Gymkhana: The wildest stunt driving ever filmed
Gymkhana is an over-the-top automotive stunt driving series made famous by Ken Block. With 12 installments and more than 500 million views, the videos showcase purpose-built vehicles performing incredible feats of driving precision in settings as varied as the streets of San Francisco or abandoned factories in Detroit.
Ken Block conceived of and drove in the first 10 installments before handing the torch to Subaru Motorsports USA driver Travis Pastrana in 2020, which marked the first time since 2009 that a Subaru vehicle has been used in the series. Vermont SportsCar handles all aspects of the vehicles’ design, engineering and fabrication, guaranteeing they are the wildest Subaru vehicles ever built. The “Airslayer STI” is featured in Gymkhana 2020 while the “1983 Subaru GL Family Huckster” can be seen in Gymkhana 2022.
