Climbkhana: Time For Tea?


It seems like it was only a month ago that we reported on Ken Block's Terrakhana but he's already moved onwards, and most definitely upwards...

This time out good old Kenneth is following in the footsteps of motorsport luminaries like Ari Vatanen, Walter Rohrl and, more recently, Sebastien Loeb by taking on Pike's Peak.

In traditional Hoonigan fashion, Block uses his all-wheel-drive Mustang Hoonicorn V2 with 1,400hp of twin-turbo goodness to attack the 14,110ft summit. With helicopter shots aplenty and a smorgasbord of GoPro angles - including one of the spooling turbos shooting flames as he downshifts - clearly no expense was spared.

The motorsport fans among you may notice the little nod to the aforementioned Ari's Climb Dance before he gets very sideways, very close to the cliff edge. You can watch the video here, sphincter clenching cliff hangers and all!

    No expense spared. Apart from a sun visor!

    he was a bit sh*t in the World RallyCross Championships last year. Completely outclassed

    I found this a bit underwhelming really. I guess there's only so many things you can go sideways around.

    Next up: Our mate Ken performs his gymkhana stunts in Brussels.

    Driving a renewables-recharged Toyota Prius, Ken circles Jean-Claude Juncker as he speaks at a smart rose-wood lectern, weaves in and out a field of rolling balls of red tape, and bursts through a haystack blockade manned by potato-tossing French farmers.

    Fantastic....loved every second of his latest episode. The handvisor was particularly funny. Excellent Work.
