Ken Block’s Gymkhana 7 released [video]
Ken Block is back in Gymkhana 7 and this time the shoe magnate turned racer, turned YouTube sensation is tearing up Los Angeles.
KEN BLOCK IS BACK. Last night Gymkhana 7 hit the internet and shows racer and YouTube darling, Ken Block tearing around the streets of Los Angeles.
It’s apt that on the same day Ford reveals its 2016 Ford Mustang Shelby GT350, which is a throwback to the 1965 original, Block should drop his video showing off his own all-wheel drive 1965 Ford Mustang RTR which runs a Roush-Yates 6.7-litre V8 and thumps out a staggering 845hp.
Block has said that months and months went into the planning of Gymkhana 7 and that some scenes were scrapped until permission came through at the 11th hour, one of those scenes is an aerial shot of Block racing up to a small patch of ground above the iconic Hollywood sign.
Even if you’re not into this sort of smoke and slide you can’t help but appreciate the guy’s talent, and the sort of planning that must have gone into this video. Enjoy.
