Did You Know?
The cars featured in "Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show" are
custom-built in Europe.
The cars are equipped with a 1,300 cc, 150-horsepower motor built inside a
custom racing chassis.
Show cars weigh just 600 kilograms (approximately 1,322 pounds) and consume
one liter (approximately one quart) of fuel per show.
The cars weigh less than half what a standard production car does. (An
average mid-size car weighs approximately 3,500 pounds.)
In addition to four forward speeds, the cars are equipped with a
custom-designed transmission gearbox that also allows four reverse speeds.
This enables the cars to go as fast in reverse gears as they do in forward
Design components in the cars include the latest in safety and technology.
Among the features: a NASCAR-style fire-suppression system, speed sensors
and an on-board computer that assists drivers with maintaining proper speeds
for precision stunt jumps.
On-stage pyrotechnics during the show include fireballs that billow 40 feet
Drivers wear the same driving suits as professional racecar drivers.
Guests aboard the Disney's Hollywood Studios Backlot Tour can sometimes get a

Extreme Stunt Show." The recently redesigned backlot tram tour route passes
