VANCOUVER, Canada - We’ve seen stunt driver Ken Block  engage in insane vehicular madness as he drifts his modified Ford Fiesta ST RX43 though increasingly bizarre obstacle courses.

What if you swopped the 485kW Fiesta for a supercar – perhaps a Ferrari-hunting Lamborghini Gallardo?

VIDEO: Lambokhana – Gallardo run Ken Block-style’

Driver Damon Fryer posted a video inspired by Block’s antics and called it ‘Lambokhana - Lamborghini meets Gymkhana Ken Block Style’.

The video, posted on his YouTube channel Daily Driven Exotics, shows Fryer behind the wheel of the Gallardo as he drifts his way around a makeshift obstacle course in all its tyre-squealling glory.

'HOME-MADE GYMKHANA COURSE'

The video was filmed on Vancouver Island, Canada.

Fryer said: "Most people complain that owners of exotic cars don't drive their them often or hard enough. I put a end to all this by burning off a new set of tyres in an epic use of my home-made gymkhana course."

MODIFIED GALLARDO

Fryer explains: “The car is a 2006 Lamborghini Gallardo. The engine is stock but the car has exterior modifications such as a vinyl wrap in matte metallic grey.

"It has a carbon-fibre superleggera front bumper, mirrors and rear wing. The wheels are a set of 19” PUR design with Yokohama Advan AD08 tyres. Inside is a custom MACarbon steering-wheel in suede.”

MORE SUPERCAR STUNTS

In February 2013 we reported on a dirt-tracking drifting Ferrari  being pushed through a makeshift WRC forest stage.

How about a rival Italian supercar doing the same? Not content to be left out of the mud, rival supercar maker Lamborghini gave an answer to the Enzo WRC video - a Gallardo galloping around a dirt-road stage.
