Video: Ken Block’s Gymkhana Five

Kenny from the Block is back and shredding tyres in San Francisco

Internet, ASSEMBLE!

You know who Ken Block is. You know what he does. And we've just been sent his latest Gymkhana video.

In the fifth installment of his Gymkhana series, Ken takes his loyal hoonigan- approved H.F.H.V, or "Hybrid Function Hoon Vehicle for a very sideways, very airborne and very smokey trip around the streets of San Francisco to begin his War On Tyres; on this evidence, both Block and Clarkson are keeping the entire tyre industry afloat. Probably.

Speaking of which, that's where Block ends this epic little vid. Afloat. Filmed over four days, Block starts with a quick blat across Bay Bridge before grabbing his on-board drift-stick to let the tyre-shredding commence.

There are donuts around trams, Travis Pastrana, and a barge in San Francisco bay, but - and we don't want to spoil the surprise - when he hits the hills and world famous Lombard Street, prepare to be amazed.

Has Steve McQueen's Bullitt lost the title of ‘Greatest San Francisco Car Video'? Let us know in the comments below.
