Rob Dyrdek, MTV-reality and action sports-star, decided to do something no man has successfully done in a car. Out at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California, Dyrdek strapped himself into an all-new 2012 Chevy Sonic and performed a kickflip in it – that’s a 360-degree rotation in mid-air.

This was of course part of MTV’s Fantasy Factory and they were onsite filming for season five’s premiere, but of course other people were also on hand to capture the quickly executed stunt to share with us before the show’s premiere. This is also a good marketing move for Chevrolet and their new Sonic, since Dyrdek is a self-proclaimed Chevy guy.

Check out the video of Dyrdek becoming the first man to successfully kickflip a car after the break.
