¡GO Espíd Racer! 15 Simply Awesome, Badass & Unintentionally Hilarious Shots of President Felipe Calderón Behind the Wheel

His Wikipedia page reads like a PR intern’s wet dream: “[He’s] created the most universities (96) in the history of Mexico,” he has also established “more than 1,000 hospitals, and reconstructed and amplified more than 2,000 existing ones,” he leaps tall buildings in a single bound, once rescued a little old lady’s cat who was stuck high up an agave flower spike, and teaches the Macarena to underprivileged children.

He’s Felipe Calderón Hinojosa, Mexico’s 56th President who we honor today, on the day of his country’s Independence with a gallery of him manning several different types of vehicles.

Historically, heads of state do not drive during their term but ever the defiant party boy, Calderón makes his own rules and jumps at every single opportunity he gets to be behind the wheel with gusto. For that, we salute him.

Cheers!
