* An old Windows screensaver had a motorcyclist jump over a random number of school buses. On occasion, the bus jumps over a row of motorcycles.

This article is not about you. Never say "I" in an example.
** In a lot of these examples, the 'leap' is possible..... just not the landing. They went through a lot of General Lees as I recall.

** Naturally, one of these jumps was in TheFilmOfTheSeries. The Series/MythBusters demonstrated that the claimed jump distance was entirely possible. Driving away, on the other hand ....

Unfortunately (as proven by ''Series/MythBusters''), a Ramp Jump is nowhere ''near'' as easy to execute as it looks in fiction: The car should ideally land with all four wheels hitting the ground simultaneously, but in RealLife, the vehicle will tend to pitch downwards in flight, causing it to hit the ground nose first (instead of on all fours) with an impact force similar to any other head-on impact: Severe damage to the car's engine and frame (doubly so for sports cars, whose frames are specifically ''designed'' to crumple on impact[[note]]because softening the blow of impact makes the crash less deadly to the driver/passengers[[/note]]), which leaves the car in a more or less inoperable state.

* ''Videogame/PlanetSide 2'' has many natural ramps for the [[BigBadassRig Sunderer]], Flash [[CoolBike quadbike]], and [[CoolCar Harasser]] to take. The Harasser and Flash are capable of rolling mid-air, but tend to uncontrollably nosedive in prolonged flight, while the Sunderer just kinda flops and rolls over before exploding. Vehicles are capable of surviving surprisingly long falls, but they will outright explode if they hit something while moving too fast. The Flash has a unique type of NitroBoost that effectively acts like a rocket, allowing it to alter its trajectory mid-flight.

* In an episode of the TV series of ''Anime/FutureGPXCyberFormula'', Hayato and his navigator Elena participated in a [[BloodSport no-rules race]] called "Fireball", and during the race, they were chased by a racer with a huge truck-like car and the driver bumped his car, the Asurada GSX. Then Hayato saw a car with a ramp and used Asurada's effect fans to jump on the rail and escaped from the racer in the truck.

* ''KnightRider'' did this more than once. Usually, the "turbo boost" button was involved.

* ''Pinball/{{NBA}}'' has the left jump ramp, which vaults pinballs towards the playfield basket; a magnet in the backboard grabs the ball and drops it through the hoop.
