Watch Travis Pastrana send an 862bhp Subaru 165mph through the air

… and perform other feats of motorised chaos. Welcome to Pastrana’s Gymkhana 2022

Welcome to The Adventures of The Family Huckster. Or perhaps they should be misadventures, considering the audacity of throwing a modified block of Eighties Japanese wagon through the air at 165mph.

Travis Pastrana has delivered, quite literally, his ode to sideways heroics with one of the wildest Gymkhana instalments in the series. Taking over from Ken Block, Pastrana’s brief is thus: take a humble Subaru GL Wagon, stick loads of power in it, call in some favours from friends with choppers and planes and monster trucks, unleash chaos.

Job well and truly done, we’d proffer. “The GL Wagon is an iconic Subaru that I thought would be pretty rad to see flying through the air,” Pastrana said at the car’s reveal earlier this year. This is about as literal a description of his new video as possible. Especially considering it’s titled ‘Travis Pastrana goes beserk in Florida’.

You can learn a little more about the modified GL Wagon here, but if you came here for 'gawp in wide-eyed wonder at some automotive acrobatics' as opposed to ‘reading’, then hit play below and suspend thine belief.
