After much eager anticipation, the eighth instalment of Ken Block’s super-popular “Gymkhana” video series has arrived, delivering fans a fresh injection of about 6-and-a-half minutes of speeding, sliding, and all around hooniganism of the sort that only Mr. Block can deliver.
Gymkhana 8 takes place in the coastal city of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, which has become an iconic locale owing to its supertall skyline and unique vistas. Making its triumphant return in Gymkhana 8 is the Ford Fiesta ST RX43, debuting that sweet new “ultra reflective” livery seen last week. With 650 horsepower on tap, all-wheel drive, and racing-grade components throughout, it’s possibly one of the best tools for the job.
Also featured: a Ford SVT Raptor pickup riding on two wheels, a 2017 Ford GT, and a whole fleet of supercars lined up conveniently along the road for a drag race. This includes a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari F12, Lamborghini Aventador, and Lexus LFA.
If you haven’t yet seen it, Ken Block’s Dubai hooniganism in Gymkhana 8 is an exciting must-see. Check it out.
