Mitsubishi Travels ‘Death Road’ So We Won’t Ever Have To

As our fear of heights gets worse with age, just watching images on the computer of Yungas Road–aka “Death Road”–in Bolivia makes one weak in the knees. But a few brave souls decided for whatever reason to test out the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport’s all-wheel drive system on what Inter-American Development bank apparently dubbed “the world’s most dangerous road” back in 1995. The automaker and agency 180 LA aren’t strangers to such crazy stunts, of course, as they just broke five Guinness world records in February for their 24-hour experiment on Canada’s frozen Ghost Lake.

This time around, the crew including production company Boxer and director Jordan Valenti (armed with a 360 cam) decided to head down to South America last month to take part in what’s being touted as the first commercial shot on Yungas, which is single-lane, lacks any guard rails and oh yeah, there’s that whole 1,800-foot cliff drop-off *shudder*. Well, fortunately it looks like they all lived to tell the tale. So what’s next gang, something involving the Burj Dubai? Credits after the jump.

180LA Helps Mitsubishi Break Five World Records in 24 Hours

Drawing inspiration from the world’s first online test drive, in which the Mitsubishi Outlander Sport was awarded its first Guinness World Record for the longest distance driven by a vehicle operated online, 180LA took the automaker’s Outlander and Outlander Sport to Alberta Canada’s Ghost Lake to showcase the tech wares of said vehicles and break as many world records possible within 24 hours.

Driven by stuntman Garvin Cross, the SUV and CUV broke five world records: Greatest distance driven by a vehicle in reverse on snow in 30 seconds, shortest braking distance by a vehicle on ice, most vehicle figure eights on ice in two minutes, fastest vehicle slalom relay on ice and fastest driven square lap, which all in all dubbed Mitsubishi the most awarded family of all-wheel drive vehicles in its class, so the automaker claims.
