The six moments in Ken Block's Gymkhana Eight that will melt your face off

New, 11 comments

Entrepreneur, celebrity of the extreme sporting world, and generally insane madman Ken Block has developed a reputation for creating the most entertaining car videos on the planet with his Gymkhana series. This is not an overstatement: you may recall that in his last outing, the dude literally drifted underneath a lowrider mid-hop.

Now we're onto his latest, Gymkhana Eight. It is indescribable. Actually, there's no point in even attempting to describe what this man is doing in Dubai with an endlessly modified 650-horsepower Fiesta; you're better off just watching it for yourself.

Here are a few of the moments where I briefly died and/or experienced another deeply upsetting physiological event:

When the Fiesta disappears in a sand drift
