Gymkhana Eight

Ken Block’s tire shredding awesomeness known as Gymkhana needs no introduction. The city of Dubai seems to have been shut down solely for the purpose of filming the 650 horsepower Ford Fiesta RX43 that goes 0-60 in 1.8 seconds!!!

The film is pure gymkhana and hits all the right buttons, there are supercars, exotic driving locations, cool stunts, and downright awesome cinematography. There’s also a ton of ford product placement, but we don’t mind.

So without further adieu here is his latest installment, Ken Block’s Gymkhana Eight: Ultimate Exotic Playground; Dubai
