Death-Defying Polaris RZR XP1000 Gymkhana Will Take Your Breath Away

It's hard to imagine a better way to advertise a tough off-road machine than to send it into thew wild and have it thrashed as hard and mercilessly as possible. However, when things move into place as they should, the result is insanely cool.. pretty much like this Polaris RZR XP1000 gymkhana is.
The RZR is a one-off heavily modified machine: besides being probably the most powerful and evil UTV to hit the market, this particular vehicle was loaded with state-of-the-art technology and parts, to add both extra nerve and help it withstand the terrific abuse it had to go through.

With pro rider RJ Anderson behind the wheel, it looks like the 2014 RZR XP1000 can defy may of the physics laws. The video was shot at Eagle Mountain, an abandoned iron mine east of Palm Springs, California.

As the credits start rolling up at the end, please check 10:02 for what had to be a 50-foot drop. The scene did not make it as the landing was extremely brutal due to a high-speed compression setting error, which basically locked the suspensions upon landing.

The drop was so hard that RJ's foot smashed through the floor of the machine, luckily with no severe injuries. Via Ride Apart.

Do not attempt to replicate any of the stunts in this video.
