Ken Block Takes on Dubai in Gymkhana 8; Previews Ford Focus RS

How does Ken Block top speeding through Los Angeles in Gymkhana 7? He heads to the most lavish city in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai, for a one-of-a-kind drift session in his trusted Ford Fiesta. Featuring beautiful scenery, a variety of super cars and empty city streets that provide the perfect playground, Gymkhana 8 is Block’s best video to date.

Before Block even hits the streets of Dubai in his latest Gymkhana video, the excitement begins. The video starts out with the professional rally driver stepping into the driver’s seat of his Ford Fiesta only to find a cheetah riding shotgun. With a casual wave of the hand, Block motion for the cat to get out of the car and kicks off his trek through the desert on his way into the city. During the video, we’re met with a series of surprises, including a look at Dubai’s super-car police fleet as Block completes donuts within a circle of the vehicles and a unique jumbo jet appearance. At the end of the 10-minute clip, Block also gives viewers a glimpse of the brand-new Ford Focus RS, which Block will be using to compete in this year’s FIA World Rallycross Championship, and we have to say, it’s a true beauty.

Watch the full Gymkhana 8 video above to see all of the shenanigans take place and get a sneak peek of the Ford Focus RS. Trust us, it’s worth sparing 10 minutes.
