Driver filmed attempting crazy U-turn on the edge of a cliff

This driver has just been filmed attempting to make a U-turn on an extremely narrow road. 

Not only does he attempt it off with zero wiggle room, he does it on the edge of a small cliff in the mountains of Southwest China.

In the video, the driver expertly pushes the Honda Civic right up to the side of the mountain. 

It looks like he comes within an inch of the rock wall before finally coming to a stop. 

Then with literally nothing but the cliff behind him, he starts to reverse to the point where his rear wheels are hanging in the air.

It looks like he doesn’t make much headway, but he persists, pulling the car back and forward until eventually, he manages to turn the car around. 

Filmed by the guys behind DrivingSkill on YouTube, the video posted by jfGames has already amassed 8.4 million views.

“I don’t know why I watched. My blood pressure is over 200 now,” one woman said. 

“This is the best 1000-point turn in history,” another said. 

“He bossed that. A lot of people would’ve panicked or revved up too much, but he superbly controlled that,” said a third. 

But not everyone was so impressed.

In fact, some called it a waste of time and poked holes in the video’s logic. 

“How to waste time while giving your car’s engine and tires a hard time,” one said. 

“All this could’ve been avoided if he just put it in reverse and backed up,” another said. 

“So reversing was absolutely off the table?” said a third.

You can watch the crazy footage here!

Another guy pointed out just how potentially damaging this could be to a car, saying the Honda Civic’s undercarriage and exhaust both likely needed to be replaced now. 

Regardless, the driver definitely left us impressed.
