Don’t eat your lunch/breakfast/brunch just yet; we’ve got a crazy Top Gear VR video to show you before you lose it.
The BBC just debuted the first of three new 360 videos for the motoring series. Produced with the help of UK-based Rewind, the video puts you in the kind of ridiculously explosive stunt the series is known for. There’s also the usual antics, including a cameo from everyone’s favorite speechless racer, The Stig. You can watch it in the video below.
I was serious about the lunch bit, though; making that massive jump at 75mph then crashing back down into the road doesn’t look incredibly comfortable. You can watch the stunt from outside of the vehicle straight after, too.
If you want to see the footage in VR all you’ll need to do is boot up the YouTube smartphone app, click the headset icon in the video and then slot it into a VR viewer. Other headsets like Oculus Go, Google Daydream and PSVR also have native apps you can use for the best results.
The next film in the series will have viewers jumping over a mini-music festival. After that there’s another jump over a supermarket carpark in a Kia. Finally, the crew will release a behind-the-scenes video of how it pieced together all of this incredibly responsible action.
For Rewind, it’s not the first VR car crash the team’s made. Earlier this year we wrote about Curfew, a tie-in app that puts you in VR’s most comfortable crash. We’re starting to worry about the team’s driving skills, though.
