Top Gear’s favourite Ken converts his Subaru STI into… the world’s fastest snow cat

It might seem like we're a bit obsessed with Ken ‘Gymkhana' Block here at TopGear.com.

But we're not. It's just that he keeps doing insanely cool things that we keep finding it necessary to tell you about.

Like turning a Subaru Impreza STI into the world's fastest snow cat. See? We'd be frankly irresponsible if we didn't report that.

Ken's Scooby snow cat packs 400bhp and features four cat tracks in the place of wheels, making it pretty much the ultimate vehicle to hoon around Utah's wintry backcountry in search of, like, powder stashes and pillow lines and that kind of stuff.

"The TRAX STI combines two of my favourite things in life: driving a rally car in the snow and snowboarding in the backcountry," says Block.

He leads a tough life, our Ken. Oversteering snow cats, oversteering rally cars, scaring the bejesus out of James May - how's he going to find time to take on Seb Loeb in the WRC next year?

Just for the record: not obsessed. Oh no...

Now share it...
