When Top Gear Live recently attempted - and succeeded - the first double loop stunt in history, you knew that at some point in time, somebody was going to try to replicate it.

Apparently, that ’point in time’ is about to happen at the end of the month.

Hot Wheels is planning its next big stunt, and it’s going to take the concept of the double loop and add a pretty serious twist to it by having two drivers do it side by side. The bar has definitely been raised.

Hot Wheels is no stranger to wild stunts like this. Last year, Tanner Foust broke into the Guinness Book of World Records by setting a record jump at the Indy 500. You all remember that, right?

Well, the toy company’s penchant for stunts and theatrics will come alive once more at the end of the month during the 2012 X Games in Los Angeles. Check out the teaser video to see what we’re all in store for when Hot Wheels don their Evel Knievel capes once again.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
