    Video: Micra loaded in the back of Titan pickup truck (Nissan official video)

    This is neat:



    I have no idea how realistic/safe it is in terms of how it affects the stability/driveability of the truck though!

    I guess that's why the video has disclaimers about "stunt drivers" and "prototype vehicle" in it.

    They had a Cup car in the back?

    Did the mechanism look custome? I've seen a similar setup for hauling a pair of snowmobiles.

    I build and repair these types of systems. They are called roll offs and are made by a bunch of different companies and have various design differences. They are very popular with equipment rental companies.

    You make these for pickups? I've seen roll-off beds on larger trucks (like flatbed towtrucks).

    I have seen a few pickups with a similar setup as this, but with 2 snowmobiles side-by-side, not a small car!
