The infamous white-knuckle racing spirit of John Cooper Works has inspired yet another spectacle of high-octane gymnastics. After getting a taste of Guerlain Chicherit’s impressive auto-acrobatic skills in the industrial port of Lyon, he’s set to take his MINI backflip act to new heights — this time touching down on a snowy landing pad in the French Alps.

Not to be eclipsed by a past performance, Chicherit has upped the ante for this latest aerial exploit. The frigid snowscape of the Tignes Ski Resort (with its dramatic alpine panorama) serves as a striking backdrop for Chicherit’s brazen leap of faith.
