This brings a whole new meaning to Drive by Wire.  The new Jaguar XF crosses the Thames on wires.

The tyres are grooved so the wire runs through them. I have seen it on tv done for real was just two wires and an xr3

I'd rather have seen it driving on a road, perhaps using the bridge to be honest. Looks like a smart car. Designers did a better job than the PR department.

There are also heavy steel guides either side of each tyre. So really...all safety aspects are well covered in that respect, when it's so visible just make the stunt slightly less of a stunt Still maybe a good advertising gimmick for them, didnt even know there was a world record for such a thing in the first place
