The stunt, which has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on YouTube, took dangerous driving to new levels.

Police in Spain have arrested two men for carrying out a stunt with a white van; driving along with it on top of a Ford Focus.

Police have identified both the driver of the Ford Focus and the man who filmed the stunt, on an industrial estate in Segovia, northwest of Madrid.

On Tuesday, local police launched a search for the pair, who could face minimum fines of €500 for dangerous driving.

The video of the stunt, uploaded to YouTube on November 6th, has been viewed nearly 290,000 times.

In the clip, the man behind the camera shouts: "You must be from Zamora!" at the driver, who drives slowly while the white van, taken from a nearby scrap yard, balanced precariously on top of his car.

The case has been sent to a court in Segovia, where the men will appear on charges of dangerous driving.
