Alfa MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde sets Balloon World Record - Web Exclusive

Alfa MiTo becomes a world record holder with professional stunt driver Terry Grant at the wheel.

Dec 5, 2011

To celebrate the launch of Alfa Romeo's new MiTo Quadrifoglio Verde, the Italian company created a new social media campaign - The MiTo Aquabatic Challenge.

In the video, you can see the sporty Alfa MiTo become a world record holder with professional stunt driver Terry Grant at the wheel. His task was to set a new record for the number of water balloons burst by a car.

The feat now stands at 2738 balloons and is the 20th record held by Alfa Romeo driver Terry Grant. He drove through more than 2500 balloons, which had been arranged to form the iconic serpent and cross Alfa Romeo logo.

Captured using the latest pre-production Red Epic slow-motion camera, the stunt can be viewed in all its glory at www.youtube.com/alfaromeouk
