ANNAPOLIS, USA – The Gymkhana video sequence is again so as to add some tyre-shredding sparkle to what can solely be described as a turbulent yr, and far has modified on the Hoonigan entrance too.

The newest Gymkhana clip, launched on YouTube this week, additionally sees Ken Block passing the torch to fellow rally rival Travis Pastrana, who undertakes the duty of terrorising his hometown of Annapolis, Maryland.

And wait, what, he’s not in a Ford? Indeed, this newest hooning extravaganza centres round a closely modified Subaru Impreza STI that pushes out 643kW.

Of course, this newest video was filmed and edited by the identical staff that makes all of the Gymkhana movies, particularly Hoonigan Media Machine.

But what can we are saying concerning the automotive?

“When Ken Block handed over the reins for Travis Pastrana to take over this year’s Gymkhana film, Travis knew he couldn’t just show up with any ‘ol racecar: he would need the wildest Subaru STI ever built,” Hoonigan Media stated.

“So Subaru Motorsports USA tapped Vermont Sportscar to do just that, putting together a Gymkhana car with absolutely no restrictions. The result? An 862hp (643kW) STI that could corner, slide, and fly better than any car before it. With some special touches just for the video, of course.”

You can verify that every one within the video under.

The closely modified automotive that made all of it occur can be extremely mild and agile because of an Active Eero carbon fibre physique, and boy does it prefer to rev, with a redline set at 8000rpm. You can take a more in-depth have a look at the automotive within the video under:
