Record-holding stunt driver Russ Swift performs a few tricks with a MINI Cooper.

Here's a video produced by MINI featuring the driving skills of Russ Swift behind the wheel of a MINI Cooper.

The video is meant to show the handling abilities of the MINI Cooper but the acrobatics on hand here are the work of a very exceptional driver.

It's nice to see the two-wheel stunt, usually reserved for Hollywood car chases with more fearsome models, being performed with a MINI. It almost seems quaint with Swift at the wheel.

Swift gets to show his parking skills here too - Blues Brothers style. Swift holds several world records - for the tightest parallel park, fastest donut and fastest J-Turn.

The video labels the MINI the "arch enemy of boredom" but this is not something one could recommend you try at home.
