Ken Block's Gymkhana Three, PT 2: Bonus Edit

Ken Block knows what driving is all about. He is starting to take the auto industry by a storm, doing things others have only dreamed of. I love Block because what he does is original, creative, and it involves gratuitous amounts of horsepower. The car pictured above is a Ford Fiesta on crack. This thing uses a 2.0L turbocharged Ecoboost engine, and it boasts roughly 600hp. If this were released twenty years ago, it would be the worlds most powerful hatchback, ever. Even by today's standards, it has too much power. Thankfully, it puts the power down with the proper equipment, because anything less would disintegrate under such a heavy load. Yes, there are those of you who believe Ken's not really a good driver, he has to try more than once to complete a stunt, he's a crappy WRC racer, but I say to you; he's a better driver than you and 95% of the rest of the world. Watch this video and you'll see what I'm talking about.

PS: Please excuse my obsession with his re-edited videos, it's like they've been reborn...
