Top Gear's Madmen Decides to Bungee in a Car

The car TV series is getting more extreme every season.

Bungee jumping is an extreme sport which is popular all around the world. It is very risky even for a person under normal conditions, not to mention that no one has ever bungeed in a car before.

During this activity, people tied to a long elastic cord jump from a great height. After jumping, the cord stretches and the jumper flies upwards again. This up-down cycle repeats several times. The fall speed can reach 120 km/h or more. The cord stretches more than three times and the overload during deceleration is from 2.5 to 3.5 g.

One of the TV series' hosts, Freddie Flintoff, volunteered to tickle his nerves with a mad bungee jump inside an MG Rover. The fact is that daredevils decided to check whether the old British convertible’s acceleration results can be better than those of the coolest modern hypercars, which is about 2 seconds. Freddy's terrible cry showed that this was indeed possible. It is quite frightening to jump after him, so better go watch the new season of Top Gear.
