Stunt driver Ken Block returns for another instalment of vehicular-lunacy - The ultimate gymkhana grid course. Watch as he drifts his way through an insane auto playground behind the wheel of his 485kW Ford Fiesta ST RX43! Did we mention he drifts around Lambos?

Ken Block is a man with many hats; he is the Hoonigan Racing rally driver with the Monster team, DC Shoes founder but also one of the best drifters. Block returns in November 2013 for his latest video - Gymkhana six: The ultimate gymkhana grid course. It's insane!

Video: Ken Block's auto playground


Block perfected the art of perfect donuts makes every petrol head think to themselves: “I want to drive like Ken Block.”

He is also Need For Speed's racing advisor and built the ultimate gymkhana grid course – “a real-life playground to showcase the sheer speed, fun and exhilarating action of driving.”

In the video, Block takes on a wrecking ball, drifts around two Lamborghini Aventadors and evades the videogame-themed Redview County cops on Segways in his 2013 Ford Fiesta ST RX43.

His Fiesta produces 485kW and 880Nm, rides on Fifteen52 18x9 Turbomac Pirelli Zero tyres and sprints from 0-100km/h in just 1.8 seconds.

Crank up the volume and watch the genius at work.
