The video team responsible for Ken Block's first three Gymkhana videos is at it again, but this time, the action has been taken further off-road with a highly modified 2014 RZR XP1000, the new top-of-the-line Utility Task Vehicle (UTV) from Polaris. The video by Mad Media was published today as part of a campaign timed to follow last week's release of Polaris' newest offering.

The $20,000 recreational vehicles (Mad Media uses two XP1000s for the shoot), which started off with 107-horsepower 999.6cc two-cylinder engines before modifications, received suspension, engine and drivetrain upgrades before off-road truck racer and UTV champion RJ Anderson pitched them through some truly punishing terrain in an abandoned iron mine in Southern California's desert.

The stunts are insane, and we're impressed by the little UTV's capabilities, but to our eyes, the video lacks the finesse and progression of the first three Ken Block Gymkhana videos. The single-pitch drone of the UTV's engine doesn't help, either. Watch as much off-road action as you want in the 10+ minute video below.

      Truly the most impressive UTV video ever made! Kudo\'s to you all for putting that together... I\'ve watched it several times already and not even close to getting tired of it. I only wish my 2013 Jagged X had the suspension and power that thing has. $85k huh??? The powerball drawing is tomorrow right?

      That sound and handling reminds me of my Suzuki LTZ 400 back in the days...
