The relentless Gymkhana hype-machine is ramping up yet again and the first teaser is officially upon us.

Ken Block's Hybrid Function Hoon Machine will play the lead roll in Gymkahana 4 and we get a brief (and appropriately loud) taste of the turbocharged rally machine's anti-lag system. Nine GoPro cameras catch the two-foot-long flame projecting out the Ford's titanium exhaust, and you can get your first taste after the jump before the real show begins on Tuesday.

      We shot this all over Universal Studios Hollywood for 5 days. We got to run the car inside actual stages and all over the Universal park ride as well, Ken was sure enjoying this one. Full deal big budget film crew was on for this one so the production value was quite large. I do agree that Tanner needs to be getting A LOT more redo than Ken. Tanner worked with use on film sets as stunt driver for a while until he got going on his own.....hes a provision machine, amazing talent. He did beat Ken at his own game on the Gymkhana grid competition BTW

      Wow I've had enough of this overrated guy. He obviously sucks at his own sport. Can we get some more Tanner Foust please?

        He sucks at his own sport? If he sucked so much, how come he got to the final? He was beat by Tanner Foust. Tanner isn't just some horrible driver. He was beat by a great driver. He wasn't even beat that badly, only by a few tenths of a second.

          Narom, he's talking about Block's sport. As in his own sport that he made called Gymkhana Grid Invitational. He was beat at his own sport. Anyway, Enrique, read my whole comment and not just the part about Foust.

          So if we dropped Narom into a WRC car, we can expect better results?

          His sport is rallying, how's the WRC working out for him?

        Kens not overrated by any means. Just because theres one or two drivers that can go faster sometimes, does not make him overrated. Id like to see how any of you here would do in his car around the courses that he does. Ill give you a MONTH to try and do half of the stuff Ken does on his videos.

      Elmo, stops defending Ken Block's poor driving skill. Let's the #'s do the talk ! He's a overly-hyped rockstar.

        Pretty sure that anyone who is even allowed to drive in the WRC is a better driver than you.....

          Actually, yes, the X Games does count. It's a major motorsports accomplishment. When you're facing some of the biggest names in rally and other motorsports, it counts. You're about as big of a moron as the moron named "Myself". You hate Ken Block for all the wrong reasons. You base him being over rated on him failing in the WRC and you are blinded by all the morons who you like to follow behind that say he sucks because his gymkhana videos are edited. Newsflash! Ken Block isn't in the WRC to win.

          @axiomatik: you are completely right ! I NEVER said I am a good driver, nor I promote myself on the net (youtube) claiming to be a good driver ! Now am I? There are a several excellent drivers out there that can outdrive Ken Block any day of the week, they just do bother with those useless gymkhana videos. They don't have to as a matter of fact. Those drivers let their championship do the talking (and before Mr. know-it-all Elmo says anything about the X Games). X Games doesn't count.

      LOL, Ford ecoboost the flames are not very "eco".

        @Jaimito Ylasalchicha
        He's not using an EcoBoost, He's using the Duratec 2.0L.
        Dipstick!

        @Jaimito Ylasalchicha
        Remember, you won't find this on a production vehicle. So yes, it still is very "eco". ...and awesome.

        @Jaimito Ylasalchicha
        Because he is sponsored by Ford. He is marketing EcoBoost on his car.

      The exhaust note seems to be saying, "Red Bull.... Red Bull..... Red Bull !!!". Not "Rockstar!", or "Monster!"

      Ken blocks not overrated by any means, lets stop the BS. Yes, Tanner is faster, that doesnt make Ken overrated. Ken got massively popular from 3 very entertaining and very good skill displaying videos, and suddenly he's "overrated". he qualifies for all his races in X games, finishes in podium or very close every time....that is not an easy task when you're up against guys like Tanner. Like to see you guys jump in kens Ford a try ANY of the stunts on hits videos....
