I wonder how much they paid the city.
$1 million to the city. Filming took 4 days and was all done during off peak times. They didn't even fully shut down the bridge, rolling blockades were used by police to slow down traffic in both directions to get clear shots.

Where'd you get that info? I'd like to read up more on the "how it's made" bit of that.

I commuted back and forth to school in a 1978 Ford Fiesta, so pretty sure I could pull off most, if not all of those stunts.

I was a huge Vaughn Gitten JR fan, then I saw Ken Block do his thing. That boy is a beast.

Pretty much all cars are made to handle those jumps, right?
No, it was a bone stock '78, far inferior to Ken's ride, so should give an idea of the extreme level of difficulty and skill required... :)

I'm almost as impressed with the cinematography as I am with the driving. Almost.

Even after witnessing some rough WRC landings, I was surprised that Ford survived any of those landings without some serious damage.

Considering they basically strip that "Ford" completely and put parts in it you and I will never be able to afford the only thing Ford about it is the shell. :p

I am a big hater of paddle shifters but that sequential transmission is f'n sexy. I want that in my car.
