WELL-EQUIPPED CHEVROLET SONIC BREAKS WORLD RECORD

Here at Landers McLarty Chevrolet, we're big fans of the 2014 Chevrolet Sonic, whether in its sedan body style or hatchback.

The Sonic offers our Huntsville, Alabama area drivers a spacious and comfortable cabin, equipped with numerous standard features like Bluetooth, OnStar emergency communications, and keyless entry.

But pro-skater and reality TV star, Rob Dyrdek, has other reasons to favor the Chevy.

He enhanced his Sonic with various Chevrolet auto parts and accessories, including a roll cage, racing seats, and a fuel cell. Why did Dyrdek opt for the overhaul?

It wasn't to create a Sonic with groundbreaking performance, but to build a Chevy with record-breaking skills.

Following the alterations, Dyrdek took the Chevrolet hatchback off a ramp to land the Guiness Book of World Records' "Farthest Reverse Ramp Jump by a Car"-- an impressive 89 feet and 3.25 inches. Watch him in action here:
