WATCH: Stuntman Rides World's Largest Loop At Shanghai's Bund

A stuntman from the UK, Terry Grant, wowed spectators on Friday night by driving a car upside down on a 19 meter tall Hot Wheels-esque loop set up along Shanghai's north Bund area. 


Around the height of a six-story building, the track is currently the largest 360 degree vertical loop in the world. It took an excess of 200 hours to rebuild in the Middle Kingdom. The same track was previously used at 2015's Frankfurt Motor Show where Grant also rode through the loop, breaking a Guinness World Record in the process. 


The car had to accelerate to over 80 kilometers an hour before hitting the loop to prevent the car from dropping 19 meters and injuring the driver. Grant reportedly would have had to withstand a G-force of 6.5 while making the circle, comparable to what an astronaut would feel during lift-off. The floating attraction will be shipped off to another location fairly soon, so see it while you can.
