If you can still come up with something rad after seven extremely viral Youtube videos, then you’re seriously onto something. We can now confirm that Ken Block will be producing the eighth instalment of the 350 million–plus views Gymkhana video line-up, and the livery unveiled in the video below is by far the best to date. 

What makes the livery on Ken Block's Ford Fiesta so cool is the directionally reflective, black-on-black look that changes depending on what angle light is hitting it from, and what angle it’s being viewed from. Is this the future of competition-car livery?

Gymkhana Eight is scheduled to drop on the Ford Performance Youtube channel, February 29, so lock it into your calendars! 

René Vermeer

Dutch, French, or just a Kiwi, René isn’t quite sure, but he does know he has a passion for Japanese vehicles like no other. A well-seasoned Gran Turismo player dating back to his single-digit days, René has a comprehensive knowledge of a wide range of performance vehicles and has owned more than 30 performance cars here in New Zealand, ranging from Nissans to Hondas. A lover of photography, you’ll find him either peeping under someone’s bonnet to snap a detailed shot, or on the side of the racetrack, perfecting his panning.
