Just a Guy Drifting at 14,000 Feet in a ’65 Mustang, NBD

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

When the force is fully certified Mustang maniac Ken Block and the object turns out to be 14,115-foot-tall Pikes Peak in Colorado, what happens is the online equivalent of must-see TV.

Unveiled by the world-class rally driver as the latest installment of his Gymkhana series, Climbkhana: Pikes Peak is 10 minutes of death-defying drifts, donuts and handbrake turns featuring Block behind the wheel of a 1,400-HP twin-turbo ‘65 Ford Mustang Hoonicorn RTR V2.

Showcasing the wide array of Block’s driving skills — including a razor’s edge turn Block called the “wildest, scariest corner that I have ever slid in my life” — the visuals in the video look great and the soundtrack provided by the Stang’s methanol-powered engine ain’t too shabby either.

Long live Block and roll.
