The Amazing Motorcycle Stunt From The No Time To Die Teaser Was Unbelievably Done For Real

The Amazing Motorcycle Stunt From The No Time To Die Teaser Was Unbelievably Done For Real

The first trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie, No Time To Die, will be released Wednesday morning, but the little 15-second teaser reel that came out last night already features one incredible motorcycle stunt that was mostly done for real.

No Time To Die is the fifth and supposedly final James Bond movie for Bond actor Daniel Craig. It also happens to feature more notable vehicles than...

Pulling Off A J-Turn Is Easier Than You Think

Pulling Off A J-Turn Is Easier Than You Think

Pulling off a J-turn, a driving stunt where you reverse at speed, turn the car around 180-degrees, and then continue driving forward, is easier than you think.

That is, it’s easier than you think on a closed course in the presence of and with permission from trained professionals with ready access to medical resources should something go wrong.

(Full Disclosure: Mini flew me out to Palm...

Watch A Rally Driver Break Down Some Classic Movie Driving Scenes

Watch A Rally Driver Break Down Some Classic Movie Driving Scenes

Anyone who doesn’t live under a rock already know that cinematic driving scenes and stunts don’t exactly make sense in the real world (but, I mean, who goes to the movies to feel like they’re watching real life anyway?). But if you’ve ever wondered what it would be like for an actual, professional driver to break down some of the more classic driving scenes in recent film history, then, my...

Watch Fast Five’s Stunt Coordinator Break Down Its Breathtaking Vault Chase

Watch Fast Five’s Stunt Coordinator Break Down Its Breathtaking Vault Chase

As you all already know, I am a Fast and Furious stan. I love everything about those stupid movies, but there is not one scene I love more than the vault-dragging scene from Fast Five. It’s a classic, breathless action sequence and finally I get to see it broken down bit-by-bit by its stunt coordinator.

If you haven’t seen Fast Five (and boy, are you missing out) the film’s climactic scene...

Stoppies Are Stupid But I Still Want To Play With This Ridiculous Rig

Stoppies Are Stupid But I Still Want To Play With This Ridiculous Rig

The UK’s very own Stunt Asylum has been training people how to be two-wheeled asshats for years, but in a safe, sane, controlled environment. Now they’ve added a new tool to their arsenal and I desperately, desperately want to catch a plane to play with it.

They’re calling it a “stoppie bike” and it does exactly what...

Spinning Is South Africa's Answer to the Question of Adrenaline

Spinning Is South Africa's Answer to the Question of Adrenaline
Your browser does not support HTML5 video tag.Click here to view original GIF

South Africa is the only place spinning could have started. Home to 850,000 people and a history bathed in the blood of the 1976 youth uprisings, Soweto is a town accustomed to danger, to violence, to the kind of ‘fuck you’ attitude that can only come through finding liberation from decades of oppression. And...

If you are like me and saw the incredible green E28 BMW 5 Series in the Mission: Impossible Fallout trailer and immediately caught the disease of desire for one, I have bad news. The movie comes out this week, it’s surprisingly great, and now everyone else is also going to want an E28.

As you may have seen from the...

Travis Pastrana Lands Three Incredible Jumps To Break Evel Knievel's Record

Travis Pastrana Lands Three Incredible Jumps To Break Evel Knievel's Record

Over 400 feet of total jumps have been completed by Travis Pastrana tonight in Las Vegas: one jump over 52 cars, one jump over 16 buses, and one jump over the fountain in front of Caesars Palace hotel and casino—breaking three of legendary daredevil Evel Knievel’s most insane records. I was there, and it was an astonishing event. It was worthy of the fanfare, the pomp, and the circumstance.

There were just a couple dudes working on a cliffside when suddenly–a Eurocopter AS350 helicopter pops up like a playful sea otter and performs a rolly-flippy dance that might make you queasy just watching it from the ground. It is most excellent.

I’m not totally sure if this is a new or an old video but it blew my...

Travis Pastrana does things in all kinds of vehicles that I probably wouldn’t even attempt in Grand Theft Auto, which is why he’s so fun to watch. Check out a solid hour of him and his lunatic friends doing stunts in Action Figures 2, a classic action sports-style movie that went live today.

The goofballs at Hoonigan turned an old Volvo V60 (RIP) into what is basically a full-sized Crazy Cart and proceeded to do the tightest donuts physically possible. Or maybe it’s more like a portable Disneyland teacup ride... deathtrap. Looks fun.

Seems like a lot of work for a few laughs and upset stomachs,...

What's The Craziest Vehicular Stunt Ever?

What's The Craziest Vehicular Stunt Ever?

There’s stunting, and then there’s stunting. Soaring through the air, doing a barrel roll or a flip, or generally just jumping canyons on a motorcycle, stunts are an integral part of the vehicular experience. Even if you don’t always stick the landing, the craziest is always the best.

Obviously, Evel Knievel is the once-and-always king of stunts. He brought the genre to the mainstream in a way...

This Big Rig Barrel-Roll Recovery Is Epic Even If You Hate Video Games

This Big Rig Barrel-Roll Recovery Is Epic Even If You Hate Video Games

I have a really hard time getting excited over GTA V stunts, because, who cares it didn’t really happen. But I’ve watched this big rig jump, roll, and re-connect to its trailer like ten times already because it’s actually really freaking neat.

Don’t know if this is some “hack” or “cheat code” because I’m not a nerd but it sure is fun to watch. I mean, actually, I am a nerd I just don’t know...

Weren't You Looking For A Fun Way To Break Your Legs?

Weren't You Looking For A Fun Way To Break Your Legs?

These crazy Germans have packed a tiny engine into a case of beer, strapped a set of handlebars to it and combined with some “braking shoes” have created a terrible contraption that looks as fun as it does dangerous.

The thing actually sounds pretty vicious in the very best way. Plust the pilot remembered to wear a helmet! So he’s got that going for him, which is nice.

Don’t try this at home...

The Father And Daughter Stunt Drivers In Some Of Today's Biggest Action Movies

Stunt driving is an extremely intense, high pressure and dangerous profession, but it’s extremely rewarding for both the audiences that get to enjoy the crazy action on screen and the people that get to do the driving.

One father-daughter duo have made stunt driving the family business. Jalil Jay Lynch started teaching his daughter, Brionna, how to ride motorcycles and drive at the age of...

Watch A School Bus (Barely) Jump 20 Motorcycles

Sure, you can jump a school buses with a motorcycle, but what about jumping motorcycles with a bus? One brave stuntman asked this question in the most testing manner possible.

Jimmy “the Flying Greek” Koufis executed this jump back in 1980, as part of the pre-show for the Volunteer 500 NASCAR Busch series race at Bristol. Koufis actually worked as a bus driver in California.

People Used To Just Crash Motorcycles Into Things For Fun At NASCAR Races

People Used To Just Crash Motorcycles Into Things For Fun At NASCAR Races

“NASCAR used to just be better,” old people who are very annoying and probably just liked mustaches and cocaine and are definitely right tend to say. But how correct could they possibly be? Well, to put it into perspective, people used to get into horrific motorcycle crashes before the race even started, and that was just for fun.

The guy walked, even jumped away, doing kicks and...

The Chevy SS Looks So Bland You Can Swap It For A Malibu In A Movie And No One Will Notice

Actor Dax Shepard is a friend of Jalopnik who likes to make fun movies that feature cool cars and bikes. Because I live the #dadlife, I finally got around to watching one of Shepard’s more recent films, CHiPs. Co-staring along with Shepard is a Chevy SS. If you saw the film, did you catch the swap when the SS meets its fiery end?

How To Kill A Jeep Using Mostly Two Wheels

You’re bored. You have a beater truck and some open space. Why not put it up on two wheels and see what happens?

A quiet weekend day at Harris Hill Raceway cursing out my broken Volkswagen was interrupted by the lovely sights and sounds of these dudes pretending to be Stadium Super Truck drivers in a Jeep Grand Cherokee. I had just smashed the crap out of one of my knuckles with...
