Watch this modified MINI JCW Countryman do a backflip in the French Alps

Ever wondered what a MINI Countryman looks like upside down?

If the answer is yes, then you’re in luck. MINI has travelled to the ski resort of Tignes in the French Alps to attempt the world’s first backflip in a car.

The car in question is a heavily modified MINI JCW Countryman, complete with chunky winter tyres, beefed-up suspension and a seriously substantial roll cage.

In the video, you see French rally driver Guerlain Chicherit aim the Countryman at a man-made ramp, seeking to set a new world record by landing the MINI wheels-down on the snow-covered off ramp.
