11Chris Harris checks out Ken Block's Hoonicorn '65 Mustang

Ken Block's Hoonicorn, which stars in Gymkhana Seven, might still bear a passing resemblance to a vintage 1965 Ford Mustang, but underneath the skin, the car is one of the baddest custom machines to ever do a smoky burnout on the road. The ever enthusiastic British auto journalist Chris Harris is now showing what really makes Block's new ride tick on video, and Harris even gets to go for quite a ride.

4Ken Box 2 is cardboard drifting greatness

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Ken Block must spend a lot of time blushing. At this point, the videos online that parody or take inspiration from the drifter's Gymkhana series vastly outnumber his authentic output. That's not necessarily a bad thing, though, as some of the clips are nearly as good as the original in their own way. Case in point: last year's Ken Box Gymkhana had a guy on a Razor Crazy Cart covered in a cardboard box with dubbed-in sound drifting through a wa

14Ken Block returns to terrorize LA in Gymkhana 7

Ken Block is back with his heavily modified Ford Mustang, and he's taking to the streets of sunny Los Angeles for the seventh installment of his traditionally insane, drift-tastic Gymkhana videos.

9Ken Block's 1965 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR and CR Supercars Villain are retro done right

Gymkhana king Ken Block has had a pretty simple car history in his trademark videos, starting out with Subaru Impreza rally cars before moving into Ford Focus racers for the past four installments. His next video, though, Gymkhana Seven, kind of goes back in time.

12Ken Block pulls out of Istanbul Rallycross over security concerns [UPDATE]

UPDATE: Autosport reports that Tanner Foust has also withdrawn from the World Rallycross Championship event in Turkey, citing personal reasons.

26Ken Block hoons his Ford F-150 RaptorTrax on the slopes

Ken Block drives Fords. Hoons the heck out of 'em, actually. Mostly Fiestas, but also the occasional Focus or Mustang. But earlier this year, the Gymkhana guru revealed his baddest Ford yet: an F-150 SVT Raptor on tracks. And true to form, here he is putting it to the test in the latest video from Monster Energy and Hoonigan Racing.

26Ken Block walks you through his new 'Hoonigan Racing' HQ

Ken Block seems like one hell of a nice guy. I ran into him at CES this past January, and he dropped the video games he was playing to chat with me for a while. His crew also recently gave our Steve Ewing a tour of the offices you're about to see on this video. Good guy to know.

4Ken Block and friends race light in silly-beautiful Castrol commercial

How does one make fast, loud, drifting cars better? Well, you can add more fast, loud, drifting cars or you can add lasers. Either or, really. In this case, Castrol did the right thing and added both, creating a highly stylized commercial for its Edge Titanium motor oil starring South African racer Adrian Zaugg, BMW factory driver Augusto Farfus, Audi DTM and Le Mans staple Mike Rockenfeller and some bloke named Ken Block.

7Watch how Ken Block spent his weekend in Barbados

Regardless of what you think of his skill as a racer, Ken Block is an expert showman. At this point, he has a career of showing up around the world to do vehicular stunts, and he's still able to go racing as well. It's a pretty sweet niche to carve out. Recently, Block was in Barbados to participate in Top Gear Live and the first event of the Global Rallycross Championship season, and Ford Racing produced a short video to show off his exploits.

AddKen Block and friends go dark for upcoming Gymkhana clip

We've seen Ken Block do what he does best just about everywhere he does it: on closed lots, in warehouses, on public streets, at rallycross events, in competitive rallies... even on the soccer pitch. But the one thing they've all shared in common (aside from his ever-present Ford Fiesta HFHV) is that they've been in the light of day. But not the next one.

7Footkhana pits Ken Block against Neymar Jr.

Whether you're going for speed or for show, professional driving is as much about working the pedals as it about man-handling the wheel and shifter. And nobody does it quite like Ken Block. But is his fancy footwork up to par with that of an international soccer star like Neymar?

35Watch Ken Block's scary Rally America crash from inside the cockpit

Ken Block became famous for his series of Gymkhana videos, but he's a real racer in his own right. Block has competed many rounds in the FIA World Rally Championship and also rallied in the 2013 Rally America series. He nearly won that latter title last year – if not for a massive crash in the final event of the season.

10Ken Block's latest Gymkhana video is more of the same awesomeness

GoPro cameras are quite popular in a number of arenas, thanks to their general ease of use. Get the right mount, figure out where you want the camera, position it, hit a button and do whatever awesome thing you want captured on video. What happens when you have an overabundance of GoPros, though?

12Ford F-150 RaptorTrax is Ken Block's ultimate snowmobile

Even when Ken Block isn't starring in the latest Gymkhana video or tearing up Global RallyCross courses, he's finding new ways to redefine "awesome" as it applies to motorsports. For evidence of this, look no further than Block's latest Monster-badged creation, the Ford F-150 RaptorTrax.

3Watch this 1/8-scale R/C tribute to Ken Block's Gymkhana 6

This radio-controlled tribute to Ken Block's Gymkahana 6 is half the length but perhaps twice as hard. HPI racing makes R/C car kits, and to announce their officially licensed version of Block's World Rally Championship Ford Fiesta, they laid out a track mimicking stunts from the most recent drift-o-matic obstacle course.

28Ken Block is at it again in Gymkhana 6

If there's one thing we'll say about Ken Block and his latest installment in the Gymkhana family, it's that it's far more structured than previous videos, but that doesn't mean it skimps on the entertainment. Block is on a purpose-built course which was touted as "The... Ultimate... Gymkhana... Grid... Course" in last week's preview. Unlike Gymkhana 5, which took placed on closed streets in San Francisco, this course seems much more compact.

8Ken Block releases first teaser for Gymkhana 6, set for Nov. 11 debut

Fans of DC Shoes, Monster Energy Drinks and, of course, lots of loud, drifty action have been without one of Ken Block's infamous Gymkhana videos since the fifth installment terrorized the streets of San Francisco in July of 2012.

20Ken Block's Gymkhana parodied by Ken Box and his Crazy Cart

Do we all remember the Razor Crazy Cart? If you don't, click here, and be prepared to wonder why we didn't have toys this cool as children. For those that didn't watch the first clip, the Crazy Cart has a wheel on a castor at each corner, and an electrically powered wheel in the middle that can turn a full 360 degrees. There's also the most adorable handbrake, which allows some drifty antics. In short, the Crazy Cart might be our favorite toy of 2013.

10X Games LA Global RallyCross race breaks records, cars [w/video]

Remember the old Rodney Dangerfield joke about how he went to a fight and a hockey game broke out? We went to a demolition derby held at the X Games in Los Angeles yesterday and a round of the Global RallyCross series broke out. If you don't want to know who won the gold, then you should stop reading now...

8First X Games Gymkhana GRID race is officially in the books [w/video]

If you don't want to know who won the first-ever X Games Gymkhana GRID event, which just happened late last night in Los Angeles, now would be the time to stop reading.

24Ken Block does his thing with the Ford Fiesta ST

Ken Block recently headed to Budapest to take some fans on a ride around an ice rink in the Ford Fiesta ST. Shockingly, there were cameras on hand to capture the whole event. Don't expect to see the caliber of antics we're usually accustomed to from everyone's favorite stunt driver, though – Block was left to wield a bone-stock Fiesta ST on a slushy cone course, which means the clip is about as entertaining as watching your average autocrosser sprint around a parking lot. Still, we won't t
