Sources disagree on the exact length of this jump, but the consensus is that it was a bajillion feet, give or take. And while the car looked to survive the jump with no ill-effects, the poster at least seems convinced a distance record was shattered. The Instagram post claims a record-breaking 196 feet but Offroad.com is only comfortable confirming “120+.” Regardless of the actual distance, it is pretty clearly a gigantic jump. The roughly two and a half seconds of air time may not seem like a lot, but to get the claimed 196 feet on this jump, they would have to be moving around 55 Mph through the air. Two and a half seconds is a long time to be hurtling at highway speeds through the air.

Let’s see a stock Ford Raptor do that.
