thats a pretty tuff little car. some of those off angle landings were harsh. surprized the control arms and tires held up..

must have been some amazed home owners watching them film that right by their garages.

It was filmed over 4 days. maybe they did repairs.

that was some pretty impressive driving though, that corner air was super cool.

yea but you can see that sideways jump into sliding corner is one continous shot..

if the car had broke you would have seen it.

all in all its a awesome peice of filming and car handling no doubt.

I'm sure he says he's really disappointed, and he probably is a little disappointed, but he has to be pretty happy with life getting paid what he get's paid and being able to do that in SF.

Amazing! I can't believe I missed the entire filming of this! Anyone know any links to the details of the filming process? I'm curious to see when they filmed and how they were able to close off the streets.

Mind is blown. That was awesome using the actual definition of the word.

Styx? Come sail away? Really??? Oi. Geeze, why not go all the way and use Mr Roboto?

Logistics of closing down half the city to film this would've been challenging - hard to control some random pedestrian or kid just popping onto the empty street at the wrong time!

Interesting to see him throw a hipper with a car.

It's even more amazing considering the advanced teleportation technology that the vehicle is using to jump from location to location. You'd think that would have an advantage in racing.

Cause doing small-diameter donuts is so helpful on a high-speed offroad course!

In fairness… extremely tight hairpin 180s are a very common part of many WRC courses…
