Video: BMW X5 falls on its head after unsuccessful barrel-roll stunt

We’re curious to know if at any point before the driver of this BMW X5 decided to turn his SUV into a Dukes of Hazzard stunt car did he honestly think that he could successfully complete an airborne barrel roll without doing his car – and himself – any harm.

We’re wondering that because we can’t, for the life of us, comprehend how he could honestly think of pulling it off given the girth of the SUV he was driving. Then again, crazy nut jobs do crazy things and this guy certainly qualifies for somebody who’s got a few loose bolts in his head that certainly need a lot of tightening.

That being said, we still enjoyed watching the video – we do hope the driver didn’t suffer any injuries – only because idiotic stunts like this remind us that performing stunts with your own car usually doesn’t end well for all parties involved.

This video was hair-rising. To think that there is a person inside driving the car when he miscalculated the ramp and fell on the wrong place at the wrong time.

Even at the start of the race I have a feeling that it wouldn’t be safe to continue
the stunt. However, if the airbag in his car works out then he is lucky!

Ouch!It seems that attempting to make stunt using your won car is not a good idea afterall! I bet the drive had a minor injuries for this unsuccessful attempt i just hope that it doesn’t break his legs!

Be careful friends, they should be aware of the result of this stunt may hurt them so badly. Don’t forget to put your seatbelts.

That’s so uncool!, a BMW tumbling in dirt is a massive failure.
