Look out, Daniel Craig – there may be a new 007 in town.

Professional skateboarder Rob Dyrdek is accustomed to performing death-defying feats with nothing but a board between him and the pavement, but this weekend he got behind the wheel of a Chevrolet Sonic to perform a nerve-wracking stunt taken straight out of a James Bond car chase.

On Saturday, Dyrdek, 37, buckled up and put the pedal to the metal in order to replicate the “kickflip,” which involved spiraling the vehicle in mid-air as it sailed between two ramps.

The mind-boggling maneuver was originally seen in the 1974 James Bond movie The Man with the Golden Gun.
