The truck jumped an incredible 83 feet and 7 inches, which according to EMC and Lotus, who organized the stunt, is new world record.

Stunt coordinator Mike Ryan called it one of his dream stunts, in part because it was one he had never seen done before.

"I've flipped them (big rigs), crashed them every which way you can; the one thing I haven't done is jump a truck and trailer," Ryan said in a behind-the-scenes interview.
