Ken Block tears up Dubai in Gymkhana 8

Gymkhana 8 has landed and this time Ken Block is making mayhem in Dubai at the wheel of his Ford Fiesta RX43.

It’s quite a machine, with all-wheel-drive, 650bhp, a 0-60mph time of 1.8secs and an exhaust that might actually be classed as an artillery piece.

The film is titled Ultimate Exotic Playground and Kenny from the Block takes full advantage, blasting through sandy desert, ripping around the grounds of seven-star hotels and tearing up completely empty four-lane highways.

Along the way, he donuts around a Ford F-150 truck that’s driving along on two wheels; donuts in a box formed from the Dubai police’s supercar fleet (which crops up many times); drag races against a Bugatti Veyron, Ferrari F12, Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Aventador (you can guess the result); and donuts around a taxiing jumbo jet. There’s even a not-very-subtle cameo by the new Ford GT. And – completely inexplicably – a leopard.

Let us know how you think this rates among the Hoonigan’s previous films.
