Gymkhana 8 Livery For Ken Block’s Fiesta ST RX43 Revealed

Next video in series – featuring re-skinned ultra-reflective 650HP Ford subcompact – to drop February 29.

At the risk of dating ourselves, we remember way back in the day when pro skateboarder Neil Blender came out with a black-on-black signature deck – that is, black graphics against a black background – and how insanely punk rock we thought it was. We get a little bit of the same feels looking at the new livery on driver and action sports apparel mogul Ken Block’s 650-horsepower Ford Fiesta ST RX43, which was revealed via YouTube. The directionally reflective skin changes looks depending on the angle at which it’s viewed as well as how light is hitting it, and will be on full display in Gymkhana EIGHT, the next chapter in Block’s hooning series, which is set to break cover February 29th at 9 PM PST on the Ford Performance YouTube channel.

The livery reveal edit also touts Block’s new tire partner for gymkhana, Toyo Tires, as well as the R1Rs that will be at each corner. In conjunction with the new video, Block’s Hoonigan is offering a clothing line that features the Gymkhana EIGHT black-on-black livery. Each piece has a reflective ink and clear gel ink pattern that gives the pieces 3D depth and emulates the reflective livery. The Limited Edition capsule includes fleece, tees, tanks, socks and a collaboration Melin x Hoonigan hat. You can shop for them here.
