team-mate, motocross ace Travis Pastrana, decided to make the biggest official leap in rally-car history. At 52 metres, they succeeded, flying over the specially created ramp in southern California.
The car is the rally-spec Subaru Impreza Block races in the American Rally Championship. The only modification for the jump was the addition of a couple of bags of sand in the boot to balance the weight of the engine. It survived the jump with just one broken suspension arm and a cracked windscreen. Block was uninjured.
The stunt was filmed for US TV show Stunt Junkies, and you can see some footage, and download wallpapers of the jump, at www.ken-block.com.
