2012 Grey Loop Coupe®

This is the Guinness world record-breaking car driven by Tanner Foust at the 2012 X Games in Los Angelesracing two life-size Hot Wheels® cars through the 66-foot Hot Wheels®Double Dare Loop stunt! The racers had to drive exactly 52 mph to make it through the six-story loop without falling off the track. To prepare for the 7 G’s of force they would experience, they practiced loops and inversions in stunt planes.
