A famous racecar driver just did donuts atop a Miami skyscraper. Wow, just wow.

We’ve seen our share of stunts on the big screen, then we saw this right in our own backyard.

Color us impressed.

Ahead of this weekend’s US Grand Prix and the Formula 1 Fan Festival in Miami, 13-time Grand Prix winner David Coulthard did a smoking series of donuts atop One Thousand Museum Residences.

The 62 story building, created by late architect Zaha Hadid, has a helipad on the roof and that’s where the action went down on Wednesday. How the heck did he get up there? Coulthard’s car was lifted by crane on top of the soaring skyscraper in downtown, then he revved things up.

“Iconic,” DC said after the stunt. “To coin an American phrase, that was awesome!”
