Block is Back: Gymkhana Eight Debuts

Chances are you’re familiar with Ken Block.

In his series of wildly popular Gymkhana videos, the rally cross racer has taken his skills and applied them to the streets, where he majestically controls his cars through urban obstacles.

Now, Block has taken to the streets of Dubai in his Ford Fiesta ST to create the Gymkhana 8 video. The Hoonigan team wrapped the car with a cool reflective wrap that will make you think you’re seeing double. The Ford Fiesta ST RX43 is an all-wheel drive custom car. Driven by a turbo four-cylinder engine that puts out 650 horsepower, Block races through the streets of Dubai and is surrounded by some impressive cars like a Ferrari, Porsche and, of course, a Ford Mustang and Raptor. The Sadev 6-speed transmission helps Block keep the turbo spinning, allowing the Ford Ecoboost engine to produce over 900 ft.-lbs. of torque, all while going sideways.
