Ok so what do a plane, a helicopter in flight and a two wheelin’ Raptor have in common, that’s right Ken Block donuts them all in his new Gymkhana video, Gymkhana 8, to be honest I could just copy and paste my last description of Gymkhana 7 as they are both very similar. In 8 Ken drifts and donuts his way round Dubai, in his Ford Fiesta (in a rather fetching new livery) and donuts a moving Ford Raptor driving on two wheels, along with a flying helicopter and a Boeing 747.
Another part of Gymkhana 8 features Ken putting his Fiesta through its paces in a drag race against a Ferrari F12, a Lexus LFA, a Lamborghini Aventador and a Bugatti Veyron. Now there may be some filming trickery here but the little 600+ horsepower Fiesta beats the lot. The common complaint about the Gymkhana videos by internet idiots, is “oh its faked he does so many tries at it you can see the skid marks.” And yes this is true but that doesn’t make it any less of an amazing feat of driving insanity.
Also Ken teases his next Gymkhana video in which he’ll be driving a heavily modified version of the new Ford Focus RS, called the RX which quite frankly will be insane. We only see a rendering of the car for the moment but watch this space.
