Ford wanted to explore the idea of the one tank adventure, so they enlisted the help of YouTube sensation and extreme documentarian Devin Graham (a.k.a. Devin SuperTramp). If anyone knows how to squeeze every last possible ounce of adrenaline out of a tank of gas, it’s Devin. His YouTube videos and Instagram photos feature everything from sling-shotting to salt boarding.
In a series of videos, Devin and his crew set out to demonstrate what you can do with a limitless thirst for excitement and a freshly-gassed Ford to take them anywhere. So what did they do?
Piloting supped-up longboards down a winding road, Devin and his squad of like-minded thrill seekers give the agile Ford Focus ST a lesson in handling. Check out the awesome video as they skillfully finesse their skateboards down a twisting, tree-lined mountain pass at speeds you didn’t think possible without a motor. See what happens when gravity and momentum dance on a 4-foot plank with wheels.
Want to walk across the Grand Canyon on a tightrope? Devin and his crew sure did. So they grabbed their gear, piled it into the back of a Ford Explorer and set off down a dirt road with a full tank of gas and a rush to chase. Armed with a few petons, some rope and nerves of steel, Devin and the team perform acrobatic antics hundreds of feet above the canyon floor. Click here to watch as remote-controlled camera copters catch the feats of daring and majestic vistas from incredible angles.
Devin won’t rest until he’s conquered every extreme stunt our collective imagination can conjure up for him. Check out the Ford MPGAnd YouTube channel for even more one tank adventure videos, including a base-jumping exhibit that you just can’t miss.
