Video: Ken Block launches Gymkhana 8
Block heads to Dubai in his all-wheel-drive, 650bhp RX3 Fiesta to do many, many skids
Ladies and gentlemen, your sideways hero has returned. Today, Ken Block has revealed the eighth instalment of his drifty, smoky Gymkhana video series, and it’s a good ‘un.
Fresh from showing off the special new reflective livery on his 650bhp, AWD Ford Fiesta RX3, Block has revealed the full video, dubbed ‘Ultimate Exotic Playground’. For this one, he’s flown to Dubai; there’s even a cheeky shot of Dubai’s famous fleet of super-police cars. Next to a chopper. Obvs.
In fact, once he’s done firing up the Fiesta - and it does sound good - erm, got rid of a leopard, and blasted his way through some sand, those police cars come in handy for boxing him in.
From there on in, Block’s up to his usual tricks. Donuting around a moving Ford Raptor that’s riding on two wheels, a drag race between a Veyron, Ferrari F12, Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Aventador (um, guess who wins), some jumps, and many more skids.
Have a watch and let us know where you think it fits in the pantheon of Block’s Gymkhana efforts.
