Return to Snake River
But for me there was none cooler than Evel Knievel.
He was equal parts Muhammed Ali, George Best and David Bowie.
On a motorbike.
His biggest most ridiculous and ultimately most famous stunt was went he attempted to jump the Snake River Canyon in a what was loosely termed a rocketship.
Truth be told it was anything but a rocket and the stunt failed. Sadly.
38 years later for some obscure reason Audi decided to recreate the Snake River jump to promote the Audi RS5.
With a 4.2L 450hp V8 engine under the bonnet the RS5 is obviously seriously powerful.
Whether it's powerful enough to pull off what Evel Knievel couldn't remains to be seen.
Makes for a cracking little video though.
