Suzuki highly considered aerodynamic influence on the car activity and completed a very effective wing. The wing is combined with its long-wheel-base chassis and enables an “on-the-rail” feeling of driving.

Ken Blocks Fiesta RS – Gymkhana 4

Uncle Ken is back at it with his Gymkhana tricks and special effects, this time he is making a mess around some of the Hollywood sets. His new Ford Fiesta RS is definitely a amazing piece of machinery. Towards the end of the video clip Ken Block side swipes a ladder with a Gorilla at the top. I glad to report that the Gorilla was not harmed.
