Mini and champion rally driver Guerlain Chicherit have teamed up for this publicity stunt, completing the first unassisted backflip in a full sized car (not quite stock). Red Bull attempted the same stunt in 2009 with Pikes Peak champion Rhys Millen, but he crashed on landing.

More detail at The Age (or any number of other places probably!).
