The first trailer of the new 25th season of Top Gear has aired, showing Ken Block chasing the three presenters around on loose gravel.

Armed with a buggy, Officer Block has his sights set on Matt, Chris and Rory who are driving a selection of V8 sports cars, including the Ford Mustang GT350R, the McLaren 570 GT and the Jaguar F-Type SVR.

It’s not the first time we see Block showcasing his tire-shredding abilities on the popular show, with the last one being the now-infamous sight-seeing tour through London with his Hoonicorn Mustang.

If you ever wanted to see how a modern McLaren tackles the dirt or were just thirsty for some lovely V8 noises, the new season of Top Gear will have you covered.

Unfortunately the show didn’t reveal its premiere date just yet, but they did promise to announce it early next year.

Ken Block’s 700 HP Ford RS200 Evo Will Make You Yearn For The ’80s 24

The latest Ford Focus RS is amazing. However, it is far from the coolest vehicle to wear Ford’s famed ‘RS’ badge. That honor has to go to the RS200.

Built by Ford Europe from 1984 to 1986, the Ford RS200 was a road-going version of the brand’s Group B rally car and restricted to just 200 units worldwide.

Ford Performance driver Ken Block recently acquired number 34, a rare Evolution version, quickly adorned it with a matte black wrap and took to LA’s streets alongside his Focus RS. You only have to watch the videos below for a few seconds to realize just how special the RS200 is, particularly when compared to the new all-wheel drive hot hatch.

Powered by a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, the RS200 Evo delivers roughly 700 hp.

Road cars don’t get much better than this.

Gamer Recreats Ken Block’s Climbkana On Grand Theft Auto V 10

Posted by Brad Anderson in Games, Gymkhana, Ken Block, video on 11 10th, 2017


Ken Block’s Climbkhana is arguably the most audacious video in the thrilling Gymkhana series but that hasn’t stopped one dedicated gamer from replicating the video on Grand Theft Auto V.

As we know, Grand Theft Auto V doesn’t feature any vehicles which you can purchase in real-life. However, there are a number of cars which are blatant copies of popular vehicles, including the Ford Mustang.

Consequently, the gamer grabbed the closest thing to a 1965 Mustang and began the modifications, replicating the look of the Hoonicorn V2 to an extraordinary extent. In fact, the car even includes the huge turbochargers sticking out of the hood and adopts a familiar livery.

Perhaps even more incredible than the accuracy of the car, however, is how the gamer has replicated the various camera angles from Climbkana, even mimicking some of the most mind-blowing stunts. Included in these is Ken Block’s out-of-this-world slide to the edge of the road as he was climbing up Pikes Peak.
