Ridiculously awesome gymkhana video

This is me… …in my dreams. The driver in the video is Ken Block – a co-founder and Chief Brand Officer of DC Shoes. The car he’s driving is a 2008 Subaru STi that was custom built by Crawford Performance and the Skunkworks team.  It’s got 565 WHP, 590 ft/lb torque, and some custom valved […]
