Ken Block returns in Gymkhana 6

Article by Christian A., on November 12, 2013

Ken Block drove a 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 rally car through an exciting series of obstacles in the sixth edition of the Gymkhana series of videos. Block, a famous professional driver and clothing-brand promoter, teamed up with Need for Speed to create the ultimate Gymkhana grid course, “a real-life playground to showcase the sheer speed, fun, and exhilarating action of driving.”

Need for Speed Rivals got Block as a racing advisor. What they put together really looks like a video game. Block is drifting sideways in perfect figure-eights under a couple of huge backhoe loaders, reminiscent of old Tony Hawk skating games. Block drives the 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43 and proves that this 650-hp, 650 lb-ft rally car can go from zero to 60 mph in 1.8 seconds.

Block shows how easily the car can move through Lamborghini Aventador supercars and around Segways. The wrecking ball in Block’s video is covered in spikes, and his rally car quickly goes around it over and over. The most interesting part is the interior shots, showing how calm Block is throughout the entire process. It even features a unique vantage point that moves whenever he pulls on the car’s hydraulic handbrake.
