Spiral car jump

Here's a scene from the James Bond film The Man with the Golden Gun. It's not a very good movie (I never liked Roger Moore's Bond) and it's completely absurd to try to pretend that a jump like this could have been done off the cuff. But it's the most amazing car stunt I've ever seen.

The ridiculous slide whistle almost ruins it. Here's another shot of the jump without it.

And here's a clip of a few other cars doing the same thing. The head-on shot from 0:18 to 0:44 just blows me away.

There are a few articles and blogposts online that have some interesting detail about this stunt and the people who did it. See here, here, here, and here.
