Ken Block – Gymkhana Car Build & Drive

If you watched the video of Ken Block destroying the beautiful city of San Francisco with his Ford Fiesta, you know how much of a bad ass he and his car truly are. And if you’re like most car enthusiasts you’re probably wondering, “how the hell did they manage to put 600 horsepower in that tiny car?” Well, now we know thanks to this 17-minute video produced by Popular Mechanics that features Ken Block talking about his amazing Gymkhana stunts while his chief engineer breaks down how the Ford Fiesta works. Ken Block has had many accomplishments over the years including competing in the X Games and World Rally Championships, but it’s his own Gymkhana series that impresses the most. Take a look at this very informative video that digs deep under the hood of the Fiesta and goes into the details of the inner workings of the suspension, braking, cooling, and much more.
