By now, you’ve probably seen the latest supercar from Lamborghini. Surprising no one, the car is visually striking and integrates cues from the Aventador.
Ken Block has it pretty good. He gets paid to spend time hooning cars around the world while everyone watches.
Whoever said money can’t buy happiness obviously never had a Shelby Cobra and an empty living room.
The exact reason for this extreme level of hoonage isn’t known. Maybe the bank foreclosed on his house. Maybe, as one YouTube commented speculates, the talented driver in question just went through a divorce: he got the car, she go the house.
Either way, this is one of those occasions where words just won’t do, so watch the video after the jump:
Ken Block, the man who knows a thing or two about getting a car to go sideways, has revealed the release date for the long awaited Gymkhana 4.
Ken Block posted the following on his Facebook page this week, “I am exhausted, but almost done with filming Gymkhana FOUR, which is coming out August 16th. I traveled the globe for it, and am positive of this: GYM4 > GYM3.” Block also release a few sneak peak pictures of the video and there have been sightings of his Fiesta complete with “Gymkhana FOUR” decals in Brawdy South Wales last month. There is a strong possibility that the filming took place at RAF Brawdy in South Wales, and in one of the pictures the Fiesta is accompanied by a military vehicle. Regardless of where it was filmed, we are all pumped to see some serious hoonage!

It is understood that kids living in the country side climb behind the wheel of vehicles at an earlier age, whether it be to cut grass or haul hay. This, however, is not a story about a lawn mower or farm tractor.
The boy featured in this vehicle gets to hoon around in his dad’s shiny new Audi R8, performing donuts as his dad films. Surprisingly he does a great job considering the vehicle has tons of power and has a manual transmission. Better he be hooning it up in an R8 with his dad then sitting in front a TV playing video games, right?

Police in Australia are investigating a burnout performed by a hearse during a funeral service for a youth who died in a motorcycle accident.
Police say that the hearse was spotted smoking its tires along with 12 other vehicles immediately after the funeral Aaron Bryce, a 19 year old killed in a motorcycle crash.
“The driver of the hearse is to be interviewed in relation to hoon driving offences,” Acting Sergeant Dean Owen said to The Age. “[We understand] he was friends with some of the people and getting urged on to do it.”
The hoons in question were caught after police viewed camera phone footage of the burnouts, leading them to question the hearse’s driver, Michael O’Sullivan, a 44-year old funeral director and Justice of the Peace.
O’Sullivan’s father John denied the allegations and said that he was angry about his son and his business being accused of reckless behavior. “We are a reputable concern. We’ve been in business for 140-odd years. We don’t want this sort of bullshit.”
