We ranked today's muscle cars in terms of one thing and one thing only: Horsepower. Welcome to the pony show, people.
Hear that sound? That's the sound of the drift, rally, and stunt driving worlds releasing a single, collectively held breath: Ken Block's long-awaited Gymkhana EIGHT is a go, made official by the announcement of his latest Franken-car earlier today. How this 650-hp, reflective paint-splattered Ford Fiesta Fiesta ST RX 43 stacks up to rest of Block's Gymkhana stable remains to be seen, but rest assured, Gymkhana EIGHT, which drops February 28th at 9pm PST (Midnight EST) on the Ford Performance YouTube, is sure to be a mind scrambler. Mark your calendars and start counting down the days, hours, minutes, and seconds until take off.
This is going to be one sick little car
Tuerck'd's coverage of Gymkhana Grid 2015 is officially a wrap, with event co-host Ryan Tuerck taking home "Hero Battle" bragging rights in Ken Block's Ford Escort Mk2 RS. Check out his face-off with RWD champ, Luke Woodham, as well as some smokey night drifting from the truly epic demo party and a quick dip with the Monster Girls. Living the dream doesn't even begin to describe it.
Listen, we all knew Gymkhana EIGHT was going to be a little nuts. Blasting around the streets of Dubai in a Ford Fiesta that can do 0-60 in 1.8 seconds isn't something sane people do, after all. But we weren't prepared for THIS. We don't want to spoil any of the surprises—though there are plenty—but we will say that Ken Block, Ford Performance, and XDubai pulled out every last stop for this one, stitching together arguably the best Gymkhana yet in the process. Check it out and make sure to stay tuned for Block's tantalizing Gymkhana 9 teaser at the end.
