Daredevil Rob Dyrdek proved that you can ride a new Chevrolet Sonic like a skateboard...but don’t try this at home!

Rob Dyrdek and the Sonic made history in leaps and bounds as the famed reality TV star commandeered Chevrolet’s hot, new sub-compact in a gravity defying “kickflip” at Six Flags in Valencia.

Thousands of automotive thrill seekers jammed Magic Mountain park to witness the 360 degree “kickflip” which utilized two 50 foot ramps - one to launch and one to land the specially wrapped Sonic.

Dyrdek’s Sonic feat was evocative of the iconic automotive stunt depicted in the 1974 James Bond film “ The Man With The Golden Gun.”

The “Kickflip” stunt follows the “Sonic Skydive” wherein a Sonic was parachuted from a plane at 14,000 feet, and the “Sonic Bungee Jump” - a stunt which literally launched the new Sonic from a 100 foot tower while tethered to an elastic bungee cord.
