Lotus F1 is known for doing stunts, but this might be the nuttiest: they jumped a truck over one of their F1 cars.

Mike Ryan (the dude who drifts a big rig) drove the truck and co-ordinated the stunt. He's also done work on Fast and the Furious and on Terminator 2. If you can jump a truck once, you can do it again, I guess. Martin Ivanov, who has been in the James Bond and Bourne movies, drove the F1 car.

Amazingly, this also set a world record for jumping a semi, at 83 feet, 7 inches.

So I guess you could say that they just drove an F1 car under a world-record-jumping semi truck and trailer.

It's all about perspective.
